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.
