The NBA Playoffs:  Conference Finals with the Heat vs. Celtics was the most-watched program on cable last night, earning a 4.8 rating among adults 18-49, followed by SportsCenter, which scored a 2.5 rating. Swamp People was the number three program, earning a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.

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 Impact Wrestling.

  • Observer

    I always try not to be Rardy.

  • David

    Game 7 will be through the roof and on a Saturday at that

  • Jason

    Sad that a great product in TNA wrestling can’t get more viewers. Anyone that watches both WWE and TNA with an open mind will tell you that the TNA product is way better than the WWE product atm.

  • TatiG

    @David, Saturday night Game 7 might be lower since it’s Saturday.

    But good to see 11mil turned in to see LeBron do his thing ;)

    They all thought he was gonna fail. The game was a blowout. If it wasn’t, these numbers would have been even higher.

  • TatiG

    LOL @SPORTSCENTER LATE trying to pretend that it’s popular :) if anybody watched it, it was the first 15min.

  • Josh

    Wow, No ratings on the pauly D Project or Punk’d.

  • JR

    Don’t expect rediculous numbers for game 7. Saturday’s are terrible ratings days. It should be at least 10 mil though

  • JR

    Obviously the only reason sportcenter late got that many viewers is because it was after the game. Basically a post game show

  • David

    True, but even with people watching the game at bars, I think it will be over 12 million. This game was over from the start and Saturday it should be a lot closer because noway EVERY player on the Celtics play that horrible again. Lebron won’t go off again either, but his team will do what they have done before and keep it close with threes and Lebron driving to the rim.

    If it is 12 million or over we will know before next week because ESPN and the NBA will make sure they release the numbers.

  • Melanie

    Go Heat, let’s win game 7!! :)

  • Jason

    Come on guys, watch TNA wrestling.

  • Ram510

    Still good ratings for Men at Work. I hope it doesn’t continue to slide anymore though

  • Dillan

    Pauly D had Britney on it so I’m shocked it didn’t make the list.

  • SarahL

    Great ratings for the Heat/Celtics. Tomorrow’s game should bring crazy ratings.

  • wwerules!!!

    @jason. really? oviously if they cant get higher ratings than raw and smackdown than wwe is the better company better wrestlers and is coming out with a video game and a network so shutup, impact is boring and if u have noticed they have droove three of their employees to wwe that comment is offensive to all wrestling fans and they are copying wwe and makingthier own hall of fame like thiere talent is better than wwe (except wwe alumni)

  • Oliver

    Men At Work is remaining buoyant. TBS will be happy. Wonder if it’ll get a mass order for syndication purposes (ala Anger Management).

    After all, Sony have a bit of a reputation for keeping shows long past their sell-by date to ensure syndication.

  • bb

    Another good one for Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding. Over 1.7 million 2nd highest episode. Next week is the wedding finale so I think they’ll go higher. I don’t get Kathys numbers, even with DBTFTW as a strong lead in it stays the same. I always turn it though Aa soon as Kim’s show goes off.

  • Mr Mikey

    @Jason
    be quiet you sound pathetic. Nobody cares about some stupid impact wrestling. Great number for NBA playoffs considering it was a blow out.

  • Matt

    Wait,
    Where is Punk’d and Pauly D

    and why was there a new ep of Ridiculousness on at 11:30?

    Doesnt make any sense

  • Bob

    TNA Impact wresting is a better product than WWE to be fair though. Only 13 year old nerds watch WWE over TNA. The demo numbers prove that much
