Fox Sports held onto the top spot of the Friday cable ratings last week, with its broadcast of game 6 between the Brewers and the Dodgers scoring a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.78 million viewers.

It was the night’s only broadcast to cross the 1.0 barrier, as ESPN’s broadcast of the Golden State vs. Utah NBA game came second with a 0.9 and 2.27 million viewers. The network’s broadcast of the earlier Boston vs. Toronto game rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.8.

Elsewhere, the Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” matched its season premiere with another 0.6, while A&E’s “Live PD” managed to tick back up from its previous 0.5 to a 0.6. HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” maintained a 0.3 for the third week in a row.
