ESPN’s Friday outing wasn’t as powerful as it had been the previous week, with “Live PD” taking the top slot for A&E at 0.7 in adults 18-49.  Despite having claimed the no. 1 spot, this was actually in-line with recent Friday airings of the police patrol broadcast, with that 0.7 being a holdover from last week.  Just beneath it was “Gold Rush” on Discovery, also at its usual 0.7 rating.

ESPN didn’t get completely boxed out, however.  Its NBA broadcast of the Oklahoma City Thunder playing the Denver Nuggets rounded out the top 3 with a score of 0.5.  This was 0.3 lower than the last week’s big game, which had seen the Warriors facing off against the Bucks.  The NBA also took the fourth slot, with the Philadelphia 76ers vs. Indiana Pacers game landing at 0.4.

Elsewhere, “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network held its 0.3 from last Friday.  MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” fell to 0.3, down one-tenth of a point.  On ESPN, “After the Buzzer” dropped a solid two-tenths of a point to 0.4.
