Keeping in line with the past few weeks, ESPN’s coverage of the NBA Playoffs landed on top in the Thursday cable ratings this week. The Utah Jazz vs Golden State Warriors game won the night with a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49, while the earlier game between Boston and Washington followed closely behind with a 1.6. A couple special late and early “SportsCenter” episodes performed well for the network also, raking in a 0.9 and a 0.5.

The NBC Sports Network’s continued coverage of the NHL Semi-Finals landed in the Top 25 as well, with the Ottawa vs New York Rangers game scoring a 0.3. After taking a noticeable hit the week before too, TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” held steady with a 0.4 for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, The History Channel’s “Swamp People” rose one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5.
