Predictably, the Friday cable ratings were dominated by the NBA.

TNT staked its claim on the top two slots of the chart with its playoffs broadcasts, starting with the Toronto Raptors playing the Milwaukee Bucks. The game scored a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49, putting it a full 1.0 beneath the Warriors vs. Rockets game at the top of last week. In second place, “Inside the NBA Playoffs” grabbed a 0.8, while an NHL Conference Final game between the St. Louis Blues and the San Jose Sharks peaked at 0.4.

Beyond the top 3, “Live PD” on A&E tumbled from 0.6 to 0.4 but managed to stay in the top 4, nonetheless. “Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail” on Discovery had yet another outing at 0.3, as did “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV. Over at WETV, “Mama June: From Not to Hot” broke free from three weeks at 0.2 to return to 0.3, a line which others failed to cross.

“Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network continued to struggle at 0.2, once again finding regular company in HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” “Ridiculousness” on MTV, and “Dark Waters” on Discovery.
