Without the NBA playoffs, it was a much quieter night in the Saturday cable ratings than the past few weeks.

A&E’s “Live PD” took the night’s top spot with a 0.7 rating in adults 18-49, back up one-tenth from the 0.6 it scored last Saturday. Meanwhile, TBS rounded out the night’s top 4 with its special, May the 4th broadcasts of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (0.5), “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (0.4), and “Return of the Jedi” (0.4).

Elsewhere, the NBC sports network’s broadcast of the NHL semi-final game between Colorado and San Jose came fifth in the night with a 0.4 rating and 1.05 million viewers. On HBO, the premiere airing of “The Predator” raked in a 0.3 with 1.01 million viewers.
