The king of the night was the Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA game on ESPN, which came in with an 0.7 rating with adults 18-49.  This was up a tick from the Celtics vs. Jazz game last week at 0.6.  Despite losing the top slot, A&E’s “Live PD” also rose from 0.6 to 0.7.

On HBO, “Real Time with Bill Maher” fell from 0.4 to 0.3, landing where it had been prior to last week’s increase.  “Gold Rush” stayed even with another 0.6, as the Discovery series managed to hold onto a slot in Friday’s top five.

Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive Ins & Dives” held steady in its rating, but the Food Network series climbed 6 spots in the ranking, closing out the night in the sixteenth slot.
