This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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


History’s Swamp People towered over the cable originals on Thursday night with a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, and its 4.465 million average viewers was a series high. That was up 0.2 from the last new episode I’ve got in late May. Presumably boosted by Swamp People, Mounted In Alaska scored a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Real Housewives of NYC was down a tenth vs. last week to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

TLC’s NY Ink registered a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Watch What Happens Live and First 48 Missing Persons both drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating each was down a tenth from last week.

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.
