Updated: Wednesday Cable Ratings: ‘Storage Wars,’ ‘Royal Pains,’ ‘Necessary Roughness’ Top Night + ‘Franklin & Bash,’ ‘Hot in Cleveland’ & More
Storage Wars fell from last week’s 2.0 and 2.2 adults 18-49 ratings to a pair of 1.7 adult 18-49 ratings this week, but that still topped the cable competition for the night.
Royal Pains was steady vs. last week with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, and Necessary Roughness was up a tenth to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. MTV’s Challenge Rivals was up 0.2 to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Now renewed for a second season, Franklin & Bash was up a tenth to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Rescue Me was up a tenth to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and Toddlers & Tiaras was up a tenth to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.
After rising 0.2 last Wednesday, Hot In Cleveland was down 0.1 to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, and Happily Divorced was steady with a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.
Update: Melissa & Joey scored a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and 883K viewers. State of Georgia tied a series low with adults 18-49 with a 0.2 rating. It had 552K viewers (not sure if that’s a series low). Roseanne’s Nuts sagged lower and had a 0.4 and 0.3 adults 18-49 rating for its respective episodes (885K and 822K total viewers), again losing to the reruns of Pawn Stars on Lifetime from 8-9p (0.6 & 0.5 adults 18-49 ratings). Hat tip to @TVBill.
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. If the show you’re looking for isn’t in the list, it doesn’t mean it went down or even necessarily that it’s lower than the shows in the list below, it just means we didn’t see it.
