For the second week in a row, it was “Live PD” that captured the top spot in the Friday cable ratings. The A&E series scored a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, down just one-tenth from its previous 0.7. A late-night edition of ESPN’s “SportsCenter” followed behind with a 0.4, while an “NBA Pre-Game” special scored an additional 0.3 on the network later on in the night as well.

CNN’s “Remembering Anthony Bourdain” tribute special landed in the top 5 of the night with a 0.3 and 1.40 million viewers, following the chef and TV host’s tragic passing last week. Meanwhile, “Real Time with Bill Maher” took a minor hit this time around, and fell one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3. On the Discovery Channel, both “Bering Sea Gold” and “Battlebots” held steady with 0.2s.
