Once again, it was the NBA at the top of the Friday cable ratings.
ESPN’s broadcast of the Los Angeles Lakers playing the Dallas Mavericks scored a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49, easily winning the night in the demo. It also conquered last week, in which the top score, a 0.7, came from the Lakers playing the Utah Jazz on the same channel. In second place, “SportsCenter 12AM” grabbed a 0.8, and “Gold Rush” of Discovery Channel rocketed back from 0.4 to 0.6 to take the third slot.
Further along, ESPN scored another 0.6 with a matchup between the Houston Rockets and the Brooklyn Nets. A notch below that, “Live PD” on A&E ticked back up from a lapse to 0.4, and returned to 0.5. “Gold Rush: White Water” also seized a 0.4, and WETV’s “Love After Lockup” continued at the 0.3 it rose to last week.
The “Live PD” clip show climbed from 0.2 to 0.3, even as “Black Jesus” held out at 0.3 on Adult Swim. Finally, an episode of “Bubble Guppies” on Nickelodeon posted a 0.2, where both “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO and “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network remained yet again.
