ESPN’s College Football game between Toledo and Boise State topped Friday’s cable ratings with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. Friday Night Smackdown! was down three-tenths from last week to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, though it looks a little worse than it actually was with rounding (technically it was down from a 0.96 adults 18-49 rating to a 0.74 adults 18-49 rating). Haven was steady with another a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.  The season premiere of Star Wars: Clone Wars drew 1.93 million viewers and a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. While 18-49 isn’t exactly the target demo for the show, last week’s season finale of Thundercats scored a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating, though it had fewer total viewers with 1.6 million.

Discovery’s Man, Woman, Wild was again steady with a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Update via @TVBill: not in the table below, but Disney’s A.N.T Farm averaged 3.176 million viewers and a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. For those curious about the Happy Endings marathon on ABC Family, every episode (there were 6 in primetime) averaged a 0.1 adults 18-49 rating. The most-watched telecast averaged 306,000 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. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Will add extras that I see later.
