For the second consecutive week, CMT’s reality series “Party Down South” enjoyed a ratings increase.

After rising to a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating with 618,000 viewers last week, “Party” improved to a 0.5 rating with 747,000 viewers for the latest episode.

The 0.5 adults 18-49 rating was in line with that posted by the second season premiere on June 5. The viewership average was down slightly from that episode’s mark of 831,000.

Only one first season episode drew a larger viewership count than this week’s broadcast. None posted a stronger adults 18-49 rating.
