American Horror Story was up two tenths of point from last week to a series high and cable leading 1.7 rating in adults 18-49.

That edged South Park which was up two tenths itself to a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Storage Wars must have been in repeats last night, its ratings were far below the typical new episode ratings.

Psych was up a tenth of a point to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

MTV's Real World was steady with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

The Daily Show had a huge night (Steve Jobs biographer guest?) up to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Mythbusters. was down a tenth with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, which was matched by its new Discovery stablemate Penn & Teller Tell A Lie.

Additions from @TVBill:

Bravo's Work Of Art had a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 620,000 viewers.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our source. If you don't see an original episode of a show here, it's because it wasn't in the top 100. If the show you're looking for isn't in the list, it doesn't mean it went down or even necessarily that it's lower than the shows in the list below, it just means we didn't see it.
