TBS’ special broadcast of the original three “Star Wars” movies paid off in spades for the network, giving them the top spot of the night in the Friday cable ratings.  “Return of the Jedi” scored the highest out of the three with a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49, while both “Empire Strikes Back” and “A New Hope” also performed well with subsequent 0.8 and 0.7 ratings, respectively.

The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” scored the second-highest rating of the night meanwhile, despite dropping two tenths from its previous 1.0 to a 0.8. ESPN’s coverage of the college football games between Baylor and Texas Tech (0.5) and NC State and North Carolina (0.4) rounded out the rest of the major ratings.
