ESPN kept a firm hold over the Saturday cable ratings this past weekend.

The network’s broadcast of the Texas A&M vs. LSU college football game topped the night with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.95 million viewers, which puts it on par with the Arkansas vs. LSU game that won the previous Saturday’s cable chart. ESPN grabbed the night’s no. 2 spot as well, with its usual “College GameDay” coverage (0.7, 2.19 million).

A&E’s “Live PD” rounded out the chart’s top 3 with a 0.6 rating, up one-tenth from the 0.5 its last Saturday broadcast scored. Meanwhile, HBO’s premiere broadcast of “Shazam!” landed in the night’s top 25 with a 0.3 and 1.06 million viewers.
