Friday Cable Ratings: ‘Gold Rush’ Wins Again + ‘Smackdown,’ ‘Sanctuary,’ ‘For Better or Worse’ & 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This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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 again led Friday cable down a tenth vs last week to  a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Tyler Perry’s ‘For Better or Worse‘ was steady in one of its episodes and up a tenth in the other with 0.9 and 1.0 adults 18-49 ratings respectively.

Flying Wild Alaska was down a tenth vs. last week with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Friday Night Smackdown scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and Sanctuary a 0.4 rating (comparisons to last Friday not valid since last Friday was repeats of special Tuesday night airings).

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.
