Once again, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” reigned over the rest of the programs in the Friday cable ratings this week. The series managed to tick up one-tenth from its previous 1.0 to a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49, and was the only show to break that 1.0 barrier throughout the night. HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” maintained a 0.5 for the third week in a row as well.

On Lifetime, “Rap Game” held steady with its season-long 0.4, while “Bring It!” dipped one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3 on the network. The Discovery Channel’s “The Wheel” scored a 0.4 for the second week in a row. Meanwhile, following its series premiere last week, “Mama June: From Not to Hot” fell from a 0.5 to a 0.4 on WETV.
