TNT’s continued coverage of the NBA conference finals maintained the network’s firm hold at the top of the Monday cable ratings yet again this week. The network’s broadcast of the Warriors vs Rockets game led with a 3.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.82 million viewers, while TNT’s additional “Inside the NBA Playoffs” special followed closely behind with a 1.7.

VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” rounded out the top 3 of the night by maintaining its previous 1.0 for the second week in a row. On Bravo, the season 7 premiere of “Basketball Wives” raked in a 0.9, down two-tenths from its season 6 reunion episode, which had scored a 1.1 last year.

Meanwhile, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” managed to tick up one-tenth from a 0.9 to a 1.0 peak rating across its 3-hour-long broadcast this week. With its penultimate episode as well, AMC’s “The Terror” held steady with another 0.2, just outside of the top 25.
