College basketball once again took over the top ranks of the Thursday cable ratings.

TBS laid claim to all three of the top slots, with the biggest match of the night being the Perdue Boilermakers vs. the Tennessee Volunteers. The game scored a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49, up 0.3 from the Florida Gators vs. Nevada Wolfpack that topped the chart previously. In second place, the Oregon Ducks played the Virginia Cavaliers to bring in a 1.2, while the pre-game show for the same game scored a 1.1.

Outside of basketball, “Impractical Jokers” on TBS debuted a new season at its usual 0.3 rating, the same score “Swamp People” on History Channel lands at week after week. The same could be said of “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network. “Caribbean Life” on HGTV also began a new season at 0.3, while “House Hunters International” sank from 0.3 to 0.2.
