It was a relatively quiet night in the Friday cable ratings last week, compared to many of the sports-heavy nights that had come in the weeks before it. A&E led with “Live PD,” which scored a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 – the same as what it’s last episode had scored. Meanwhile, the NBC Sports Network’s broadcast of the NHL Conference finals game between Washington and Tampa Bay followed closely behind with a 0.5 and 1.35 million total viewers.

HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” rounded out the top 3 of the night and after taking a minor hit the week before, was able to maintain a 0.3 for the second week in a row. The Discovery Channel’s “Bering Sea Gold,” however, ticked up one-tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.3 this time around.
