Friday Cable Ratings: ‘Phineas & Ferb’ Dominate Friday; ‘Smackdown’ Rises + ‘Haven,’ ‘Thundercats’ & 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This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

Disney sent out the info for Phineas & Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension numbers over the weekend, so its Friday domination is no surprise. It was by far the most-watched program of the night with 7.6 million (and it was the most-watched basic cable movie so far this year). Its 1.3 rating with adults 18-49 was also tops for the night.. For more info see the Disney release.

Friday Night Smackdown! was up a tenth versus last week with a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Haven was down a tenth to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. The Thundercats dropped to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating and 1.5 million viewers in its second week, down from its premiere that had a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating and 2.4 million viewers.

Torchwood: Miracle Day isn’t in the table below but it averaged 582K viewers at 10pm (and a 0.25 A18-49 rating), up 7% from last week’s 545K 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. Will add extras that @TravisYanan reports later below.
