A&E’s “Live PD” maintained its position at the top of the Friday cable ratings again last week, despite falling one-tenth from its previous 0.8 to a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 this time around. Meanwhile, HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” followed closely behind with a 0.5. This was one-tenth higher than the 0.4 that the long-running HBO series had scored the week before. After experiencing a minor rise in numbers last week as well, “Raven’s Home” fell from a 0.4 to a 0.3 on The Disney Channel.

The NFL Network continued its preseason football coverage also, with the Minnesota Vikings vs Seattle Seahawks game landing in the Top 5 of the night, after raking in a 0.4 with 1.129 million total viewers. Outside of the Top 25, SyFy’s “Killjoys” maintained its season-long 0.2 ratings streak.
