Broadcast Official Nationals Program Ratings Chart  

 

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  ESPN’s NBA SUMMER PRO LEAGUE games led Friday cable at 0.67 for Knicks vs. New Orleans and 0.35 for Lakers vs. Chicago.  On We, LOVE AFTER LOCKUP rose 0.07 to 0.30, and BRIDEZILLAS was down 0.02 to 0.13.  Food Network’s DINERS, DRIVE-INS & DIVES ticked up to 0.25.  A&E’s LIVE PD clip show dropped 0.07 to 0.23.  (A note on the many SEINFELD 30TH ANNIVERSARY listings for TBS:  when a network rebrands a rerun under a new title, it comes through as an “original,” which is why they’re all over the Friday chart.)  On History, ANCIENT ALIENS ticked up to 0.20, and UNIDENTIFIED was down 0.02 to 0.17.  MTV’s RIDICULOUSNESS was at 0.18/0.15, compared to last week’s 0.20/0.17.  On Discovery, BATTLEBOTS shed 0.04 to 0.16, and SAVAGE BUILDS was down 0.05 to 0.11.  Cinemax’s JETT plunged 0.09 to 0.03/125K.  Staz’s MOTHERFATHERSON managed to creep back into visibility at 0.01/54K.
