Cable Rankings 18-49/18-34: NBA Playoffs Top 18-49 Viewing, “South Park” & “The Hills” Tops With 18-34

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Usually we only publish total viewer averages for cable shows, and I don’t see making a weekly thing out of this, but there are a couple of interesting things to note.  While the first game of the Celtics/Cavaliers had more viewers, last Tuesdays Thunders/Lakers had a few more adults 18-49 viewers.  South Park, which didn’t make the top 25 in total viewers was the week’s number four program (trailing only NBA playoffs) with adults 18-49.  The Hills, which also wasn’t in the viewing top 25 was the week’s 8th most-watched program with adults 18-49, and the return of The Boondocks made the top 25 with adults 18-49 as well.

Things looked even better for South Park and The Hills with 18-34 where they topped the NBA playoffs,  The Boondocks fared much better in that demo as well, but I’ll leave the data junkies to do their own comparisons — 18-49 & 18-34 rankings for the week ending May 2, 2010 are below.
