The evening of Martin Luther King Jr. Day saw a close fight for the top spot, although ultimately TNT’s broadcast of the Golden State Warriors playing the LA Lakers won the night. The NBA game took home a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic, improving on the top performance of last week by one-tenth. Meanwhile, “Monday Night Raw” on USA fell to second place, but managed to improve their score by one-tenth as well, meaning the WWE broadcast also rose to 1.0 for its 8 p.m. airing. The 9 p.m. slot for “Monday Night Raw” took the third spot just a notch below at 0.9.

Outside the top 3, VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop” held onto recent gains for the second week in a row at 0.7. On the same network, “Cartel Crew” slipped from 0.5 to 0.4, failing in its third week to match its premiere. “Kid’s Baking Championship” on Food Network, however, actually did manage to keep abreast of its premiere rating, staying rock-solid at 0.5 for its third episode.
