The second week of of Thursday Night Football on NFL Network benefited from a little Tebow miracle of its own, as the Broncos/Jets game jumped 0.7 ratings points vs. last week to a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. (a short bit of the post game show was higher rated, and I left it in the table below) That's huge considering that NFL Network is in only about half of US TV households.

Perhaps Burn Notice got run over by Tebow too, it slipped two tenths from last week to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Beavis & Butt-Head was steady vs. last week with adults 18-49 with a 1.0 rating. No Tebow effect there.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was steady vs. last week at a a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating. The League had a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating, up a tenth from last week.

History's Big Shrimpin premiered with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Update via @TVBill: MTV's Good Vibes drew a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 768,000 viewers at 10:30pm.

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.
