TNT’s coverage of the LA Clippers vs Golden State NBA Basketball game landed on top in the Thursday cable ratings this week. Scoring a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, it performed just moderately better than the earlier New York vs Cleveland game, which raked in a 0.8 for itself.

Following its season premiere last week as well, The History Channel’s “Swamp People” fell one-tenth from a 0.6 to a 0.5 on the network. Its viewers were also lower, scoring a 1.9 million total, as opposed to the premiere’s 2.5 million viewers.

Outside of the Top 25, “Nashville” drew a 0.2 on CMT, although it was up slightly in viewers vs. the week before. Meanwhile, USA’s “Colony” managed to rise one tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.3.
