With the return of the NBA, there is room for little else at the top of the cable ratings.

So it was for Thursday night, with TNT’s broadcast of the Los Angeles Clippers playing the Golden State Warriors for a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. Second place was similarly procured by TNT, as the Milwaukee Bucks battled the Houston Rockets for an additional 0.8. While these scores dominated this week’s cable ratings, they left a bit to be desired compared to the Astros vs. Yankees MLB game which brought FOX Sports a 1.5 last week. Finally, in third place, the Washington Redskins duked it out with the Minnesota Vikings on the NFL Network for a 0.7.

At its usual spot in the fourth slot, MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” dipped from the 0.7 it rose to previously, returning to 0.6. HGTV’s “Flip or Flop” was a steadfast 0.3, posting the same score as back-to-back episodes of “Live PD Presents: PD Cam.” The other MTV entry, “Ex on the Beach,” had a return to 0.3 after several weeks at 0.2 with its season 3 reunion episode. On USA, “Chrisley Knows Best” stumbled from 0.3 to 0.2, matching ranks with “Temptation Island” on the same network, and TBS’ “Conan” posted an unsurprising 0.2.
