“Live PD” continued to hold the top slot of the Friday cable ratings this week.

The A&E police series remained in the chart’s premiere slot for the second week in a row, posting a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49. This was one-tenth of a point lower than last week, and almost dead even with the score received by ESPN and its broadcast of the Arizona State Sun Devils playing the California Golden Bears. The game on ESPN outperformed the FOX Sports broadcast from last week, in which the Utah Utes battled the USC Trojans for a 0.4, but it was still unable to break past “Live PD.” Another college football game between the Duke Blue Devils and the Virginia Tech Hokies rounded out the top 3, bringing in a 0.3.

Elsewhere, “Real Time with Bill Maher” on HBO rose from a few weeks at 0.2 up to 0.3. This meant that it matched the recurring rating of the “Live PD” clip show, which itself fell from third to eighth place despite maintaining its score. A bit further down, back-to-back episodes of “Ridiculousness” continued at 0.2 on MTV, landing just ahead of Adult Swim’s “Black Jesus.”

On WETV, “Love After Lockup” crumbled from a host of 0.3’s down to 0.2, where Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” held after falling there last week. Finally, at the very bottom of the chart, both “My Lottery Dream Home” on HGTV and “BattleBots” on Discovery maintained their previous 0.2’s yet again.
