A live NBA broadcast put TNT at the top of this week’s Thursday cable ratings.
The network’s broadcast of the Lakers vs. Nets game topped Thursday’s cable shows with a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 and a 1.63 million viewer audience. Meanwhile, the night’s later game between the Mavericks and the Blazers gave ESPN the chart’s no. 3 spot as well, with a 0.5 rating and 1.31 million viewers.
TLC’s “Dr. Pimple Popper” placed second in the chart with a 0.6 rating, matching its rating from a week ago. The same could not, however, be said for TLC’s “My Feet Are Killing Me,” which dropped from its previous 0.6 to a 0.4. Elsewhere, MTV’s “Floribama Shore” (0.4) and A&E’s “The First 48” (0.4) both stayed even week-to-week.
