Unlike the previous several weeks, there weren’t any major live sports broadcasts on to dominate the Saturday cable ratings from this past weekend. As a result of the night’s quieter-than-usual lineup, it ended up being “Live PD” that rose to the top of the Saturday cable chart.

The A&E series topped the rest of its cable competition with a 0.5 rating in the adults 18-49 demo – matching its rating from the previous Saturday – and a 1.62 million viewer audience. HBO’s premiere broadcast of “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” placed second in the chart with a 0.4 rating and 1.23 million viewers – making it one of HBO’s highest-rated movie premieres in recent months.

ESPN claimed the chart’s following two spots with a postseason edition of “NFL Countdown” (0.3, 968,000) and its broadcast of the college basketball game between Alabama and Kentucky (0.3, 1.12 million).
