Same as last week, it was TNT’s continued coverage of the NBA playoffs that landed on top in the Monday cable ratings this week. The network’s back-to-back live broadcasts of the Thunder vs Jazz and Rockets vs Timberwolves scoring 1.6 and 1.4 ratings in adults 18-49, very similar to what last Monday night’s games had scored. Meanwhile, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” followed closely behind with a 1.1 peak rating across its 3-hour-long broadcast, down three-tenths from its previous 1.4 peak.

In addition, VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” held steady with yet another 1.0, while “Teyana & Iman” ticked up one-tenth from a 0.7 to a 0.8 and “Leave it to Stevie” rose to a 0.6. On MTV, the reunion episode of “Teen Mom” raked in a 0.7, also up one-tenth from its prior episode.

AMC’s “The Terror” scored just outside of the top 25 for the second week in a row as well, despite ticking up just slightly from a 0.2 to a 0.3 this time around, with 923,000 viewers.
