Without any MLB coverage to compete against, the Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” graduated to the top spot in the Friday cable ratings last week with a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49. That was one tenth higher than its Season 7 premiere, which raked in a 0.8 at the time, though a special episode also grabbed a 0.5 for the network on Friday as well.

In sports, ESPN’s broadcast of the NCAA football game between Oregon and California scored 0.5, while Adult Swim’s “The Eric Andre Show” dipped one tenth from its previous 0.6 to a 0.5.
