Friday cable ratings: ‘Gold Rush’ holds steady

Once again, the Discovery Channel’s “Gold Rush” continued its reign over the rest of the programs in the Friday cable ratings last week, scoring a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 for the second week in a row. It was the only show to break through the 1.0 barrier that night, as several “Big Bang Theory” and “Family Guy” reruns followed behind with 0.7s on TBS and Adult Swim.

Rounding out the major ratings, ESPN’s coverage of NBA basketball landed them near the top Friday night, with a couple night games giving the network 0.7s at both 8:04 p.m. and 10:41 p.m.
