Friday Cable: Rain-Shortened Yankees/Tigers Tops Night + ‘Haven,’ ‘Clone Wars,’ ‘Smackdown!’ & Much More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

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.
