For the second week in a row, it was A&E’s “Live PD” that led the Friday cable ratings.
After making its return the previous week, “Live PD” held onto the no. 1 spot of the night with a 0.6 rating in the adults 18-49, even with what it had scored the Friday before. Fox News led cable news for the night, as “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” raked in a 0.5 with 4.12 million viewers. HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” meanwhile, managed to tick up one-tenth from a 0.3 to a 0.4.
Outside of the top 25, the 2-part season 3 finale of “Wynonna Earp” maintained its season-long 0.1 streak yet again, despite being down slightly in total viewers from 460,000 to 389,000 and 339,000 this time around.
