South Park was again Wednesday's top cable show with a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49, flat with last week. Duck Dynasty 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.

    TV Land sitcoms rebounded from last week. :)

  • TomKH

    The Caps/Bruins game doesn’t include the local ratings right?

  • DW

    i remember that espn had to have NBA. those numbers seem like hockey numbers from a few years ago.

  • Walternate

    Does anybody know if Ugly Americans was renewed or was this the series finale?

  • Ben Thompson

    Great to see some hockey numbers here.

  • Matt

    TomKH: No local ratings included. Early report from puckthemedia says that over 20% of Boston watched on NESN with a peak of 25.5/39.

  • Peter

    Glad to see TV Land sitcoms doin better again, and as suspected, they get strong rerun ratings since people check them out when it fits them instead of all watching them at the premiere hour.
    With Happily Divorced getting a higher rating in the 18-49 demo then Hot In Cleveland did, a 3rd season order should happen any day now.

    10.00pm Hot In Cleveland 1.379.000
    10.30pm Happily Divorced 1.109.000

    01.00am Hot In Cleveland rr 889.000
    01.30am Happily Divorced rr 817.000

  • Jay S.

    With those ratings, have to believe this will be the end for Ugly Americans.

  • TomKH

    @Matt

    Over 20% of the Boston market is over 1 million viewers and the Washington market viewers would push it past 3 million. Why didn’t NBC aired it from 7-10? I would’ve done better than what they had on from 8-10.

  • Matt

    TomKH: Why does NBC still air half the shows they air?

    And I’m not gonna speculate on the actually viewer count for the Boston market (I dunno if they consider it city population or metro) but I’d assume it’s a decent number.

  • Matt

    PuckTheMedia reporting 3.1M viewers for PITT/PHI game 6 and 3.5M viewers for WSH/BOS game 6.

  • Ultima

    @TomKH
    Why didn’t NBC aired it from 7-10? I would’ve done better than what they had on from 8-10.

    Because NBC isn’t going to have hockey on its main network almost every night for two months…

    Also, not all of the regional sports networks are owned by NBC, and obviously they want the local broadcast rights for the games they are producing.

  • Jeeshman

    Was TLC somehow omitted? Or did it actually not have a show post in the top 100? New episodes of Toddlers and Tiaras normally get about a .05 or so, so that would be a significant drop.

    I’m sort of embarrassed that I know that.

  • One

    I’m still waiting for someone to explain why no one is trying to grab a 2 demo in the Wednesday @ 10 slot…

  • BrieK

    Brandy’s Behind The Music did well, right? I don’t remember seeing other artists’ Behind The Music score a 0.4 recently, but I could be wrong.

  • Debsafan

    I’m just tickled South Park is still doing good. I love this show. I have all season’s on DVD.

  • Number Cruncher

    @BrieK

    Yes that’s the highest Behind the Music in viewers and the demo for this season. The others have managed at or below 0.3 in the demo and none of the others have gotten above 700,000 viewers.

  • Master Moron

    Why do you always use a decade old pic for South Park?

  • BrieK

    Cool. Thanks, Number Cruncher.

  • Kaylie

    Its always MTV’s actually good shows to underperform. ABDC should be doing better.
