Once again, ESPN’s coverage of the NBA regular season landed on top in the Friday cable ratings this week. The network’s NBA broadcasts scored the top 0.8 ratings in adults 18-49, with 1.938 and 1.941 million viewers each. Several of the network’s post-game, late-night “SportsCenter” broadcasts scored several other spots throughout the night as well with 0.4 and 0.3 ratings. On A&E, “Live PD” also landed fairly high in the night and raked in a 0.6, the same as what it had scored the week before.

Meanwhile, “Gold Rush” followed closely behind and rounded out the Top 3 of the night with a 0.7 on The Discovery Channel, just one-tenth less than its previous 0.8. Additionally, both “Bring It!” and “Rap Game” managed to maintain their previous 0.3s on Lifetime.
