Without any major NBA events to compete with, college basketball easily returned to the top of the Saturday cable ratings this past weekend.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Duke vs. Syracuse game won the night’s no. 1 spot with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.98 million viewers – scoring three-tenths higher in the demo than any of the night’s other broadcasts. The network’s coverage of the earlier game between Tennessee and LSU landed third in the chart with a 0.5 and 1.45 million viewers.

On A&E, “Live PD” came second in the night, and scored the same 0.6 that it had the previous Saturday, while another broadcast of “Deadpool 2” on HBO came seventh with a 0.3 and 703,000 viewers.
