Friday Night Smackdown! was down a tenth of a point to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, and that tied with SpongeBob Squarepants for the cable ratings lead on Friday.

In cable premieres on Friday:

  • TBS' Tyler Perry's House of Payne drew a 0.4 and 0.5 adults 18-49 rating in its two half hours.
  • Starz's Boss had 659,000 viewers at 1opm. Will add demo ratings when I see them.

Syfy's Sanctuary was up a tenth from last week to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars (a repeat) drew a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating and 940,000 average viewers, thanks to @TVBill for the info.

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.
