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.
