A&E’s “Live PD” is justifying its 100-episode pickup. The show was once again the top-rated original on cable Saturday among adults 18-49 — by a pretty wide margin.

“Live PD” averaged a 0.7 rating in the demographic over its three-hour running time. That was three tenths of a point better than the two shows that tied for second: HBO’s premiere of “Keeping Up with the Joneses” and “Dragon Ball Z Kai” on Adult Swim.

Hallmark had the biggest total audience of the day with its movie “The Christmas Cure.” It delivered 2.15 million viewers.
