The Discovery Channel’s annual “Shark Week” broadcasts maintained their consistent presence at the top of the cable ratings yet again this past Friday.

Both “Bloodline: Spawn of Jaws” and “Great White Shark Babies” landed in the top 3 of the night with back-to-back 0.5 ratings in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, it was A&E’s “Live PD” that scored the top spot with a 0.7, the same as its previous episode, with another special clip show lead-in scoring a 0.4 for itself as well. On WETV, “Mama June From Not to Hot” kept its 0.2 streak going yet again.

Outside of the top 25, both “Wynonna Earp” and “Killjoys” raked in a pair of 0.1s on SyFy, even with what their respective premieres had scored the week before.
