This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

  • Syfy’s Sanctuary drew a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm.
  • TLC’s Say Yes To the Dress scored 0.5 ratings in its two episodes at 9 and 9:30pm

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.
