Gold Rush was back up the  0.2 adults 18-49 ratings points it lost last week and led Friday cable with a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Stablemate Bering Sea Gold was second with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, up 0.2 from last week.

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.

The list below is long but you can use your browsers "find on page" feature (usually CTRL+F or CMD+F) to search - that's probably the easiest way to find Spartacus: Vengeance (steady vs. last week). I'm on the fence as far as alphabetical sorting rather than sorting by adults 18-49 rating.
