This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

Friday Night Smackdown! was up a big four tenths of a ratings point from last week to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating to lead all of Friday night’s cable shows.

ESPN’s College Football game between Brigham Young and UCF was well back in second place with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Haven dipped a tenth vs. last week to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

The second week of this season’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars was steady with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

Discovery’s Man, Woman, Wild was up a tenth to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

Updates via @TVBill for shows not in the top 100: Disney’s Prankstars 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 2.396m viewers; A.N.T. Farm 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 2.605 million; Fish Hooks 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 2.541 million, Kick Buttowski 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 2.371 million; So Random 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 2.423 million; Good Luck Charlie 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, 2.130 million.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary 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.
