This year’s NBA All-Star Game (predictably) ruled over the Sunday cable ratings.

The game’s primary broadcast on TNT raked in a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49 with 5.77 million viewers, down from the 2.8 and 6.45 million viewers that last year’s game raked in. Additionally, a simulcast of the game on TBS posted a 0.4 with 1.03 million viewers.

As a result of the night’s heavier competition, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” fell to second place in the chart, and dropped from its midseason premiere’s 2.0 to a 1.7 with 4.54 million viewers – marking new series lows in both measures for the zombie drama. Its usual “Talking Dead” after show landed lower with a 0.6, down from the 0.8 it had scored the week before.

Elsewhere, HBO’s “True Detective” held steady with its penultimate episode, and posted a 0.3 for the second week in a row. Showtime’s “Shameless” similarly maintained a 0.3, while Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stayed even with another 0.7.
