Dueling King Arthurs: The premiere of Camelot on Starz bettered Syfy's Merlin in the adults 18-49 demo 0.5 vs.  0.4. That's pretty impressive as Syfy is available in about 75 million more homes than Starz.  Merlin won out in total viewers with 1.424 million, nearly 300,000 more than Camelot. Camelot was the highest-rated and most-watched original series premiere ever for Starz.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown was down a tenth vs. last week to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

The late NBA Game on ESPN led all cable for the night with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.
