Friday Cable Ratings: Insight, Music City Bowls Top ‘Gold Rush’ + ‘Sanctuary,’ ‘Smackdown!,’ ‘UFC 141 Prelims’ & More
The Insight Bowl (Oklahoma/Iowa) and the Music City Bowl (Miss St./ Wake Forest) lead the cable adults 18-49 ratings on Friday night.
Gold Rush led Friday cable’s non-pigkin offerings but was again down sharply (0. 5 points) vs. the previous week to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. Two weeks ago it had a 2.1 rating. Holidays, ouch.
UFC 141 Prelims on Spike tied Gold Rush’s 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.
Flying Wild Alaska was down two tenths vs. last week with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.
Friday Night Smackdown was even with the previous week’s 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
The Sanctuary season finale was also even last week at a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.
Update via @TVBill: The Life And Times Of Tim had the dreaded 0.0 adults 18-49 rating and just 78,000 viewers. Probably fewer than were at the Insight Bowl in person.
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.
