There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

  • NickelodeonRocks

    Amanda, legend of korra got 4.5 milion, not 3.9 million. Error.

  • poweranimals

    What did How to Rock get?

  • disney rocks

    Good to see ALL those Disney shows make it. Not one of their originals for the weekend were below 4 million.

    With 3.7 million, Shake it Up really should be the Friday anchor, not Jessie.

  • SalaciousCrumb

    I miss the 18-49 #s that someone posted last week.

  • Epicfail037

    What is up with cable recently dropping so much lately? Not just Nickelodeon and Disney, but in general. Last week’s #25 was 3.021, here it wasn’t much better. What’s happening…?

  • Jon23812

    Glad to see KORRA on the top 5.

  • Gian

    Yay for Korra! But 3.2 for Victorious? That’s kinda low, anyway, those SpongeBob reruns are also strong

  • Ray

    How come NinjaGo on Cartoon Network isn’t on the list? It scored 3.3 million viewers last Wednesday.

  • j

    I know it’s old news by now, but it’s still weird that History has the cable-topping shows these days.

    Im so happy for both Disney and Nick. But I wonder when Disney will come to their senses and put Shake it Up on Fridays at 8:00 and put Jessie back at 9. Hopefully for the summer when Good Luck Charlie returns to Sundays.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    @disney rocks and Kaylie: Once Gravity Falls premieres, Disney will already have 5 shows sharing 3 to at most 4 slots on Friday nights; I’d be surprised if they add another one.
