NBA Playoffs Keep TNT Atop Primetime Cable Networks

tnt.gifThe NBA Playoffs helped keep TNT atop the primetime Cable Network weekly ratings list for the week of May 12-18, 2008.  That's their third straight week with TNT at #1.

In big Primetime moves, CNN fell 7 places to #19, and AMC rose 10 places to #14, and SciFi rose 8 places to #6.

As usual, Nickelodeon once again took the #1 spot for Total Day cable viewers.

In the big Total Day moves, SciFi moved up 13 places to #13, and CNN fell 3 places to #19.
