Discovery's Sons of Guns was down a tenth vs. last week to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating, but that topped all new cable shows on Wednesday (it was beaten by two syndicated repeats).

The season premiere of USA's Royal Pains drew a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating down two tenths vs. a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating in its January premiere last year. 

truTV's Full Throttle Saloon was down one tenth vs. last week to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating. 

TV Land's Hot In Cleveland was down a tenth vs. last week with a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm. The Exes wasn't in the top 100 but it had a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating and 985,000 viewers.

A&E's Dog the Bounty Hunter was down two tenths from last week to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Extras via @TVBill here when I see them.

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.
