VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” jumped over a few NBA playoff games in the Live +3 ratings for the week of April 17.

The show grew by a modest 0.4 with three days of DVR playback, but since live sports tend to get very little lift from delayed viewing, that was good enough for “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” to move into first place with a 2.0 rating. Game 2 of the Warriors-Blazers playoff series was tops in viewers with 4.04 million.

“Better Call Saul” and “Fargo” more than doubled their total audience in three days. “Saul” also more than doubled its 18-49 rating, going from 0.5 to 1.3.
