Of Note:

  • TNT predictably continued its domination over cable ratings as NBA Playoff season marches on. In back-to-back airings, the network’s broadcasts of the Thunder versus Jazz and Rockets versus Timberwolves games scoring a 1.6 and 1.4 respectively, closely in line with last week’s performance.
  • USA’s WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW followed closely behind, earning a peak 1.1 rating across its 3-hour broadcast, down three tenths from last week, but in line with its performance before Wrestlemania.
  • In unscripted news in cable, LOVE & HIP: ATLANTA continues to post numbers near the top of the list, this week rounding out the top five and holding steady with a 1.0, while other VH1 reality series TEYANA & IMAN climbed a tenth to 0.8 this week, while LEAVE IT TO STEVIE rose to a 0.6.
  • NHL Hockey is beginning to make a showing in the top 25, as quarter final series begin to wrap up. NBC Sports’ coverage of the game between the Capitols and Blue Jackets scored a 0.3 among adults 18-49 and 838,000 viewers.

 

OTHER NEWS:

  • A story that has been going around Hollywood lately is the downfall of NXIVM and its founder Keith Rainere. Originally billed as an empowerment program, in reality was a sex cult made up of female slaves. A docuseries is now in the works from Brian Graden Media in partnership with Sarah Edmondson, a Canadian actress and former member of the society. The show is still being developed, but expected to go out to cable and streaming networks within the next week.
  • It’s finally happened: Nickelodeon is bringing back Double Dare, the iconic game show of trivia, gross physical challenges, and obstacle courses. The original show ran from 1986-1993 and it’s just fun. It’s the show that inspired later iterations of wacky physical challenge shows around the world (Wipeout comes particularly to mind, and Ellen’s Game of Games has elements of this in its stage challenges). I’ll be tracking this one to see how they redevelop this new version.
