Friday Cable Ratings: ‘American Restoration’ Tops Night + ‘Smackdown!;’ ‘Camelot’ Ends Season Well Below ‘Spartacus’ Prequel
After a week(?) off, American Restoration returned to rule the Friday night cable ratings with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding scored a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating, the same as one of its Sunday premiere episodes almost two weeks ago (but I may have missed on in the interim).
Friday Night Smackdown! was even with last week’s 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
Dual Survival’s 0.6 adults 18-49 rating was also identical to last week’s.
Camelot’s first season came to a close with no news about its renewal. I didn’t see last week’s numbers but its 0.4 adults 18-49 rating was on the high end for the season, but just half the 0.8 the finale of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena scored on February 25.
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. Will add extras that @TravisYanan reports later below.
