Thursday night’s cable ratings were dominated by the NBA this week, instead of the NCAA.

The top performance of the night went to the Golden State Warriors playing the LA Lakers with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was much lower than last Thursday’s biggest game, in which the Perdue Boilermakers duked it out against the Tennessee Volunteers for a 1.4.

In second place, the Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers game brought in a 0.5. This was also outranked by last week’s second place game, when the Oregon Ducks played the Virginia Cavaliers for a 1.2. Rounding out the top 3 was “Ex on the Beach” and the second part of its reunion show on MTV, bringing in a 0.4.

As for the rest of the chart, “Impractical Jokers” downgraded from 0.3 to 0.2 on TRUTV, putting it below its usual rivals, such as “House Hunters” on HGTV, which can always be counted on to bring in a 0.3. “Swamp People” on History and “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network also occupied their normal spot in the 0.3 lane.
