A repeat of American Dad actually had the most 18-49 viewers during Friday Night primetime, but an original Friday Night Smackdown! was close behind and up a tenth versus last week to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. ThunderCats was steady again with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating and Haven was steady again with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place led the night in total viewers with 3.6 million.

Torchwood: Miracle Day was up 14% in viewers to 662,000. It scored a 0.3 with adults 18-49 (courtesy of @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. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Will add extras that @TravisYanan reports later below.
