Cable Ratings: ‘Royal Pains’ ‘Necessary Roughness’ Top Wednesday Cable + ‘Franklin & Bash,’ Not So Raven? & Much More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

 

I posted the numbers for Necessary Roughness and Royal Pains earlier, but additional detail is below. They each had a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating and led the cable night.  Franklin & Bash was down two-tenths from last week, to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating, but still tied for third in primetime.

MTV’s Challenge Rivals dropped 0.3 from its premiere last week to a 0.8 dults 18-49 rating.

Raven-Symoné’s return to television in State of Georgia drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating on ABC Family and trailed Storage Wars (a repeat with a 0.8) and Mythbusters (0.7). Given how popular decade old reruns of “That’s So Raven” were on Disney Channel, I was hoping for a 2.0, but it was still the second-best ABC Family comedy launch with adults 18-49.

Toddlers & Tiaras was down 0.2  to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating. TV Land’s Hot In Cleveland was steady versus last week with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, but Happily Divorced was steady with a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

TNT’s Men of a Certain Age was down a tenth versus last week with a 0.3 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.
