As with last week, it was college football at the top of the Friday cable ratings.

ESPN’s broadcast of the Washington State Cougars playing the Houston Cougars served as the top performance of the night, scoring a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49. This blew past the 0.4 of last week’s big game, when the Marshall Thundering Herd battled the Boise State Broncos. “SportsCenter” grabbed a 0.5 to take second place, and another college football game between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons seized the third slot with a 0.4.

Beyond the top 3, “Love After Lockup” grabbed another consecutive 0.3 for WETV. Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” rose from 0.2 to 0.3, landing beside the consistent “Live PD” clip show on A&E. On HBO, “Real Time with Bill Maher” fell back from 0.3 to 0.2, falling in with consistent performances from both “House Hunters” and “House Hunters International” on HGTV, as well as “BattleBots” on Discovery. Meanwhile, “Ridiculousness” on MTV and “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV returned from 0.3 to 0.2.
