TBS held onto the top spot of the night in the Saturday cable ratings last week, with its broadcast of the ALCS baseball game between the Red Sox and the Astros scoring a 1.5 with 5.82 million viewers. The network’s additional post-game “Inside the MLB” special (0.5) and its pregame lead-in (0.3) landed lower in the top 25.

ESPN took the second and third spots of the night though, with its broadcasts of the Missouri vs. Alabama (1.1, 3.76 million) and Florida vs. Vanderbilt (0.8, 2.50 million) NCAA football games.

Outside of sports, A&E’s “Live PD” posted a 0.5, even with what it had scored the Saturday before.
