In the Tuesday cable ratings this week, two back-to-back NBA playoff broadcasts captured the top spots of the night. TNT’s live Pelicans vs Warriors broadcast landed on top with a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 with 5.65 million viewers, while the earlier game between the Cavaliers and the Raptors followed closely behind with a 2.1. Both games were up significantly from last Tuesday’s NBA playoff broadcasts, which had scored 1.6 and 1.4s, respectively.

On USA, “WWE Smackdown” held steady with the same 0.8 that it had scored the week before, while TBS’ “The Last O.G.” similarly maintained its previous 0.4. Both Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (0.6) and USA’s “Unsolved: the Murders of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.” (0.3) maintained their previous ratings as well.

Outside of the top 25, FX’s “Legion” rounded out what was a mostly steady night in the cable ratings by scoring a 0.2 for the second week in a row, and even ticking up slightly from 434,000 total viewers to 456,000 this time around.
