The Tuesday cable ratings were not even a contest this week.

TNT absolutely dominated the top slots of the chart, with its highest-performing broadcast being the Houston Rockets battling the Golden State Warriors. The game scored a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49, which was a massive improvement over the 1.3 scored by last week’s top game, in which the Oklahoma City Thunder played the Portland Trail Blazers.

In the second slot, the Boston Celtics were defeated by the Milwaukee Bucks, but the game still picked up a very strong 1.7. “Inside the NBA Playoffs” rounded out the top 3, building on last week’s 0.8 to reach a solid 1.0.

Elsewhere, “Curse of Oak Island” on History Channel rose from the 0.3 it nabbed for a special last week, landing at 0.7. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” on Bravo was close behind with yet another 0.6. USA’s “WWE Smackdown” fell all the way to seventh place, losing two-tenths of a point to arrive at 0.5.

On Discovery, “Deadliest Catch” could not maintain the 0.4 it recovered to last week, relapsing to 0.3, while “Miz & Mrs.” on USA stumbled from 0.4 to 0.3. A pair of “House Hunters” episodes on HGTV remained stable at 0.3, where Food Network’s “Chopped” joined them after a few painful weeks at 0.2.
