Jersey Shore dropped another three tenths vs. its previous week to a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating, but that was still above anything on broadcast  at 10pm on Thursday.

The season premiere of FX's Archer had a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating (identical to last season's January premiere rating). Following it, the series premiere of Unsupervised drew a 0.5 adults 18-49 ratings.

The season finale of Beyond Scared Straight was even with last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

The South Carolina GOP debate on CNN also scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. More on that in the regular cable news post.

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.
