In the Friday cable ratings this week, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” scored the top spot once again, maintaining a 1.0 in adults 18-49 for the reality series. This marks yet another positive development for the network’s beloved mainstay, which has been enjoying a near-constant spot at the top of the Thursday cable ratings since it’s last season premiere.

Meanwhile, “Treasure Quest: Snake Island” landed near the top of the night also, with a 0.6. Multiple “Big Bang Theory” and “Family Guy” reruns raked in the biggest numbers of the night.
