Gold Rush (formerly Gold Rush: Alaska) again led the cable night with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. even with last week. However this week it was tied in the adults 18-49 rating by ESPN's UNC v. Michigan St. college basketball game (played on the deck of a US aircraft carrier).

Flying Wild Alaska kept things going for the Discovery Alaskans with a 08 adults 18-49 rating.

Friday Night Smackdown! was even with last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and Syfy's Sanctuary was also even with last week at a 0.4 adults 18-49.

I didn't see any numbers for Starz' Boss and unless 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.
