It was the NBA playoffs, yet again, that took the top spots of the night in the Wednesday cable ratings this week. TNT’s broadcast of the 76ers vs Celtics game landed highest with a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 with 5.97 million viewers, while the network’s additional NBA coverage rounded out the top 3 with 1.2 and 0.8s. Additionally, VH1’s “Black Ink Crew” was able to maintain its previous 0.6 for the second week in a row.

Meanwhile, after taking a minor hit the week before, Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City” ticked back up one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.5 this time around. Outside of the top 25, “Krypton” held steady with another 0.2 on SyFy.
