Gold Rush (formerly Gold Rush: Alaska) again led the cable night with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. but that was down a tenth of a point vs. last week.

ESPN's College Football game between Oklahoma State and Iowa State drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Flying Wild Alaska also dipped a tenth from last week to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Friday Night Smackdown! was down a tenth vs. last week to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

Syfy's Sanctuary was even with last week at a 0.4 adults 18-49.

Update via our friend @TVBill: ThunderCats scored a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and 1.334 million viewers at 8:30pm.

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 an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Will add extras that I see later.
