Unlike previous weeks, The Weather Channel dominated over the Friday cable ratings this week with its live coverage of Hurricane Harvey. Not only did the network’s coverage score the top 3 spots of the night with 0.6 – 0.5 ratings in adults 18-49, but raked in multiple other spots throughout the Top 25 as well. Meanwhile, A&E’s “Live PD: Police Patrol” scored a 0.4 on the network.

Despite taking a hit last week, “Raven’s Home” held steady with a 0.3 on The Disney Channel. Similarly, “Killjoys” stayed out of the Top 25 once again, but managed to maintain 0.2 for yet another week in a row.
