It was once again “Live PD” at the top of the Friday cable ratings.

The A&E police series took an easy win with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was steady with its leading performance last week, and given that the nearest score was the 0.3 of the “Live PD” clip show, nothing even came close to ending its reign. The clip show also managed to tick up one-tenth of a point from last week’s 0.2, further improving A&E’s night.

For the third slot, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers played the Cleveland Browns for a 0.3, matching with the performance of the Chicago Bears vs. New York Giants game from last week. Nothing else managed to crack 0.3 on Friday night. The strongest performance beyond the top 3 came from “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV at 0.2, where it remained consistent.

Other recurring 0.2’s came from WETV’s “Love After Lockup,” Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives,” Discovery’s “BattleBots,” and MTV’s “Ridiculousness.” HGTV also racked up another pair of 0.2’s from both “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International,” while “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO collapsed from the top 3 when it stumbled from 0.3 to 0.2.
