Similar to last week’s numbers, it was the March Madness NCAA basketball tournament that landed on top in the Thursday cable ratings this week. This time around, however, all of the top games were broadcast from TBS, with the network scoring 1.5 – 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 throughout the night. “Flip or Flop” followed directly behind with a 0.5 as well, the highest non-basketball program of the night.

Meanwhile, The History Channel’s “Swamp People” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4 on the network. On Comedy Central, “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah”  managed to maintained its previous 0.3 once again. Outside of the Top 25, USA’s “Colony” held steady with a 0.2 for the second week in a row, after dropping slightly in the week before.
