With no special Thanksgiving broadcasts to compete with, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” returned comfortably to the top of the Friday cable ratings last week, ticking up two-tenths from a 0.8 to a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. Multiple “25 Days of Christmas” broadcasts on Freeform, meanwhile, followed behind with 0.7s.

ESPN’s coverage of the NBA basketball game between Cleveland and Chicago also scored a 0.7 for the network, while the earlier Houston vs Denver game raked in a lower 0.5.
