CNN and Fox News led the night in the Thursday cable ratings this week with their coverage of the US missile attack on Syria. “Anderson Cooper” scored the top 1.0 rating of the night, while “CNN Tonight” (0.8), “Hannity” (0.7), and “Shepard Smith Reporting” (0.6) followed closely behind.

On The History Channel, “Swamp People” experienced a minor increase in its ratings, ticking up one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5 this week. Meanwhile, TNT’s coverage of the NBA basketball games between Boston and Atlanta, and Minnesota and Portland raked in 0.5 and 0.4 ratings, respectively, for the network throughout the night.

Outside of the top 25, though, the season 2 finale of USA’s “Colony” managed to hold steady with a 0.3 for the second week in a row.
