The final night of May made for a strong outing for “Live PD.”
The A&E police series topped the Friday cable ratings, capturing both the first and second slots. The new episode at 9 p.m. grabbed a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49, while its lead-in managed to score a 0.4. Last week, the series had claimed the first slot despite peaking at 0.4. “Mama June: From Not to Hot” of WETV took to third place with a 0.3, matching the performance that held it at fourth place last week.
Farther along the chart, “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV remained at the same 0.3 it picked up two weeks ago, while “Real Time with Bill Maher” of HBO edged up from 0.2 to 0.3. On History, “Ancient Aliens” built on its previous 0.2 to reach 0.3, while “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network fell from 0.3 to 0.2.
“Ridiculousness” of MTV slipped from 0.3 to 0.2, even as “Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell” maintained its 0.2 on Adult Swim. WETV’s “Love After Lockup: Florida” kept to a 0.2 as well. Finally, after 13 years, HBO’s “Deadwood” returned to the charts with a movie at 0.2, bringing the Western’s long-unfinished story to a close.
