Basketball took center stage on Wednesday, with ESPN’s broadcast of the LA Lakers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers game leading the pack at a 1.4 rating among adults in the 18-49 demographic.  The Oklahoma City Thunder game against the Golden State Warriors followed suit with a 1.2 rating, and ESPN’s tip-off show “NBA Courtside” was close behind with 0.9.  In fact, ESPN held the entire top 7 slots of the night.

Outside sports, it was mostly a case of series maintaining their ratings, even as their ranking was displaced by basketball.  “Forged in Fire” on the History Channel stood its ground at a 0.3, as did “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” on Bravo with 0.4.  “Shattered” on Investigation Discovery shared the same 0.4 rating, also maintaining its spot from the previous week.
