Once again, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” scored the top spot in the Friday cable ratings last week with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49, just one-tenth less than its previous 0.9. The special premiere of Hallmark’s original movie, “Finding Santa,” followed closely behind with a 0.7. Meanwhile, ESPN’s broadcast of the Virginia Tech vs Virginia college football game rounded out the Top 3 of the night with a 0.6.

Lifetime’s “Bring It!” returned from its break as well and managed to rake in a 0.3 for itself, slightly less than the 0.4 that its last episode had scored back in April. On A&E, though, “Live PD” managed to hold steady with another 0.6, while The Discovery Channel’s “Finding Escobar’s Millions” fell one-tenth from a 0.4 to a 0.3 this time around.
