It was a relatively quiet night in the Friday cable ratings last week. Despite continuing to land on top, however, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” did experience a minor drop, falling from its previous 1.1 to a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49. But once again, it was the only program of the night to reach the 1.0 barrier.
The Discovery Channel landed near the top of the night another time as well, with “The Wheel” scoring a 0.5 for the network.
HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” came in second with a 0.5, while ESPN’s weekly NBA basketball coverage continued to pay off for the network, raking in two 0.5 and 0.4 ratings throughout the night, respectively.
On Lifetime, both “Rap Game” and “Bring It!” managed to maintain the 0.4 streak that they’ve carried throughout a majority of their current seasons.
