Swamp People was the top cable show with a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49 , up from a 1.7 last week.  Punk'd was the number two cable original with a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating identical to last week.

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 Impractical Jokers.

    Glad Pauly D and Punk’d stayed steady, in the demo.

    Punk’d was really good last night. By far the best of the season, so far.

  • panda22

    meh!

  • Joe

    Why would you be happy Pauly D stayed steady? The show is god awful. Are you just into pain?

  • RJ

    Look at that drop for The Big Bang Theory at 9pm, wow!

  • RJ

    *Obviously due to the repeat on CBS, but I was pointing it out.

  • claire

    Punk’d fell in viewers, as did Pauly D. And last week was Easter/Passover, so a hold from last week is akin to a drop. Punk’d is totally reliant on stunt casting, if they have enough stars it will be OK. Pauly D is dead – there’s no show there. The dynamic range of quality, from critically loved Awkward and Pants to horrific Pauly D on MTV is wild. I could see them trying to spin that as a positive, but really it feels like two different people are programming the network. I hope the smarter one wins. Or at least they need to create different nights – Pauly D and Ridiculesness on one night, Awkward and Pants on another.

  • Rodrigo

    Glad Pauly D keeps dropping in viewers.

  • Dumpster Dave

    Pauly D is just as awful as Swamp People. If you watch these two programs live then you need to get slapped the hell out of.

  • William

    Sweet hopefully MTV gets rid of that god awful Pauly D show. Death to all things Jersey Shore

  • shelly

    when will conan obrien be cancelled..he’s made millions but nobody is watching..he made this decision to go on tbs

  • shelly

    i hope paulyD doesnt blame his friends for a bad show ..this does not bode well for jwoww..but at least jwoww has snookie who mite bring in the ratings..but they should have teamed snookie with the other marshmellow dina..but jwoww probably screwed the producer to be a hoboken ho

  • EatMorePez

    @shelly

    When will Conan be canceled? Not until May 2014 at the earliest as the show was recently renewed for 2 more years.
