It was an amazing night for baseball, and a good night for baseball cable ratings. The first item in the list is a short highlight show, but note the two 7pm games on ESPN (Boston v. Baltimore)  and ESPN2 (Philly v. Atlanta? StL. v. Houston?)  and all the other pre and post game shows in the list for the night.

Several premieres on cable last night:

  • The Real World XXVI scored a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating to lead regular cable programming on the night.
  • Mythbusters drew a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
  • Extreme Couponing had a 0.6 and 0.5 adults 18-49 rating in its two episodes.

Operation Repo drew a 0.6 and 0.4 adults 18-49 rating in its two episodes,  the second down a tenth from last week.

Syfy's Paranormal Witness was steady with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Bonus ratings from @TVBill:

A.N.T. Farm 0.2 adults 18-49 rating, 2.055 million

So Random 0.2 adults 18-49 rating, 2.106 million

Nothing yet for the Luther premiere, will post if and when I see it.

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.
