TLC claimed the top two spots in this week’s Thursday cable ratings.

The network’s “Dr. Pimple Popper” led the Thursday cable chart with a 0.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo, up one-tenth from its 0.5 rating a week ago. It was followed closely behind by “My Feet Are Killing Me,” which also managed to tick up from a 0.5 to a 0.6.

TNT’s broadcast of the Celtics vs. Bucks NBA game rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.5 rating and a 1.28 million viewer audience. Elsewhere, MTV’s “Floribama Shore” held steady with yet another 0.4, as did A&E’s “The First 48” (0.4).
