This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

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.
