MTV's The Challenge: Battle of the Exes was again even with last week at a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating, but still led original shows on cable Wednesday night, although it trailed late-nigh Family Guy syndicated repeats on Adult Swim.

Post Arizona GOP debate coverage with the five minutes of Anderson Cooper 360 from 9:55-10p coming out on top for the night with 4.746 million excluding that, the debate itself (not CNN's best debate of the season) was the night's most-watched show with 4.734 million.

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.

The list below is long but you can use your browsers "find on page" feature (usually CTRL+F or CMD+F) to search - that's probably the easiest way to find last night's episode of Face Off.
