The season premiere of Discovery's(formerly ) led the night with a 1.3 adults 18-49 . Don't be confused by the second place " Alaska" and it's 1.0 in the table below, it was a special in-between seasons prelude episode "The Off-Season" with the old name.
Against Game 7 of the! was down another tenth to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating. TBS' Tyler Perry's of Payne drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating for each of its two half hours, that's up 0.2 and 0.1 respectively from last week's airings.
Syfy'swas up down 0.2 from last week to a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm.
Not in the table below, but up against Game 7 of theStarz' Boss had 391,000 viewers at 10pm, down from last week's premiere that drew 659,000 viewers at 1opm. While I scoff at the notion that Live+SD numbers aren't great indicators for broadcast networks and most basic cable channels, I buy the notion for premium cable channels who are only concerned with happy subscribers and getting more of them. Last week Boss had 1.7 million viewers in all its weekend airings, which surged to 3 million viewers in Live+3 viewing. This week its weekend viewings had 1.1 million viewers, and if it grows over 2 million in the L+3, I'm guessing Starz will be happy with the numbers. Boss has already been renewed for a second season.
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.
