It was a relatively quiet night in the Friday cable ratings last week. A&E won the top spot with “Live PD,” which scored a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 with 2.04 million viewers. Meanwhile, HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” scored the second-highest spot of the night with a 0.4, which despite a week off in between episodes, was the same as the previous “Maher” broadcast. After taking a hit last week on the Discovery Channel, “Bering Sea Gold” managed to score a 0.2 for the second week in a row.

It was the same story for “Battlebots” as well, which also maintained a 0.2 yet again, with 1.01 million viewers. Outside of the top 25, though, the series premiere of Cinemax’s “C.B. Strike” barely landed a spot in the top 150 of the night with a 0.03 – even with J.K. Rowling’s name attached to it.
