With one team heading to the playoffs vs. none last week, Thursday Night Football with the Steelers/Browns was up just two tenths from last week to a 2.6 adults 18-49 vs. the Eagles/Seahawks game.

CBS procedurals were back with new episodes and that may have been what knocked Burn Notice down two tenths of a point vs. last week to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

The only Beavis & Butt-Head episode on last night had a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia was down a tenth vs. last week to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. The League was even with last week's 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

The premiere of A&E's The First 48 generated a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating at 9pm. At 10pm, the premiere of Beyond Scared Straight had a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

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.
