It was a fairly quiet night in the Thursday cable ratings this week. Once again, TNT grabbed the top two spots with its continued NBA basketball coverage. The network’s broadcast of the Cavaliers vs Raptors game led with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, while the later game between the Spurs and the Lakers followed closely behind with a 0.7 as well. MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” meanwhile, rounded out the Top 3 of the night with a 0.5.

In addition, “The First 48” managed to hold steady and maintain its previous 0.4 rating for the second week in a row on A&E. Unfortunately, USA’s “Damnation” not only stayed outside of the Top 25 again this week, but also took a minor hit and fell one-tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.1.
