This week, the NBA failed to capture the top slot of the Friday cable ratings.

Instead, it was “Gold Rush” on Discovery in the chart’s premiere slot, posting a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49. This was an improvement over last week, when it only rose as high as the third slot, even though this week it fell from 0.6 to 0.5. In second place, “Live PD” on A&E was steadfast at an additional 0.5, while “Gold Rush: White Water” took the third as it fell from 0.4 to 0.3.

ESPN and the NBA were relegated to fourth place this week, as the Cleveland Cavaliers played the Washington Wizards for a 0.3. This obviously compared poorly with last week’s top game, when the Lakers played the Mavericks for a 1.1. On WETV, “Love After Lockup” posted a consistent 0.3, as did both “Black Jesus” on Adult Swim and the “Live PD” clip show on A&E.

Further along, “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network was steady at 0.2, keeping just ahead of “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO. The same was true of “In Search Of” on History, along with “What You Get For Your Money” on HGTV. “Ridiculousness” also provided an unsurprising 0.2 for MTV.
