It was “Live PD” that topped last week’s Friday cable ratings.

The A&E series beat its cable competition in the adults 18-49 demo with a 0.6 rating, up one-tenth from the 0.5 that its previous Friday broadcast scored. The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush: White Water” (0.5) followed closely behind “Live PD” in the Friday chart, after similarly ticking up one-tenth from its last outing.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Clippers vs. Heat NBA game rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.4 rating and a 1.08 million viewer audience. Those numbers put it on par with the Portland vs. Dallas game from the week before, which also landed ESPN in that Friday’s top 3.
