“Live PD” continued its streak of solid ratings Saturday, once again leading the day’s original cable programming among adults 18-49.

The show scored a 0.7 rating for A&E, a tenth of a point ahead of an NFL preseason game (Cowboys-Rams) on the NFL Network. Hallmark’s movie “Summer in the Vineyard” was Saturday’s most-watched original with 2.05 million viewers.

CNN occupied several spots in the top 25 with coverage of the white nationalist rally and subsequent violence in Charlottesville, Va.
