It was a fairly quiet Friday night in the cable ratings this past week, leading into the New Year’s holiday. ESPN’s NCAA coverage led the night with the network’s broadcast of the Cotton bowl game between USC and Ohio State, which scored a 2.6 rating in adults 18-49. The earlier bowl game between Kentucky and Northwestern raked in an additional 2.0 on ESPN, with the network’s usual “SportsCenter” broadcasts scoring several other spots throughout the night as well.

After taking a noticeable hit the week before, Lifetime’s “Rap Game” managed to climb back into the Top 25 with a 0.3, two-tenths higher than it’s previous 0.1. Similarly, “Bring It!” also ticked up one-tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.3 on Lifetime. Meanwhile, a special episode of The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” raked in a 0.5 on the network.
