Not having to air against a game seven of the World Series, Friday shows rose week over week. Gold Rush (formerly Gold Rush: Alaska) led the night with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. up 0.3 from last week's season premiere.

Friday Night Smackdown! was up 0.2 to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and Syfy's Sanctuary was up 0.1 with adults 18-49 to a 0.4 rating.

I didn't see any numbers for Starz' Boss and Starz forwards some info, I probably won't see anything until Tuesday.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary source. If you don’t see an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Will add extras that I see later.
