The debut of Thursday Night Football on NFL Network wasn't a huge draw, but its 2.2 adults 18-49 rating and 5.3 million viewers was enough to top cable for the night.

Burn Notice was steady in its second November episode with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. Beavis & Butt-Head was off a tenth with adults 18-49 to a 1.0 rating, and the bonus 11pm episode scored a 0.9.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia took a hit against NFL action and was off three tenths to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Update via @TVBill: Not in the table below, but unsurprisingly FX's The League also took a hit dropping 0.2 to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating and 872,000 viewers.  MTV's Good Vibes was down another tenth to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating and 1.066 million viewers.
