The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” held steady in the Friday cable ratings last week, once again, scoring the top spot of the night. After taking a hit in the week prior, it maintained a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, with 3.42 million viewers tuning in throughout the episode. ESPN’s broadcast of the NBA All-Star Event followed closely behind with a 0.7. The network’s “Rising Stars” edition of the event scored a 0.6 later on in the night as well.

HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which aired its highly-publicized face off between Maher and Milo Yiannopoulos, ticked up one-tenth from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6. Meanwhile, The Discovery Channel’s “The Wheel” took a minor hit, falling from a 0.5 to a 0.3.

On Lifetime, both “Rap Game” and “Bring It!” maintained their almost season-long 0.4 streak.
