Friday Cable Ratings: ‘Gold Rush’ on Top Again, ‘SmackDown’, ‘Bering Sea Gold’ Round out Original Programming

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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 was once again the number one original cable show on Friday night with a 1.0 Adults 18-49 rating. Friday Night Smackdown came in second with a 0.9, and Bering Sea Gold rounded out the top three with a 0.9.

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 for adults 25-54.

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 House of Payne.
