Thursday Cable Ratings: 49ers/Chargers Tops; ‘Burn Notice’ Goes Out on High Note; ‘Real Housewives,’ ‘Always Sunny’ & More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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 49ers/Chargers NFL game topped the cable night with adults 18-49, despite the NFL Network only being available in around half the homes in the U.S.  But its 1.9 adults 18-49 rating topped the best hour of Burn Notice, though the 10pm hour of Burn Notice averaged more total viewers than the NFL Network game.

I already posted about Burn Notice’s season four finale, which went out with fall ratings highs.  Some detail is included below, more details here.

A 60 minute  Always Sunny in Philadelphia dropped two-tenths from last week’s half hour version with adults 18-49 to a 0.6 rating.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills gained a tenth to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.
