Like many of the past few weeks, ESPN’s coverage of the NBA Playoffs led the night in the Thursday cable ratings this week. The game between the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets landed on top with a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, a couple special late-night editions of “SportsCenter” performed well throughout the night also, raking in 0.9-0.3 ratings for the network.

TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” followed quickly behind the playoffs with a 0.5, one-tenth higher than the 0.4 it scored the week before. On The History Channel, “Swamp People” ticked back down a tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4 again. “Lip Sync Battle” returned on Spike with a 0.3, fairly in line with the series’ previous few episodes.
