Despite there being several live sports broadcasts throughout the day, “Live PD” maintained its hold over the Saturday cable ratings yet again last week.
The A&E series led the ratings with a 0.7 in adults 18-49, the same as what it had scored the week before, and 2.08 million viewers. Meanwhile, the NFL Network’s broadcast of the preseason game between the Steelers and the Titans came in second with a 0.4, in line with how the network’s other preseason coverage has been performing this year.
The network’s broadcast of the earlier game between Kansas City and Chicago landed a little lower in the top 25, scoring a 0.3 with 994,000 viewers. On HBO, the premiere broadcast of “Father Figures” grabbed a 0.3, up one-tenth from the 0.2 that the “Darkest Hour” premiere had scored the week before.
Outside of the top 25, the Disney Channel’s “Big Hero 6: The TV Series” fell back down a tenth from a 0.2 to a 0.1.
