Thanks to a live basketball broadcast, TNT rose to the top of the Thursday cable ratings this week.

The network’s broadcast of the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets NBA game led the day’s cable chart with a 0.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and a 1.58 million viewer audience. TLC’s “Dr. Pimple Popper” claimed the chart’s second place spot yet again, despite slipping from its 0.6 last week to a 0.5 this time around.

In its second week, “My Feet Are Killing Me” posted a 0.5 with 2.62 million viewers, down a tick from the 0.6 rating and 2.79 million viewer audience that its series premiere scored last Thursday. Meanwhile, MTV’s “Floribama Shore” maintained a 0.4 rating for the second week in a row, and A&E’s “The First 48” (0.4) similarly held steady week-to-week.
