South Park was again Wednesday's top cable show with a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49, down from last week's 1.4. Sons of Guns was the number two cable original with an 0.9 rating in adults 18-49.

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 Moonshiners.

    South park isnt doing that great. 1.3 is low for it.

    South park isnt doing that great. 1.3 is low for it.

    South Park hit 1.3s last year; it’s still winning the night, which is awesome for a scripted show in its 16th season.

  • John A

    Wow Hot In Cleavland is doing awful. Nice to see Charmed on the list.

  • John A

    I know South park is doing well but it used to be getting better ratings.

  • Mi

    Good to see Supernatural on the list, 0.4 at 11AM

  • Cliff Macke

    It was a bad move to rush airing the 2nd half of Hot in Cleveland, should have aired series in the summer where it began and has always earned it best ratings for the network. Plus TV land is constantly repeating the show through-out the week plus marathons…I fear the burn-out of this show may happen rather quickly before it even hits syndication.

  • Andrew

    Hot in Cleveland at a 0.2?! Happily Divorced probably barely registered.

  • msupdate

    What is going on with MTV? Viewership of all its shows have been down when compared to previous seasons and falling consistently episode-over-episode.

  • John

    Poor ABDC :(

  • ZJW

    Glad to see a strong showing from the NHL. And yes, i realize it doesn’t match up to the NBA’s numbers, so save it. I’m a slight bit shocked the lake game pulled 0.75 million viewers, though I suppose it’s only late here in the East, and it did feature two West Coast teams. I bet Pens/Flyers would have pulled higher if the Pens didn’t run away with it…

  • skepticalviewer

    Interior Therapy not even in the top 100-ouch!

  • jRobnyc

    It seems like many of the shows were down: Hot in Cleveland. Consn and I was surprised with Chelsea Lately how low it is in comparison to a few months past.

  • JR

    What happened to TV Land from 10-11? At least they have those repeat airings- I tell ya, some people probably catch them at different times because they do repeat often on the channel.

  • One

    Does anyone even know when the last time was that a Wednesday cable entry hit a 2 or higher in the ratings? Seriously, I’d like to know…

  • Kaner

    Stanley Cup Finals are kicking ass this year. That’s gotta be a record for VS/NBCSN for a first round game.

  • A

    Something went terribly wrong with tvland last night?
    Happy Divorced didn’t even make the list and Cleveland all the way on the bottom? That is bad. I hope they dont get canceled.

  • Torrid

    …,doesn’t match up to the NBA’s numbers, so save it….NAH – IN YA FACE!!!!

    WHAT SPORT TAKES A QUARTERFINAL BEFORE IT CAN BARELY BREAK 1 MILLION VIEWERS OF US TV AUDIENCE? HOW’S IT FEEL TO EAT “REGULAR SEASON” N.B.A. DUST PUCKERS? LOL! – FEW OF US LIKE OR WATCH HOCKEY BUT WE LIKE TO SEE YOU PUCKERS SQUIRM IN PUBLIC DEFEAT AND GET CONUPTION OVER THE LACK OF LOVE COMPARED TO THE “THUGGISH” N.B.A. – GET USED TO IT CRETINS – GONNA GET MUCH WORSE WHEN THE NBA PLAYOFFS BEGIN!!! :)

  • Kaylie

    ABDC needs to go back to Thursdays!

  • DW

    last night was a great t.v. night. maybe not rating wise but there was something good on . i dont watch hockey but i found myself watching then changed it to the mariner game then the soup DVR and then the networks.

  • Matt

    Somebody clearly needs to lay off the caps lock.

    By the way, the NBA is trending down while the NHL is trending way up. It’s been that way for a few years now. NHL ratings in quarter finals games are surpassing NHL FINALS ratings five years ago.

    Did I forget to mention the fact that the NHL went from being a $2 Billion league to a $3 billion league in five years?

    Or the fact that they’re on a channel that’s only available to 80% of the viewers the NBA is available, but is supposed to match ESPN in time for the Olympics.

    Or the fact that the NHL has BETTER attendance than the NBA?

    Oh, and enjoy that lockout in 2017. That’ll take the NBA out for at least a year, if not more.
