Friday Cable Ratings: ‘American Restoration’ Tops Night + ‘Smackdown!;’ ‘Camelot’ Ends Season Well Below ‘Spartacus’ Prequel

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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


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.
