This week, the Friday cable ratings continued as one of the few strongholds not utterly dominated by sports.

The top event of the night, instead, was “Live PD” on A&E, which scored a 0.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. This was an increase of one-tenth of a point week-to-week, and just enough to keep it ahead of the night’s top NBA game, ESPN’s broadcast of the Golden State Warriors facing off against the Boston Celtics, which also scored a 0.6. “Gold Rush” on Discovery, meanwhile, collapsed from first place and fell to third despite holding out at its previous 0.5.

Beyond the top 3, “Gold Rush: White Water” bounced back from 0.3 to 0.4, while the “Live PD” clip show was the night’s foremost recurring 0.3. WETV’s “Love After Lockup” provided another consistent 0.3, but “Black Jesus” on Adult Swim failed to do the same, slipping from 0.3 to 0.2.

This put it just ahead of “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network, which posted another consecutive 0.2 near the bottom of the chart. The rest of the night’s broadcasting consisted of either sports coverage or political analysis.
