The Chicago Bulls squaring off against the Boston Celtics in game seven on Saturday on TNT was the most-watched first round NBA playoff game on cable ever, and also the most-watched program of the week. Bulls/Celtics grabbed the top two spots, followed by WWE Raw and NCIS.

The Jonas Brothers' Jonas didn't fare as well as the Fairly Odd Parents programming blocks.

In Plain Sight dropped out of the top 20 when it came to viewers, but not too far to #22 with 3.668 million.
