WWE Raw was Monday's highest rated cable original among adults 18-49, earning a 1.8 rating in its first hour and a 1.7 in its second, matching last week's 1.8 at 9PM but down from last week's  1.9 at 10PM. Ridiculousness was the number two cable original with a  0.8 rating among 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 an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in that 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 La-La's Full Court Life.

    Ahem! excuses excuses excuses … for all the hyperbole the NHL play-offs semi-final is beaten like a common-thief by a mere NBA pre-game show!!!!
    *************************************************************************
    This after what was frequently reported as huge ratings for its 2012 playoff games now that NHL has a national broadcaster (NBCSN). I guess if I was not here calling out the BS you sorry lot would be creaming yourselves (as you tend to do on every available forum) about how great the playoffs are doing in the ratings; it happens every year – spinning little marginal adjustments for all they are worth then extrapolating these to idiotic NBA killing prediction lunacy.

    Simple facts however are hard to spin when you focus on them – that’s my role here cretins.

    Now once more: SUCK ON THIS :)

  • Hannah

    what did make it get?

  • Bsilver

    Read all the post. Don’t believe anyone insinuated that NHL was close to NBA in terms of popularity. I think the OP was just highlighting the fact that 2nd round of NHL Hockey playoffs had less viewers than NBA pre-game show, which says a lot about our national (U.S.) interest when it comes to the sport of hockey.

  • Stella

    NCIS:LA does pretty well on USA, a 0.7 is not bad at all :)

  • Pete

    People are comparing NBA and NHL but they are ignoring one important fact. NBA games have a huge African American following. Blacks make up on average 50%-70% of the people watching NBA (Source: Nielsen). NHL is the opposite. I’ve never seen a Hockey game making the Nielsen weekly top 25 most-watched shows by African American households.

    Among blacks: NBA is much more popular than NHL. And it’s not going to change anytime soon.

    Among whites: NHL and NBA are very close with hockey becoming more and more popular in this demographic while basketball has lost a lot of its popularity compared to the 80-90’s.

  • Matt

    See that? Torrid managed to take ONE of the many points and try to conveniently avoid the rest.

    And the funny thing is he’s still wrong. NBCSN is only available to roughly 80% of the American audience that ESPN is available to.

    There goes your credibility.

  • SarahL

    @Pete

    Taking your claim that more African American watch the NBA than watch the NHL to be be true, what exactly is your point regarding the ethnic differences between the people watching the NBA and the NHL?

  • Nicole

    It was the reunion show on bad girls club.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    MAKE IT OR BREAK IT = 0.4 A18-49 and 907,000 viewers.

    THE PITCH: 0.0 A18-49 (45,000 viewers 18-49, but it rounds to a 0.0 rating) and 173,000 total viewers at 9p.

  • Rocky89

    @The End & Martin

    Amanda herself explained what’s going on with the show at the Calgary Con, and she put a lot of fans at ease. :)

  • Torrid

    Ah SarahL – the little fella (Pete that’s you) is kinda stuck in the 40’s somewhere, happily, America’s moved on much more than he wants to believe – you know his type, they unsurprisingly, are hockey fans ;) – nuff said.

    Let’s just enjoy their embarrassment, squirming and exasperation as the ‘hated’ ‘boring’ ‘thuggish’ NBA eats Hockeys lunch all over this post-season.

    AS for little Matty, those NBA numbers are getting to you son, brace yourself its gonna get worse, afterall its only the first round.

    Ironically, the NBC deal between the NHL and NBC is now serving to expose hockey’s irrelevancy even more!!! All that national exposure and the lame campaign slogan “Because it’s the cup” has dropped like a damp squib in our national sports psyche. I bet the NHL and NBC never saw that coming …did you Matt? LOL!!!!!

    Nobody really pays attention to the sport here in the states but for (as I said before) a few eastern cities, some transplants from hockey friendly regions like Canada and assorted racists. The rest of the nation gives a collective YAWN! and flips the channel. There’s a reason the NHL playoffs cannot yet break a 1.6million nationally – we simply don’t care for it. Now tell me hockey fans – HOW’s THAT MAKE YOU FEEL? :(

  • Pete

    @SarahL:

    It’s not a claim. It’s a fact. Try websites such as Sports Media Watch or Target Market News. You’ll find a lot of numbers on this subject.

    What is my point? Well i’m trying to say that in some demographics (White americans), the NHL is quickly catching up with the NBA.

    @Torrid: Are you really calling me a racist because i dared mentionned the fact that different demographics watch different sports? Man, you need to get off the internet and calm down.

  • sam

    anything for Strangers with Money on MTV after Ridiculousness

  • rob60990

    Make It or Break It deserved its cancellation.

  • Matt

    Torrid: In three of the four games (Currently reported on) that have actually been exposed NATIONALLY (You still don’t seem to understand that NBCSN is only available to 80% of households) they’ve broken 3M viewers.

    But hey, that’s what happens when you don’t know the facts.

  • Matt

    http://espn.go.com/nhl/attendance/_/sort/homePct

    http://espn.go.com/nba/attendance/_/sort/homePct

    Ouch, a whopping 5% difference in attendance averages. Those guys must be thinking the NHL is such a yawnfest that they should PAY to yawn there!

    Let’s see, just pulling a number out of the air, let’s say the average building seats 17,500. 5% of that is 825 extra tickets sold, times 1,230 games comes out to a whopping 1,014,750 more tickets sold for the NHL via capacity averages.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Sam: MONEY FROM STRANGERS = 0.5 adults 18-49 rating and 1.223 million viewers.

  • Todd

    Any numbers for the Texas-Toronto MLB game on ESPN or did I miss that in the listings?

  • Torrid is a True Idiot & a Troll

    Torrid is a real idiot on here, Matt is backing his stuff up with true facts.

    Pete made a great argument also about the African American demographic being so huge for the NBA.

    Let’s not forget that back in 70s the NBA was always taped delayed while hockey was doing better in a lot of markets before Bird and Magic came in the early 80s which changed everything and it got even bigger with Jordan in the 90s.

    Both the NBA and NHL have been growing the past 3 years so both leagues are on an upswing. By 2020, their audience would be really swelled in.

    The NHL has such a good upside right now b/c the NHL has finally tapped into their East Coast markets and getting huge numbers like they got last night with Washington-New York getting 1.5 million which was unheard for a very long time for a 2nd round game on a network that’s only cleared in 80% of the markets.

    NBCSN will get bigger and so will the NHL.

  • Jenny

    Jesus what happened to Secret Life’s viewers? It’s getting obliterated.
    Make it or Break it… sad to see these numbers for it’s finale episodes, but it’s obviously very lead-in dependent.
