One basketball tournament was traded for another as the ACC replaced the NBA on Friday, bringing ESPN to the forefront of the night’s cable ratings.

The top game featured the Duke Blue Devils playing the North Carolina Tar Heels to score a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49. This was a massive improvement over last week’s top NBA game, in which the Denver Nuggets battled the Golden State Warriors for a 0.8. “College Basketball Scoreboard” followed behind the Devils vs. Tar Heels for a 1.0, and “Gold Rush” took the third slot with a 0.6, down from its previous 0.7.

Elsewhere on the chart, “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV raked in a 0.3, consistent with its usual score. “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO also held onto a 0.3, along with Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.” A new season of “Mama June: From Not to Hot” debuted on WETV with a 0.2, the same score “Secrets of the Morgue” on Investigation Discovery managed to remain at.
