Friday Cable: ‘Smackdown’ Up, Tops Night; ‘Haven,’ ‘Thundercats’ Steady + ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ & 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This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.


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.
