Friday Cable Ratings: ‘Gold Rush’ More Golden + ‘Smackdown,’ ‘Sanctuary,’ ‘For Better or Worse’ & More
Gold Rush again led Friday cable and was up sharply (0.3 points) vs. last week to a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. It crushed the motley assortment of repeats and regular broadcast shows on the night.
Tyler Perry’s ‘For Better or Worse‘ matched last week’s ratings with 0.9 and 1.0 adults 18-49 ratings respectively.
Flying Wild Alaska was up two tenths vs. last week with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
Friday Night Smackdown scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from last week.
Sanctuary had a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from last week.
Updates (via our friend @TVBill):
- Life and Times of Tim: 82K viewers and the dreaded 0.0 adults 18-49 rating
- Christmas in Washington: 1.509m viewers and a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating
- Brides of Beverly Hills – both episodes had 0.4 A18-49 ratings and 1.169m and 1.227m viewers for the respective 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.
