Once again, the NFL Network’s coverage of Thursday night football grabbed the top spot in the cable ratings this week. Following a noticeable increase previously as well, the network’s coverage of the Tampa Bay vs Atlanta game scored a 2.1 rating in adults 18-49, three tenths higher than last week’s 1.8. The pre and post-game specials scored 0.8 and 0.7 ratings also, keeping in line with the same pattern as the previous weeks.

Similarly, TNT’s continued coverage of NBA basketball experienced a major increase, with last night’s game between Oklahoma City and Golden State ticking up from a 0.8 to a 1.7. It was the second-highest rating of the night.
