It was a sports-heavy night in the Thursday cable ratings. ESPN’s college basketball coverage, for instance, grabbed the top spot with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, the only program of the night to reach the 1.0 barrier. Meanwhile, the network also scored a 0.6 for a later game at 10:03 PM.

Similarly, TNT’s broadcast of the Cavaliers vs. Thunder game followed closely behind, raking in a 0.8 in the night. The network’s coverage of the later game between the Celtics and the Blazers (0.6) put it near the top as well.

Landing outside of the Top 25, CMT’s “Nashville” continued to maintain its 0.2 on the network, dropping just slightly from its previous 750,000 viewers to 771,000. USA’s “Colony” maintained a 0.3 for the second week in a row.
