“Gold Rush” returned to the top of the Friday cable ratings.

The Discovery Channel series topped its Friday cable competition with a 0.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and a 2.58 million viewer audience, matching its demo rating from the previous Friday. A&E’s “Live PD” placed second in the chart with a 0.5 as well – down a tenth from the 0.6 that it had scored last Friday.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Portland vs. Dallas NBA game rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.4 rating and a 1.12 million viewer audience. It scored considerably lower than the Lakers vs. Mavericks game (0.8, 1.79 million) that gave ESPN the Friday night win the week before.
