The return of USA's Burn Notice tied History's Swamp People in cable originals on Thursday night with a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Suits debuted well to a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating and 4.636 million viewers.  Despite a middling draft class, the NBA Draft still pulled a 1.5 rating on ESPN, its best ratings since 2007.

FX's Wilfred debuted as the highest-rated comedy premiere ever for FX with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and 2.553 million viewers. Louie returned up scoring a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating and 1.569 million viewers.

Comedy Central's Futurama returned to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating for each of its half hour episodes.

Real Housewives of NYC was steady vs. last week to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

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.
