Friday Cable: ‘Smackdown’ Tops Night; Hurricane Irene Boosts Weather Channel + ‘Haven,’ ‘Thundercats’ & More
A repeat of Family Guy had the most 18-49 viewers during Friday Night primetime, while Friday Night Smackdown! topped original cable but was down two tenths versus last week to a 0.7 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.
With Hurricane Irene bearing down on the US East Coast, The Weather Channel punched *way* above its ordinary weight class. I left all the Weather Channel shows that appeared in the top 100 in the list below so you could get an idea of how they held the audience through the night. Let the graphic bring you back to the “Extreme” threat The Weather Channel was predicting for much of the East.
Torchwood: Miracle Day ratings courtesy of commenter Nick:

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.
