Like it did last week, the NBA playoffs landed firmly at the top of the Wednesday cable ratings this week, starting with TNT’s live broadcast of the Pacers vs Cavaliers game, which scored a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49. The network’s broadcast of the later game between the Timberwolves and the Rockets followed closely behind with a 1.5 and 3.46 million viewers. Meanwhile, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” was able to maintain its previous 0.5 for the third week in a row.

On Bravo, “The Real Housewives of New York City” similarly held steady with another 0.5, while SyFy’s “Krypton” fell outside of the top 50 this week with a 0.2 rating – one-tenth less than the 0.3 it had scored the week before – and 597,000 viewers.
