Once again, “Live PD” found itself entirely boxed out of the top 3 slots of the Friday cable ratings.

The top performer of the night came from ESPN 2 instead, as the Marshall Thundering Herd played the Boise State Broncos in NCAA football. The game scored a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49, leading its competition for the night but not quite matching the Badgers vs. Bulls game from last week. In second place was the Men’s Semifinal in the 2019 US Open Tennis Championships with a 0.3, while a TUDN broadcast of the Men’s Mexico vs. USA soccer game took another 0.3 to round out the top 3.

WETV’s “Love After Lockup” led the pack beyond the upper echelon of the chart, having risen from 0.2 to 0.3. A&E and its “Live PD” clip show followed behind, having risen by the same measure, a feat it shared with both MTV’s “Ridiculousness” and HGTV’s “My Lottery Dream Home.” On HBO, “Real Time with Bill Maher” was also up to 0.3, after having posted a 0.2 two weeks ago.

“House Hunters” was king among 0.2’s, remaining there beside “House Hunters International” on the same network, “Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives” on Food Network, and “The Unexplained” on History Channel. “Ancient Aliens” fought its way back to 0.2 after weeks at 0.1, with other performances matching that trajectory coming from “BattleBots” on Discovery and “Murder Board” on Investigation Discovery.
