TNT’s continued NBA playoff coverage easily led the night in the Wednesday cable ratings, yet again this week. The network’s broadcast of the Jazz vs Rockets game scored the top spot with a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49 with 4.31 million viewers, while some additional “Inside the NBA Playoffs” and a pre-game special rounded out the top 3 of the night with 1.0 and 0.6s. In addition, TNT’s “Black Ink Crew” managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6.

On Bravo, “The Real Housewives of New York City,” however, took a minor hit this time around when it fell from a 0.5 to a 0.4 with 1.37 million viewers. Outside of the top 25, SyFy’s “Krypton” maintained a 0.2 rating for the second week in a row.
