Fox News’ coverage of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration understandably dominated Friday’s cable ratings. Scoring a peak 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 at noon, it was the network’s highest-rated day since last year’s Election Day.

The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” had a minor dip from its previous 1.1 to a 1.0, whileESPN’s broadcast of the Golden State vs Houston NBA Basketball game landed the network a 0.8 in the night.

On Lifetime, “Bring It!” maintained a 0.4 for the second week in a row following its season premiere last week as “Rap Game” ticked down one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3 on the network.
