Nickelodeon's SpongeBob Friday's primetime cable with adults 18-49 (and total viewers) with a 1.1 adults 1849 rating followed by History's American Restoration and Disney's Phineas and Ferb which each drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.
Haven returned to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. That's down from last year's premiere (0.7) but on par with last season's finale. Pretty good, I guess, considering Friday Night Smackdown! was down a 0.2 to a 0.6 rating. I didn't see the demo results for Torchwood: Miracle Day, but the 10pm telecast averaged 609,000 viewers, down from last week's premiere which drew 819,000. More info on Torchwood is available here.

I correctly guessed Haven would return to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, but nearly two-thirds of those voting in are unscientific poll predicted it would do better than a 0.5. The "wisdom of the crowds" was wiser when it came to Breaking Bad.
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.
