The season premiere of “Swamp People” landed on top in the Thursday cable ratings this week. The returning series scored two back-to-back 0.6 ratings in adults 18-49, and drew in a peak 2.5 million viewers. This is fairly in line for the History Channel series, scoring just slightly higher than the season 7 finale’s 0.5 from May of 2016, and the 1.8 million viewers it drew in then as well.

TNT’s Boston Celtics vs Chicago Bulls NBA basketball game scored second with a 0.5 on TNT. Landing outside of the Top 25, USA’s “Colony” dipped from a 0.3 to a 0.2

Meanwhile, CMT’s “Nashville” held steady with a 0.2 on the network, and even managed to tick up slightly from its previous 771,000 viewers to 832,000 this week.
