Unlike last week, it was TNT’s broadcast of the Rockets vs Thunder NBA game that landed the top spot in the Thursday cable ratings this week, with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.59 million viewers. USA’s “WWE Smackdown” followed closely behind, scoring a 0.8 as well – just one-tenth less than its previous 0.9. The History Channel’s “The Curse of Oak Island” rounded out the top 3 of the night, and held steady with yet another 0.7.

Also on the History Channel, the series premiere of “The Curse of Civil War Gold” raked in a 0.5 for itself with 2.31 million viewers. Meanwhile, following its premiere last week, USA’s “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G.” took a predictable hit this time around and fell from a 0.7 to a 0.4.

On OWN, “The Haves and the Have Nots” managed to tick up one-tenth to a 0.5, while “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” dipped to a 0.5. Both TBS’ “The Detour” and MTV’s “The Challenge: Vendettas” were able to maintain their previous 0.4 and 0.5 ratings, respectively.
