warriors-rockets-ratings-april-18-16

The return of “Game of Thrones” tops the cable rankings for April 18-24 — no surprise there. The show delivered a 4.0 rating and 7.94 million viewers for its Season 6 premiere, down just a little from Season 5’s opener.

The first full week of the NBA Playoffs filled up a large portion of the rest of the rankings. Games on TNT and ESPN occupy 13 spots in the Top 25 among adults 18-49 and 12 spots in the viewer Top 25.
