The pecking order for cable ratings held true on Thursday, for the most part.

It should surprise nobody that the NBA was on top, with the Minnesota Timberwolves playing the LA Lakers on Turner Network Television to take a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. This was a decrease of one-tenth of a point in comparison to last week’s top game, where the Lakers faced off against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In the subsequent slot, “Dr. Pimple Popper” from TLC received a 0.6 rating, meaning that although it maintained its place on the chart, it also lost 0.1 of its viewership. Third place was filled out by the Golden State Warriors defeating the Washington Wizards to score a 0.6 for TNT.

Around the rest of the chart, “Floribama Shore” on MTV ended its long run at 0.4, sinking one-tenth of a point to 0.3. A&E’s “The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta” stumbled back from its gains last week to the 0.3 it premiered at, while “Top Chef” on Bravo remained trapped at the same rating. There was some movement in the food world, however; Food Network’s “Beat Bobby Flay” managed to climb to the fifth slot by increasing its viewership from 0.3 to 0.4.
