Similar to last week, TNT’s weekly NBA basketball coverage led the Thursday cable ratings this week. The first game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder scored highest with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, while the later game between the LA Lakers and the Phoenix Suns scored one-tenth less with a 0.5 on the network. TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” followed behind with a 0.5.

ESPN’s coverage of the ACC Tournament performed well also, raking in 0.4 – 0.3 ratings throughout the night. “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” meanwhile, fell one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.4 on Comedy Central.

The History Channel’s “Swamp People” took a minor hit, falling two-tenths from a 0.6 to a 0.4. Outside of the top 25, USA’s “Colony” maintained a 0.3 for the third week in a row. After rising somewhat in the week before as well, though, CMT’s “Nashville” dropped one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.2.
