TNT’s coverage of the NBA Playoffs landed on top in the Tuesday cable ratings this week. Scoring 1.4 and 1.3 ratings in adults 18-49, with the Chicago Bulls vs Boston Celtics game leading the night. Meanwhile, USA’s weekly “WWE Smackdown” broadcast followed closely behind with a 0.8, down three-tenths from the 1.1 it scored the week before.

On Freeform, the final season premiere of “Pretty Little Liars” raked in a 0.7, the same as what its season premiere scored in 2016. With “Liars” acting as its lead-in, the series premiere of “Famous in Love,” however, scored a 0.3, losing more than half of the “Pretty Little Liars” audience. That’s not necessarily surprising, though, compared to the other shows in that time slot on the network.

OWN’s “If Loving You is Wrong” dipped one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4, while Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” also fell from a 0.7 to a 0.6 this week. Both “The Detour” (0.4) and “The Challenge: Invasion” held steady with their previous numbers.
