The rain abbreviated Tigers/Yankees game one of the ALDS that was ultimately completed on Saturday still topped all cable viewing for Friday with the 39 minutes of coverage racking up a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. The Rays/Rangers game earlier in the day scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

After see-sawing up four-tenths of a ratings point last week Friday Night Smackdown! was down two-tenths of a ratings point to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating to lead all of Friday night's cable shows.  Haven's season finale was steady with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. Star Wars: The Clone Wars was steady with a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

Disney's Jessie trailed only the abbreviated Yankees game in total viewers averaging 4.63 million from 9-9:30p on Disney Channel. Both Jessie and Phineas and Ferb (also over 4 million viewers averaged a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, but that's obviously not Disney's target demographic.

Update: Apologies to the Sponge!  I accidentally left SpongeBob out of the table below (I was skimming and assumed it was a repeat). It averaged 3.333 million viewers and a 0.8 adults 18-49 ratings.

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.
