TBS landed on top in the Friday cable ratings last week, with its coverage of the MLB division series games. The network’s broadcast of the Cubs vs Nationals game led with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.495 million total viewers. Meanwhile, the later game between the Dodgers and Cubs followed closely behind also with a 0.9, but with slightly fewer viewers. MLB Network rounded out the Top 3 of the night with its Yankees vs Cleveland broadcast scoring a 0.9

On A&E, “Live PD” returned from its hiatus and raked in a 0.6, which is fairly in line with its previous ratings. In addition, Disney Channel’s “Raven’s Home” managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 0.2 to a 0.3 this time around. HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” experienced a similar increase, rising from a 0.4 to a 0.5 on the network.
