Thursday night, the Houston Rockets faced the Golden State Warriors, putting TNT at the top of the cable rankings. The match scored a 0.9 in the 18-49 age group, which was equal to ESPN's broadcast of the Miami Hurricanes, which had been beaten by the Wisconsin Badgers last week. "Surviving R. Kelly", however, was second and third in the evening, making it a rare performance for Lifetime as high on the chart. The 22:03 broadcast also scored 0.9, while at 9 pm she received a 0.8.

Elsewhere, "Dr. Pimple Popper "on TLC reached fifth place by climbing two tenths of a point to 0.6. Bravo's "Top Chef" maintained his gains last week, holding a 0.4. "Floribama Shore" on MTV did the same with its own score of 0.4, although a few niches higher on the chart. "Beat Bobby Flay" on Food Network also resisted 0.3.
