This week, there was nothing that could topple “Dr. Pimple Popper.”

The TLC series roared back to the top slot by scoring a 0.8 in adults 18-49, building on the 0.6 it scored last week. Neither of the night’s NBA games were able to defeat it. In second place, TNT aired an Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Portland Trail Blazers match to pick up a 0.6, matching last week’s top game in which the Thunder played the Philadelphia 76ers. The top 3 was rounded out by the Indiana Pacers vs. Milwaukee Bucks at 0.5.

Further along, “60 Days In” couldn’t keep A&E in the top 3 but did manage to hold onto a 0.5, while back-to-back episodes of “The First 48” on the same network matched their own 0.4’s. MTV’s “Ex on the Beach” remained at 0.3, a feat it shared with “Swamp People” on History Channel and “Top Chef” on Bravo. HGTV’s “Flip or Flop Nashville” couldn’t pull above its 0.2 from last week, but it did manage to get back on the chart in the twenty-fifth slot. “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network also clung to its usual 0.3.
