Without any major sports broadcasts on to dominate the night, “Live PD” returned to the top of the Saturday cable ratings this past weekend.

The A&E series led the night with a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.03 million viewers, steady with its broadcast from the previous Saturday. TNT’s airing of “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” came second with a 0.6 as well, while ESPN’s UFC Fight Night preliminaries rounded out the night’s top 3 with a 0.4.

HBO’s premiere broadcast of 2018’s “A Star is Born” landed high with a 0.3 and 1.37 million viewers, beating the network’s more recent movie premieres, including the previous week’s “Bad Times at the El Royale” (0.2, 909,000) premiere.
