A&E’s “Live PD” rose back to the top of the Friday cable ratings this week, down a tenth from its previous 0.7 to a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49.

A special “Live PD” clip-show acted as a lead-in to the new episode, and scored a 0.3 on the network. Meanwhile, HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” returned from over a month-long break even with another 0.3 and 1.44 million viewers.  On WETV, “Mama June From Not to Hot” ticked up one-tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.3 this time around.

Outside of the top 25, SyFy’s “Wynonna Earp” maintained its previous 0.1. “Killjoys” just barely held steady with another 0.1 as well, and fell noticeably in total viewers from 431,000 to 369,000.
