For the second week in a row, TNT led the night in the Thursday cable ratings. This time it was the network’s live broadcast of the 76ers vs Cavaliers NBA game that scored the top spot with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 2 million viewers. TNT landed in the top 3 of the night again with its broadcast of the later game between the Timberwolves and the Trailblazers as well, which scored a 0.5.

Last night also featured the highly-anticipated season 2 premiere of FX’s “Atlanta,” which saw the series return with its first episode since November 2016. The premiere raked in a 0.4 rating on the network with 851,000 viewers, and while this was down from the 0.5 that the show’s series premiere had scored, it was steady with its first season’s finale episode.

VH1’s “RuPaul’s All Stars” managed to continue its recent ratings uptick and rose one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5 this week. On the History Channel, “Swamp People” held steady with another 0.3.
