It was the NBC Sports Network that grabbed the top two spots of the night in the Thursday cable ratings this week, with its continued coverage of the Winter Olympics, which scored back-to-back 0.8 and 0.7 ratings in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, TNT’s live broadcast of the Minnesota Timberwolves vs LA Lakers NBA basketball game rounded out the Top 3 of the night with a 0.5 and 1.30 million viewers.

ESPN’s coverage of the college basketball game between Purdue and Wisconsin also landed in the Top 25 with a 0.3. Despite holding steady for several weeks as well, VH1’s “RuPaul’s All Stars” took a minor hit this time around, falling one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.3. On the Paramount Network, “Lip Sync Battle” remained outside of the Top 25 yet again and maintained a 0.2 rating.
