As expected, the various NBA All-Star weekend festivities had a dominant presence over the cable ratings for the week of Feb. 11.

TNT’s broadcast of the “NBA All-Star Game” Sunday night scored the week’s no. 1 spot in both adults 18-49 (2.4) and in total viewers (5.77 million), while the network’s broadcast of the “NBA All-Star Saturday Night” event came second in both measures (2.2, 5.02 million) as well.

TNT grabbed five other spots in the 18-49 top 25 with its additional All-Star weekend coverage and its regular season NBA broadcasts throughout the week. Meanwhile, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” came third in the adults 18-49 demo with a 1.7 – down from its previous 2.0 – and in total viewers with 4.54 million.
