Tuesday Cable Ratings: ‘Sons of Anarchy,’ ‘Tosh.0’ Top Night + ‘Covert Affairs,’ ‘Workaholics,’ ESPN’s ‘Unguarded’

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

Sons of Anarchy was down a tenth from last week to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating but still topped cable for the night. SOA was in a virtual ratings tie with Tosh.0, which was up 0.5 from last week, but the ‘Sons’ actually had a handful more viewers age 18-49 than Tosh.

Workaholics was up three tenths to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.  USA’s Covert Affairs returned to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. There’s not really anything to compare it to since ‘Covert’ didn’t air any episodes this late last year, but in the apples-to-oranges comparison, that’s down 0.4 from the 1.4 adults 18-49 rating it got for its summer finale on August 9 when it didn’t air against fall broadcast competition (or Sons of Anarchy for that matter).

ESPN’s Unguarded documentary averaged a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and 1.4 million viewers.

An encore of NBC’s Grimm aired at 7p on Syfy last night, its numbers are included below.

Update: I forgot to include in the table below, but truTV’s Hardcore Pawn averaged a 0.4 with adults 18-49 at 9, 9:30 and 10p, and a 0.5 at 10:30p. The 10:30 episode had the most total viewers with 1.19 million.

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 your show it was in that top 100 list. I generally filter out repeats, and kids shows, and non-primetime shows.
