Once again, the king of the Friday cable ratings was “Live PD.”
The A&E series captured the top slot of the chart by scoring a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, easily outperforming all of its competition despite falling one-tenth of a point since last week. The “Live PD” clip show was also the second place contender for the night, matching with its previous 0.3. To round out the top 3, “Love After Lockup” of WETV continued its gradual rise from 0.2 to 0.3.
Elsewhere, “Paw Patrol” on Nickelodeon grabbed the final 0.3 for the night, keeping it ahead the consecutive 0.2’s of both “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” on HGTV. Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” posted another 0.2 but fell from the third slot of the chart to the eighth, where “The Unexplained” remained yet again on History.
In fact, holding at 0.2 was a theme for the night, with repeat performances there coming from “Ridiculousness” on MTV, “BattleBots” on Discovery, “Murder Board” on Investigation Discovery, and “Ancient Aliens” on History. At the bottom of the chart, “Ghosts of Morgan City” managed to grip the twenty-fourth slot by ascending from 0.1 to 0.2.
