It was an up week in the Tuesday cable ratings for “The Last O.G.” this time around. The Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan-led TBS comedy was able to tick up from its previous 0.4 to a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 with 1.15 million viewers. Once again, though, it was TNT’s live NBA broadcasts that easily scored the top spots of the night, with the Pelicans vs Warriors and Jazz vs Rockets games raking in 1.9 and 1.5s on the network.

Elsewhere, USA’s “WWE Smackdown” took a minor hit this week and fell one-tenth from a 0.8 to a 0.7, while Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” held steady with yet another 0.6. Outside of the top 25, FX’s “Legion” ticked down from its previous 0.2 to a 0.1, with 353,000 viewers.
