Note: ran into some data issues with creating last night's posts so a few things that normally would've been in the table aren't, but I've addressed them in the text.

Storage Wars topped the night with  a 2.0 and 1.9 adults 18-49 rating for its telecasts, down slightly from last week's 2.1 and 1.9 adults 18-49 ratings for its respective telecasts.

Royal Pains fell back 18% to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating and Necessary Roughness was steady with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.  MTV's Challenge Rivals was up four-tenths to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating and 2.057 million viewers.. Rescue Me was down another tenth to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating and Toddlers & Tiaras was up 50%  to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating and 1.841 million viewers.

Hot In Cleveland was steady with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, and Happily Divorced dropped 0.1 to a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating. Melissa & Joey was up a tenth to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating and  State of Georgia scored a 0.3 adults 18-49 ratings. Rosanne's Nuts was up slightly to 0.4 and 0.3 adults 18-49 ratings versus last week's 0.3 and 0.2.  Dance Moms was steady with a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating and Jon Benjamin Has a Van was also steady with 0.3 A18-49 rating. Special thanks to @TVBill for coming through with the data gaps I had today.

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.
