Wednesday Cable: ‘Storage Wars’ Tops; ‘Necessary Roughness,’ ‘Melissa & Joey’ Finales; ‘Operation Repo’ Premiere & More
A&E’s Storage Wars still topped the Wednesday night cable ratings, but not nearly from the same level. Its episodes scored a 1.9 and a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating down from 2.1 ratings for both last week. Although I removed them from the list, Storage Wars repeats saturated the top of the rankings last night.
In its season finale USA’s Necessary Roughness rose a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Was it Terrell Owens? Whatever it was, it was just announced as being renewed by USA.
The season finale of ABC Family’s Melissa & Joey drew 0.7 adults 18-49 ratings in both episodes.
The premiere of Operation Repo drew a 0.5 and 0.6 adults 18-49 rating in its two episodes.
The second week of of Syfy’s Paranormal Witness was steady with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.
Discovery’s Sons Of Guns jumped 0.3 points to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating for second place on the night.
Dance Moms was up a noticeable 0.2 ratings points to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
Update: I’ve had a few questions about truTV Hulk Hogan’s Micro Championship Wrestling. It’s not in the table below, but it had a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and 999,000 average viewers.
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. If the show you’re looking for isn’t in the list, it doesn’t mean it went down or even necessarily that it’s lower than the shows in the list below, it just means we didn’t see it.
