If you are using the standard probes that came with the TBS1102, when you attach the probe ground lead to the IC pin 2, you are actually connecting pin 2 to earth ground. If your design is not tying pin 2 to earth ground, then you should consider using a HV differential probe. Such as the P5200A or P5205A.
