For the second week in a row, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” landed the top spot in the Friday cable ratings this time around, ticking up one-tenth from its previous 0.8 to a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. A&E’s “Live PD” followed closely behind with a 0.6, the same as what it has scored in recent weeks. Meanwhile, ESPN’s broadcasts of the Oklahoma City vs San Antonio and New Orleans vs Denver NBA basketball games rounded out the Top 4 of the night with two back-to-back 0.6s on the network.

“Real Time with Bill Maher” took a minor hit, falling two-tenths from a 0.6 to a 0.4 on HBO. In addition, The Discovery Channel’s “Finding Escobar’s Millions” landed fairly high with another 0.4, while Bravo’s “Don’t Be Tardy” also held steady with a 0.4 for the second week in a row.
