Friday Cable Ratings: Discovery’s ‘Gold Rush’, UNC/MSU BBall Top Cable + ‘Friday Night Smackdown,’ ‘Sanctuary,’ ‘Flying Wild Alaska’ & More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

 

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.
