Once again, “WWE Smackdown” was usurped from the top slot of Tuesday’s cable ratings.

The champion this week was the NBA, with a playoff game between the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Portland Trail Blazers racking up a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49.  This was a significant improvement on last week’s top game, in which the Thunder played the Houston Rockets for 0.6. TNT and the NBA also claimed second place when the Orlando Magic was defeated by the Toronto Raptors to grab a 0.9.  USA’s “Smackdown” was relegated to the third slot with a 0.7, down from last week’s 0.8.

Elsewhere on the chart, “The Curse of Oak Island” on History Channel remained at 0.7 yet again, while “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” followed close behind with another 0.6.  On USA, “Miz & Mrs.” continued to run with the 0.4 it premiered at, unlike “Deadliest Catch” on Discovery, which fell from 0.4 to 0.3 in its second week.  Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0” remained at 0.3, but “Chopped” on Food Network lost one-tenth of a point and fell to 0.2.  “House Hunters” on HGTV also took a tumble, falling from 0.3 to 0.2.
