The NBA All-Star festivities on Saturday were far and away the No. 1 show on cable (and all of TV). TNT’s coverage of the dunk contest, 3-point shootout and skills challenge delivered 5.63 million viewers — up slightly from 5.59 million in 2016 — and a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 (down from 2.6 last year).

Lifetime’s movie “Britney Ever After” didn’t do much with a 0.4 and 1.01 million viewers. That compares unfavorably to recent originals “Beaches” (0.6, 2.21 million) and “Surviving Compton” (0.9, 2.29 million). The HBO premiere of “The Legend of Tarzan” scored a 0.6, “Dragon Ball Z Kai” a 0.5 and “Dragon Ball Super” a 0.3.
