This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.


ESPN’s College Football game between TCU and Baylor had the most 18-49 viewers during Friday night cable primetime scoring a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Since it aired a new episode on Tuesday last week, Friday Night Smackdown! was a repeat on Friday. It drew a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

American Restoration was all over the list, with it’s 10pm airing notching a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

The premiere of Discovery’s Man, Woman, Wild had a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Tyler Perry’s Madea drew a 0.8 and 0.7 adults 18-49 ratings in its two airings.

Thundercats was steady again with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Haven slipped a tenth of a point to a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Torchwood: Miracle Day had a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.

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 I see later.
