Yet again, A&E’s “Live PD” landed on top in the Friday cable ratings last week, after ticking up one-tenth from its previous 0.7 to a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, the NFL Network continued its preseason broadcasts with the Pittsburgh Steelers vs New York Giants game landing the second-highest spot of the night with a 0.6. This was on par with the week’s previous preseason games. The later game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers followed closely behind with a 0.5.

After returning last week as well, HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4. On The Disney Channel, however, “Raven’s Home” managed to break its recent ratings downturn, by ticking up from its previous 0.3 to a 0.4. Outside of the Top 25, “Killjoys” held steady with a 0.2 on SyFy.
