I posted the Jersey Shore release from MTV earlier and noted that it didn't quite set viewing records. The wisdom of the crowds didn't quite pan out as a late surge in polling predicted a record high with adults 18-49, and it wasn't really close, but was indeed still in "beast mode" with a 4.3 adults 18-49 rating. The 1.8 adults 18-49 rating for the 11pm 'Shore' repeat topped everything else on cable, and most broadcast shows Thursday night.
USA's Burn Notice was steady versus last week with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, but stablemate Suits which had to go head-to-head with Jersey Shore lost 0.2 to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. But all things considered held up well.. Project Runway was steady with a a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. FX's Wilfred which also had to battle Snooki and crew was down 0.3 from last week to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating,. Louie was also down 0.2 to a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating. Comedy Central's Futurama was steady with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
Update: Not in the table below, but Ugly Americans scored a 0.3 rating with adults 18-49 and 730,000 viewers down from last week's 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and 870,000 viewers. LA Ink averaged a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating and 1.158 million viewers.
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.
