This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

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.
