This week, Friday’s cable ratings were topped by the Masters Golf Tournament.

The ESPN broadcast of the tournament was able to take the peak of the chart by scoring a 0.6 ratings in adults 18-49. The tournament also managed to claim the second slot of the chart by holding its audience and picking up a consecutive 0.6. This meant that last week’s champion, A&E’s “Live PD,” was pushed back to third place when it lost one-tenth of a point and sank to its own 0.6.

Outside the top 3, “Gold Rush: Parker’s Trail” on Discovery Channel descended from 0.4 to 0.3. HGTV’s “My Lottery Dream Home” aired a special at 0.3 which was consistent with the show’s regular performance, while A&E’s “Live PD AC” remained at 0.3.

WETV’s “Mama June: From Not to Hot” recovered to 0.3 from the 0.2 it had been stuck at for a few weeks, matching the performance of “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network. “Ridiculousness” on MTV once again failed to pull above 0.2, the same rating as “In Plain Sight” on Investigation Discovery.
