It was a rare week that “Monday Night Raw” was not Monday’s highest performing television broadcast.

Instead, the NBA playoffs on TNT managed to topple “Raw,” with the Brooklyn Nets playing the Philadelphia 76ers to score a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49. This was then matched by the runner-up, in which the Los Angeles Clippers fought off the Golden State Warriors. “Raw” was pushed back to occupying the third through fifth slots, with each hour claiming a 0.9 rating, down from the 1.2 peak of WrestleMania last week.

Beyond the top 5, “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” continued at 0.7 on VH1, while MTV’s “Teen Mom” matched its own previous 0.5. “Vanderpump Rules” on Bravo suffered a minor hit, falling to 0.5 after two weeks at 06, even as “Street Outlaws” on Discovery Channel lifted itself from 0.4 to 0.5. “Spring Baking Championship” on Food Network also stumbled, failing to maintain its usual 0.4 and landing at 0.3.
