It was another fairly quiet edition of the Saturday cable ratings.

ESPN’s preliminary UFC Fight Night coverage scored the night’s top spot with a 0.7 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. The sports network scored the night’s no. 2 spot as well, with some of its college basketball coverage scoring a 0.6. Meanwhile, A&E’s “Live PD” rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.5, matching its rating from the previous Saturday night.

Elsewhere, the HBO premiere broadcast of “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” raked in a 0.3 rating with 1.04 million viewers. Those numbers put it a bit below the 0.4 rating and 1.23 million viewer audience that the “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” premiere broadcast scored on HBO the week before.
