Thursday cable ratings: ‘Dr. Pimple Popper’ tops the night, ‘Floribama Shore’ holds

The Thursday night cable ratings came to a head when TLC’s “Dr. Pimple Popper” ascended to the top of the charts, snatching the first slot away from the NBA.

The reality series rose to a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, building further on the gains that brought it to 0.6 last week. As aforementioned, in second place, the Oklahoma City Thunder played the San Antonio Spurs, taking home a 0.6 rating for TNT. This was a 0.3 decrease in viewership from last week’s top game, in which the Houston Rockets played the Golden State Warriors. Finally, rounding out the top 3 was the Boston Celtics against the Miami Heat on the same network, which rated a 0.5.

Elsewhere, Bravo’s “Top Chef” stumbled from 0.4 down to 0.3, while fellow cooking series “Beat Bobby Flay” on Food Network managed to maintain its 0.3. On MTV, “Floribama Shore” continued treading water at 0.4, and “The First 48 Presents: Homicide Squad Atlanta” premiered on A&E to a 0.3 rating.
