Thursday Cable: ‘Beavis & Butt-Head’ Falls Far, But Tops Night; ‘Burn Notice’ Returns Down; ‘It’s Always Sunny’ Rises & More
The second episode of MTV’s Beavis & Butt-Head fell 39% with adults 18-49 to a 1.1 rating, but still topped all cable. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia tied with ‘Beavis'(though “Beavis” had a few more viewers 18-49) was up 22% from last week. The League was up a tenth to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.
Nearly 90% of those polled predicted Burn Notice would beat NBC’s Prime Suspect in the ratings, and nearly 90% were wrong! Burn Notice returned to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, that’s down 50% from its November premiere a year ago (on 11/11) and down 30% from its summer finale on September 8 (Prime Suspect averaged a 1.2 adults 18-49 Thursday night).
Update via @TVBill: The second episode of MTV’s Good Vibes fell two tenth to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating and 1.19 million viewers. Given how far ‘Beavis’ fell, that doesn’t seem bad.

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.
