Without any major sports broadcasts on to beat it, The Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” landed the top spot of the night in the Friday cable ratings last week. The series raked in a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49 on the network, down just one-tenth from its previous 0.8. Meanwhile, A&E’s “Live PD” landed second-highest in the night and managed to tick up one-tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.6 this time around.

Additionally, ESPN’s broadcast of the Florida State vs Boston College football game rounded out the Top 3 with a 0.4, while “Real Time with Bill Maher” held steady and maintained a 0.4 for the second week in a row on HBO. Several late-night “SportsCenter” broadcasts by ESPN also landed within the Top 25 with 0.3 – 0.2 ratings.
