Storage Wars was Friday's top cable original with a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49.

Bonus from @TVBill:  Jessie 0.4 adults 18-49 rating, 3.022 million viewers.

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 an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100 for adults 25-54.

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 Fairly Legal.

  • Jimmy

    Could you please post ratings for House of Consignment on VH1 (both new episodes)?

  • Jimmy Henderson

    Where are “Magic City” numbers? Why is there so much trouble getting ratings for STARZ shows?

  • Poweranimals

    What did Jessie get? I wouldn’t mind knowing Fish Hooks either.

  • bsp

    Not digging Fairly Legal this season at all, especially the new male lead character.

    Does anyone know when the In Plain Sight series finale is scheduled to air?

  • Epicfail037

    Wow, those have been ANT Farm’s highest ratings since the 2-part special that aired on Thanksgiving weekend. Not that I care, just noticed-certainly a good benefit after how ugly it’s been since then.

  • Bfleet

    Smackdown was a ‘repeat’ on Friday. That ‘episode’ aired live on Tuesday.

  • Big Apple 22

    Smackdown has been repeating so well on Fridays when they have a live show on Tuesdays. Sometimes the Friday shows end up beating the Tuesday shows.

    I think the debate will always be there if the WWE should add live Smackdown shows on Tuesdays regularly. I don’t see the point honestly if they do this well on Fridays every week. If the WWE isn’t going to duplicate what they do on Raw onto Smackdown then there’s no point.

  • disney rocks

    Weird how Jessie didn’t make it. I’m truly shocked it didn’t make it. Disney promoted the hell out of the Who dunnit? episodes. At least I know A.NT Farm did well. Jessie should probably go back to 9PM once GLC comes back. Shake it Up! to Friday @8.

  • Justin

    Look, still no appearance from the Cartoon Network durring primetime hours. So it seems whatever they are showing, is not doing well. They need to bring back THUNDERCATS. Week after week, THUNDERCATS was on high on this list in viewers and demo’s. What are they doing over there?

  • DougF

    “WWE Smackdown was the number two new cable original with a 0.7 among adults 18-49″

    Pretty sure it was just a repeat of the Live one they had on Tuesday

  • The End

    It was, both Smackdown and Dream Machines were repeats from Tuesday. No new episodes were aired on Friday.

  • Dwight Howard Stan Van Gundy

    A Repeat of Smackdown beat the NBA pretty badly.

    WWE Television is pretty strong right now.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    Jessie ratings added to post.

  • Jimmy

    @ Bill – What about House of Consignment?

  • Freddy Arrow

    I like Fairly Legal, but barely beating a couple of random SVU repeats doesn’t seem like a very good sign. I assume original programming must be more expensive than whatever USA pays to air SVU.

  • Chrisjozo

    I really wish Common Law would be put on a different night with a better lead-in. It would have been better off having Psych or Suits as lead ins.

  • Number Cruncher

    @Jimmy

    House of Consignment
    (8:00) 138,000 (0.1 18-49)
    (8:30) 127,000 (0.1 18-49)

    The fact that VH1 aired these 2 episodes on Friday and they are currently (they have been known to make changes within 24 hours of a show airing) planning on airing 2 episodes tomorrow at 10pm means the show is in burnoff mode and it’s a dead show walking. There are 4 episodes left to air and the plan is to air them all before next Wednesday.

    Also I did not see Magic City numbers. Futon Critic did not have them.

  • epicfail037

    Also, courtesy of Futon Critic:

    Fish Hooks – 3.008 million, 0.3 18-49 rating
    Fred: The Show – 1.934 million, 0.3 18-49 rating

  • Jimmy

    @Number Cruncher – Thank you!

  • trevor

    Good numbers for a good episode of ANT FARM (after a few weeks of repeats).
