TNT’s live coverage of the NBA playoffs led the night in the Monday cable ratings this week. The network’s broadcast of the Spurs vs Warriors game scored the top spot with a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.65 million viewers. The earlier game between the Heat and the 76ers landed in the top 3 of the night as well with a 1.4, while TNT’s additional pre and post-game coverage scored some more 0.7 – 0.6s.

Following its usual post-“Wrestlemania” tick up last week too, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” took a minor hit this time around, falling one-tenth from a 1.5 to a 1.4 peak rating across its 3-hour broadcast. VH1’s “Love Hip Hop: Atlanta” and “Teyana & Iman” both maintained their previous 1.0 and 0.7s, respectively.

Also on VH1, “Leave it to Stevie” dipped one-tenth to a 0.5, while MTV’s “Teen Mom” similarly fell from a 0.7 to a 0.6. In addition, AMC’s “The Terror” was pushed out of the top 25, after falling short of its previous 0.3 with a 0.2 rating and 905,000 viewers.
