The Clippers dramatic overtime victory over the Heat on ESPN led the night's cable ratings and most of the game aired outside of primetime in the eastern and central timezones (it didn't begin until 10:43).  The Mavericks-Celtics game earlier in the night scored a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

truTV's Full Throttle Saloon was down two tenths vs. last week to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. 

Discovery's Sons of Guns was up two tenths vs. last week to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

TV Land's Hot In Cleveland was even vs. last week with a  0.4 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm. The Exes was also even with last week with another 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.

A&E's Dog the Bounty Hunter was down three tenths from last week's premiere to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and 2.345 million viewers (I accidentally deleted it from the table below, apologies Dog fans!).

Syfy's Face Off returned to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and nearly two million viewers.

 

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.
