It was a sports-heavy night in the Thursday cable ratings this week. TNT landed on top with its NBA basketball coverage, beginning with its broadcast of the Celtics vs Warriors game, which scored a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49. The network’s broadcast of the later game between the Rockets and Suns landed fairly high in the ratings as well, scoring a 0.6 on the network, while some of TNT’s other pre and post-game coverage raked in additional 0.6 – 0.4s throughout the night.

Meanwhile, the NFL Network’s Thursday night football coverage grabbed a majority of the spots in the night’s Top 5. The network’s broadcast of the Tennessee vs Pittsburgh game also managed to rake in a 1.2 for itself, while some of the usual pre and post-game specials scored 1.0 – 0.4s. Additionally, Lifetime’s “Project Runway” ticked up one-tenth from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5 this time around.
