Thursday night’s cable ratings were, as per usual, dominated by the NBA.

Turner Network Television’s broadcast of the Philadelphia 76ers defeating the Golden State Warriors was the top game of the night, seizing the first slot with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. This was two-tenths of a point higher than the top game from last week, where the Minnesota Timberwolves played the LA Lakers.

Just beneath it, “Dr. Pimple Popper” was the sole non-sports entry to infiltrate the top 5, scoring a strong 0.8. This was up from the 0.6 it rated last week. In third place, the Toronto Raptors faced down the Milwaukee Bucks for a 0.5, ticking down 0.1 compared to the Wizards vs. Warriors game which occupied last week’s third slot.

Elsewhere, “Floribama Shore” on MTV managed to reclaim its normal 0.4, up from 0.3, while A&E’s “The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta” remained at the 0.3 it fell to last week. “Top Chef” on Bravo also stayed put at 0.3.
