Thursday Night Football with the Eagles/Seahawks was well down from its Thanksgiving game last week, and even down 0.5 with adults 18-49 vs. the Jets/Broncos game two weeks ago, but considering the game featured two teams who are going nowhere and wasn't close at the end,  it's still not bad. Either way, America is always ready for some football and the game easily led the night, doubling its closest competition with adults 18-49.

Burn Notice was up 50% versus its last original two weeks ago to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. It's seems pretty clear that CBS being in repeats or specials rather than procedurals this week has been good news for USA across all its scripted shows..

Beavis & Butt-Head two episodes averaged a 0.9 and 0.8 adults 18-49 rating respectively, down from two weeks ago when it had a 1.0 with adults 18-49.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was up two tenths vs. its last original to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. The League was up a tenth versus its last original to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, up a tenth from last week.

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. We'll try to update the post text when we see more info.
