It was even quieter than usual in the Saturday cable ratings this past weekend.

ESPN topped the day’s cable chart with its usual “College GameDay” sports coverage raking in a 0.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 1.75 million viewers. A special airing of “Thor: Ragnarok” gave TBS the chart’s no. 2 spot with a 0.5 rating and a 1.47 million viewer audience.

Rounding out the chart’s top 3, A&E’s “Live PD” grabbed a 0.5, back down one-tenth from the 0.6 that it had scored the previous Saturday.
