Friday Cable Ratings: 16 Wishes Premieres Big; Party Down, Gravity Finales Finish Small

The premiere of the Disney Channel movie 16 Wishes shook up cable ratings on Friday, averaging 5.608 million viewers and a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating (although Disney cares more about the monster ratings it got for kids demos).

The season finales of Starz’s Gravity and  Party Down both scored a 0.0 adults 18-49 ratings, and either show’s average viewership for the hour could have been seated within Cowboys Stadium. There are plenty of shows I joke about having an infinite hype/ratings ratio, but in the case of Party Down, it’s the truth.
