ESPN’s weekly NBA Basketball coverage followed closely behind with 0.6 and 0.5 ratings, respectively, throughout the night.

HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” held steady with a 0.5 as well. On Lifetime, both “Rap Game” and “Bring It!” managed to maintain their season-long 0.4 streaks. Meanwhile, The Discovery Channel’s “The Wheel” ticked up one-tenth from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4.
