This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

South Park slipped a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, but that was still enough to lead the cable ratings on Wednesday. Following it, Workaholics was also down a tenth to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Special for the night, both the NHL Stanley Cup Final Game 4 and the CMT Music Awards scored 1.1 adults 18-49 ratings. The NHL Stanley Cup Final Game 4 averaged 2.714 million viewers, down 13% vs. last year’s Game 4 (3.126 million) which was also on Versus.

MTV’s Real World Las Vegas reunion show dropped four tenths from  last week’s season finale to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

TNT’s Franklin & Bash slipped a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Paris Hilton’s The World According To Paris on Oxygen was not in the top 100 cable shows for the day. I will post the ratings if I see them elsewhere.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our source. If you don’t see an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Also, to limit the size of the list, I list only the top rated airing of each individual show.Will add extras that @TravisYanan reports later below.
