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

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

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.
