With its season finale episode, “The Terror” closed out its first season in steady fashion. The AMC horror series raked in a 0.2 rating in adults 18-49 in the Monday cable ratings this week, the same as what it had scored with its previous few episodes. Meanwhile, after ticking up just slightly last week, USA’s “WWE Monday Night Raw” fell back down one-tenth from a 1.0 to a 0.9 peak rating across its 3-hour-long broadcast.

Similar to last week, the NBA conference finals held onto their place atop the ratings yet again, as ESPN’s live broadcast of the Boston vs Cleveland game scored the top spot of the night with a 3.1 and 7.78 million viewers. On VH1, “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” maintained its previous 1.0 for the third week in a row.

Following its season premiere last week as well, Bravo’s “Basketball Wives” fell one-tenth from a 0.9 to a 0.8 this time around.
