The two clinching games of the NLDS baseball series topped all cable viewing for Friday with the Cardinals/Phillies game drawing a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, and the earlier Diamondbacks/Brewers game drawing a 1.4 rating.

Friday Night Smackdown! was up a tenth of a ratings point to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

In cable season premieres on Friday:

Star Wars: The Clone Wars ratings not in the table below, but our friend @TVBill sends along news that it drew a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating and 1.352 million viewers. The 7:30pm SpongeBob is below, the 8pm airing also had a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and drew 2.459 million viewers.

Disney's Jessie was down just a tenth among adults 18-49 (not the Disney target). Its 4.23 million viewers were down about 400,000 from last week. Phineas and Ferb  fell two tenths to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

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.
