Teen Mom 2 was even with last week’s 1.9 adults 18-49 rating with its 10pm episode, but a new episode at 11pm averaged a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating,

truTV’s Hardcore Pawn was up a tenth with  a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating at 9pm.

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 your show it was in that top 100 list. I generally filter out repeats, and kids shows, and non-primetime shows.
