After making a comeback last Thursday night, the NBA once again claimed the peak of the cable ratings.
On TNT, the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Oklahoma City Thunder to take home a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was 0.3 lower than when the Houston Rockets played the LA Lakers at the top of last week’s chart. Just beneath it, “Dr. Pimple Popper” on TLC also scored a 0.6, deflating from the 0.7 it had held for two weeks in a row. The top 3 was rounded out by A&E’s prison docuseries “60 Days In” with a score of 0.5, building on its previous 0.4.
Elsewhere, “Swamp People” on History Channel landed yet another 0.3, as did “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network. “Truck Night in America,” also on History, ticked up from 0.2 to 0.3, while “Game of Clones” on MTV and “Flip or Flop Nashville” on HGTV both fell to 0.2 and were pushed off the chart entirely. Bravo’s “Top Chef” told a different story, keeping steady at 0.3.
