USA's Burn Notice fell 0.4 with adults 18-49 from its premiere last week to a 1.3 rating, and Suits also slumped 0.4 to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. The broadcast networks were all down ahead of the holiday weekend too, so that's not a big surprise. Perhaps it is more surprising that History's Swamp People did not suffer a pre-holiday slump and averaged a 1.7 with adults 18-49, same as last week.


FX's Wilfred was down 20% from its premiere to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, though with combined telecasts FX reports it was only down 8% versus last week with adults 18-49. Louie dropped a tenth from its premiere to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Comedy Central's Futurama was down two-tenths to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Real Housewives of NYC was also down a tenth 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.
