Top 100 Primetime Cable: May 15 - 214, 2017

The NBA Conference Finals dominate this week's cable ratings, taking the top six spots, plus the #7 spot for the NBA Draft Lottery show. Four games drew over 6.3 million viewers, with Sunday's Boston vs Cleveland game grabbing seven million.

MSNBC tops FOX News for the very first time, with the RACHEL MADDOW SHOW pushing all five of its shows into the top 20, with just three shows for FOX News' TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.

For scripted originals, IF LOVING YOU IS WRONG (#74) was the most watched, with 1.8 million viewers. THE GOOD WITCH was right behind it, at #75. The much hyped premiere of Showtime's reboot of TWIN PEAKS, debuted to a very soft 510,000 viewers and 0.15 rating in Adults 18-49. Considering how bad of a tasted the last season of TWIN PEAKS gave viewers, back in 1990-91, a half million viewer premiere is not surprising at all.
