In keeping with its recent trajectory, FX’s “Fargo” fell out of the Top 25 in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, scoring a 0.3 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row. The drop comes just as the series crosses the halfway point in its third season.

In addition, TNT landed on top once again with its continued coverage of the NBA Playoffs. The Cleveland vs Boston game led with a 2.7, while a follow-up “Inside the NBA Playoffs” special grabbed the second-highest spot of the night with a 1.1, also on TNT.

NBC Sports performed well also with its coverage of the Pittsburgh vs Ottawa NHL Conference final game scoring a 0.5. On Bravo, “Real Housewives of New York City” held steady with a 0.5 as well.
