With 3 Lakers/Suns NBA Playoff games, TNT had an easy time topping the adults 18-49 cable primetime averages for the week. With two Magic/Celtics games, ESPN was a strong second in adults 18-49. Even with all the NBA action, USA held off TNT for the narrow win in average primetime viewership, with the always strong WWE Raw, and a boatload of NCIS repeats.

No surprise that Nickelodeon was number one for total day average cable viewership.
