Deadliest Catch was again the top Tuesday night cable show with a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, down from last week's premiere of 1.4. NBA Basketball on TNT was the second-best cable performer with both games earning a 1.1 rating.

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 was not 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 Tuesday night's episode of Chopped.

    Is it me or are MTV ratings down overall lately? Like a lot. This seems low for 16 and Pregs, and last nights Fantasy Factory as well.

  • Mon

    15 airings of SVU made to the list! I’m curious how the post-Stabler seasons will perform on USA. I remember, USA used to air episodes from current season about 2 weeks after airing on NBC. Now it seems USA is anticipating a drop thus not airing season 13 reruns right away.

  • peter

    More people should watch TOP SHOT. It’s like survivor but with guns.

  • thatshowreallysucks

    Why is Dance Moms Miami never listed?

  • The Mike Factor

    @thatshowreallysucks

    I think your username answers that question.

  • Kevin

    The Claw – yeah, I’ve noticed as well. All of their shows have fallen A LOT. idk what’s going on or if their shows just aren’t interesting (Jersey Shore) so people aren’t watching like they used to.

  • Ice Mountain

    Too bad Kobe didn’t play for the Lakers but the NHL Playoffs have been amazing this year.

  • Anthony

    Looks like Dream Machines (on Syfy) didn’t make the list. That can’t be good. It’s actually not that bad of show.

  • Myke

    how were ratings for House of Consignment last night?

  • Torrid

    Wednesday ratings NBA (regular season) vs NHL (playoffs) – Read & Weep:
    ————————————————————————
    NBA Basketball: Boston/New York – TNT
    2.716 million viewers, #1; 1.457 million adults 18-49 (1.1 rating), #2
    NBA Basketball: San Antonio/L.A. Lakers – TNT
    2.336 million viewers, #3; 1.448 million adults 18-49 (1.1 rating), #3

    NHL Playoffs: Chicago/Phoenix – CNBC
    0.416 million viewers, #20; 0.266 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #19

    The NHL playoffs continue to be an afterthought compared to mere NBA regular season games – how u like them beans ‘Ice Mountain’? :)

  • The End

    @Anthony

    On the bright side, Fact or Faked will most certainly be renewed, even with those numbers.

  • RedEye

    Didnt the USA, SVU watchers know there was a new SVU episode on NBC?

  • RedEye

    Nevermind I forgot it was tuesday ratings? Sorry guys im still sleeping

  • Dejah

    I love the Game but also watched an liked Shannen Says. It looks like not that many viewers but I hope they keep it on.

  • James

    I think one thing a lot of people dont know is when you look at the ratings for Big Bang Theory..its very much inflated. And I say that because I have lived in Atlanta, and in Atlanta Tbs is not really a cable station. It is a free channel to the residents of Atlanta..So that adds to the total of viewers nationwide signifigantly..
