MTV's The Challenge: Battle of the Exes rose two tenths of a point vs. last week's premiere to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating to lead original shows on cable Wednesday night, although it was beaten by two The Big Bang Theory repeats.

We're making a few changes to how we post the daily cable ratings:

  • We're now posting all the data we receive, including both repeats and originals. Enjoy.
  • We're reducing the amount of prose comparing shows to their previous week's ratings, if you'd like to compare for yourself check out past daily cable ratings posts here.

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 wasn't in that top 100 list.
