The spat of slow Fridays in the cable ratings continued this week, although it wouldn’t be obvious just from looking at “Live PD.”

The A&E police series was the easy champion of Friday night, drawing a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49. This was a significant improvement over the 0.2 its clip show scored last week, and put it out ahead of “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout” on Nickelodeon at 0.4. Tennis and the Men’s Semi-Final at Wimbledon rounded out the top 3 by grabbing a 0.3. This was even with the competition’s performance last year, attracting about 1.39 million viewers compared to its previous 1.10 million.

Elsewhere, “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” brought home a pair of 0.2’s for Food Network, as did “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” for HGTV. None of these broadcasts deviated from the scores they picked up last week. “Ridiculousness” on MTV and “BattleBots” on Discovery also remained at 0.2. Fellow Discovery series “Savage Builds” ticked up, however, rising from 0.1 to 0.2, running alongside the 0.2’s collected by “T.O.T.S.” and “Andi Mack” on Disney Channel.
