Jersey Shore free of NFL competition still dropped a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 3.8 adults 18-49 rating. It still crushed everything else on cable or broadcast on Thursday night.

Lifetime’s Project Runway was back up three tenths to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

The season premiere of FX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia had a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, and in the beginning of a special 3 week run Archer drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

A&E’s Beyond Scared Straight season finale was down a tenth from last week to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

The series finale of TLC’s LA INK scored a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Syndicated Castle repeats appeared in the top 100 list for the first time I could recall, so I kept them in the list for interest purposes. The rest of the many syndicated repeats which were mostly ahead of Castle from NCIS, L&O:SVU, CSI:NY and others I removed from the list as usual.

Some extra ratings from our friend @TVBill:

Regular Show 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 1.732 million viewers

Problem Solverz 0.2 adults 18-49 rating, 1.280 million viewers
