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.
