Wednesday night was no exception to the ongoing dominance of the NBA playoffs this week.

TNT owned all three top slots of the cable ratings, with the highest performance coming from the Utah Jazz vs. Houston Rockets game. The match picked up a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, a good deal higher than the 0.4 scored by the Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Denver Nuggets last week. Second place went to the Indiana Pacers facing off against the Boston Celtics for a 0.9, while “Inside the NBA Playoffs” scored a 0.6 to round out the top 3.

Last week’s top performer, “The Challenge: War of the Worlds” on MTV, fell back to fourth place despite holding onto its 0.5 rating. “Black Ink Crew” on VH1 wasn’t close behind, despite failing to recover from the 0.4 it slipped to last week. On Bravo, “The Real Housewives of New York City” grabbed another 0.4, while “My 600-lb Life” on TLC fell back from 0.4 to 0.3.

0.3 also remained the consistent domain of “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” on HGTV, along with “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Food Network.
