ESPN's College Football game between Missouri and Arizona St. tied with Friday Night Smackdown!  for the night's adults 18-49 ratings lead, each drew a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

The second week of  of Discovery's Man, Woman, Wild was steady with a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

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

Haven was up two tenths of a point to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

As some commenters noted, Phineas and Ferb hit series highs in several ratings categories.

Here are the Torchwood: Miracle Day ratings from helpful commenter Nick:

Torchwood: Miracle Day (STARZ, 10 PM)
-0.640 million viewers
-0.29 A18-49
-0.31 A8-34

Torchwood: Miracle Day (STARZ, 11 PM)
-0.310 million viewers
-0.11 A18-49
-0.11 A18-34

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.
