For the third consecutive night this week, TNT’s coverage of the NBA Playoff games led the night in the Wednesday cable ratings, scoring 1.7 and 1.6 ratings in adults 18-49. VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” followed closely behind with a 0.6, just one-tenth lower than the 0.7 it scored in the previous week. Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York City” managed to tick up, however, from a 0.4 to a 0.5.

With its season three premiere as well, FX’s “Fargo” scored a 0.4, one-tenth lower than the 0.5 its season 2 premiere grabbed back in 2015. All in all, though, this is fairly on par with the second season’s numbers. OWN’s “Greenleaf” held steady with a 0.3 for the third week in a row. Meanwhile, SyFy’s “The Magicians” maintained a 0.3 once again.

Outside of the Top 25, “Underground” ticked up one-tenth from a 0.1 to a 0.2 on WGN America.
