CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  On Showtime, the HOMELAND season finale had a healthy 0.18 jump to 0.62 (probably helped by the lack of WALKING DEAD competition), and BILLIONS ticked up to 0.28.  Thinking of AMC, INTO THE BADLANDS plunged 0.76 from last week, when it had the benefit of the giant WALKING DEAD finale lead-in, but the more damaging metric is that it was also down 0.48 from its first airing without WALKING DEAD last season; nevertheless, if it can hold around its current level, it’s in no danger.  BADLANDS was followed by the premiere of TALKING WITH CHRIS HARDWICK, also a victim of no-WALKING DEAD-itis, as its 0.22 was 0.88 below last week’s TALKING DEAD, and COMIC BOOK MEN returned at 0.11.  On E!, THE ARRANGEMENT climbed 0.03 to 0.28, preceded by KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS, which ticked up to 0.62.  Adult Swim’s YOUR PRETTY FACE rose 0.08 to 0.56.  On HBO, LAST WEEK TONIGHT slipped 0.02 to 0.41, GIRLS was down 0.02 to 0.33, and the season finale of CRASHING ticked up to 0.20.  FX’s FEUD dropped 0.07 to 0.28.  Hallmark’s WHEN CALLS THE HEART gained 0.03 to 0.25.  Reelz’s THE KENNEDYS: AFTER CAMELOT miniseries premiered at 0.11. 

Unscripted shows dominated the night, led by Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA, up 0.04 to 1.10, with lead-out REAL HOUSEWIVES OF THE POTOMAC up 0.12 to 0.72.  The first part of ID’s CASEY ANTHONY miniseries debuted at a robust 0.98, with lead-out SCENE OF THE CRIME at 0.52, and lead-in DISAPPEARED up 0.08 to 0.39.  Discovery’s NAKED & AFRAID gained 0.06 to 0.63.  ESPN’s MLB game was at 0.59.  On Food Network, SPRING BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP aired 2 episodes at 0.37/0.36 compared to last week’s 0.34, with lead-in GUY’S GROCERY GAMES up 0.04 to 0.36.  On TLC, LONG LOST FAMILY jumped 0.11 to 0.37, LONG ISLAND MEDIUM was up 0.04 to 0.33, and WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE was also up 0.04 to 0.26.  Spike’s BAR RESCUE fell 0.05 to 0.24.
