This week, the NBA continued to hold the top of the Tuesday cable ratings.

TNT scored a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 with its broadcast of the Oklahoma City Thunder once more playing the Portland Trail Blazers. This was a sizable increase even from the 1.1 the two teams rated to take the top of the chart last week. Beneath them, the Brooklyn Nets were defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers, picking up a 0.9 for the night. “Inside the NBA Playoffs” on the same channel rounded out the top 3 with a 0.8.

Beyond TNT’s monopoly on the top of the chart, “WWE Smackdown” on USA Network fell to fourth place despite holding onto the 0.7 it fell to last week. On Bravo, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” also held onto its 0.6, a feat matched by USA’s “Miz & Mrs.” at 0.4.

Discovery’s “Deadliest Catch,” on the other hand, recovered from its slip to 0.3 and returned to 0.4, while “Tosh.0” on Comedy Central finally collapsed from its 0.3 streak to land beside Food Network’s “Chopped” at 0.2.
