Friday Cable Ratings: NBA Playoffs, + ‘SportsCenter’, ‘WWE Friday Night SmackDown’, ‘Common Law’, ‘Fairly Legal’, ‘House of Payne’ & More

 

ESPN’s NBA Playoff coverage was the highest rated programming on cable, earning an 3.2 adults 18-49 rating. SportsCenter at 11:21 and 12:20 came in second and third place, earning a 1.8 and 0.9 respectively.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary source. If you don’t see your show it wasn’t in that top 100 list.

The list below is long but you can use your browsers “find on page” feature (usually CTRL+F or CMD+F) to search – that’s probably the easiest way to find last night’s episode of Ultimate Fighter Live.
