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.

    “… In three of the four games that have actually been exposed NATIONALLY they’ve broken 3M viewers…”
    —————–
    CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP – well parsed, Matty well parsed – I see you’re learning the spinning art – “EXPOSED” nationally breaking 3 mill is of course not the same as having a 3 mill national audience, but you know that of course, taking your local numbers and conflating that into the national ratings numbers is (not to put too fine a point on it) bull&hit. Of course if one pits the NBA local numbers against the NHL local numbers you are likely to get what happened in NY when the Rangers game went up against the pathetic Knicks team locally (only in Philly would the reverse probablyly happen).

    National ratings do NOT include local broadcast ratings; I think you’re desperate Matty LOL!!.
    Real Numbers are stubborn things Matt – the NHL has not yet broken a national rating of 1.6 million viewers for ANY game this playoff – deal with it!!! :)

    As for Pete …. what you gonna do with that pointy white hat and hood your grand-dad left you son? LOL!! :)

  • The End

    @Rocky89

    Her statement reflects what I’ve been saying on here for ages now. Neither cancelled or renewed, neither dead or alive. Mearly purgatory.

    With Goldsmiths passing, they’l need to reuse some old soundtracks, or hire someone else to do the music.

  • SarahL

    @Pete

    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.

    I still don’t get what you are trying to say and I am trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here because there was absolutely no reason to bring up the ethnicity of fans of either sport in this context. We all know that the NHL has always had a predominately white fan base. The NHL fanbase is not close to being as diverse as the NBA, NFL, or MLB. So what exactly are you claiming that the NHL “catching up” on the NBA on demographically?

  • sdf

    any ratings for the reunion/finale of RuPaul’s Drag RAce?

  • E.S.

    Those are awful numbers for “The Pitch.” AMC plans on replaying the first two episodes a few times this week. I think they can break out one of their old Chuck Norris movies and get more viewers.

  • Hades

    yay SPN making the list.

  • DW

    @ torrid. this is the numbers that they should be. below a 2.0 is a bad number for a playoff or even a regular season game. and NHL has always had bad numbers.

  • James Klatt

    The Thunder/Mavericks Monday playoff game also received a 9.5 share on FSN Oklahoma.

  • Turtle

    Anyone have any numbers on the finale of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Monday night? Just wondering if a fair amount of twitter/facebook and media buzz translated into actual numbers.

  • Pete

    @SarahL: Well I guess i don’t get either what you are trying to say. I’m bringing up ethnicity because it is used by Nielsen and advertisers. You’re all comparing the NBA and the NHL on a total viewers basis and that’s ok. But you can also compare the two in each demographic group (young people, men, women, white, black, asian, high-income households,…).

    Let’s take a look at the numbers again (for the 7pm game):

    NBA PLAYOFFS- ROUND 1 L TNT 07:09 PM 4.373 2.0
    NHL SEMI FINALS L NBCSN 07:30 PM 1.533 0.7

    I don’t have the exact numbers for these playoffs games but the demographic breakdown for most regular season games looked a lot like this:

    NBA viewership: 50% blacks, 25% white, 20% hispanic, 5% others
    NHL viewership: 90% white, 4% black, 4% hispanic, 2% others

    Let’s apply these percentage to our 2 games:

    -In the black demographic:
    NBA game: 2,186,500 black viewers
    NHL game: 61,320 black viewers

    -In the white demographic:
    NBA game: 1,093,250 white viewers
    NHL game: 1,379,700 white viewers

    -In the hispanic demographic:
    NBA game: 874,600 hispanic viewers
    NHL game: 61,320 hispanic viewers

    What does this mean:

    -If you are an advertiser and your main target is African American households, then the NBA game is the most interesting program for you to put your ad.

    -If you are an advertiser and you main target is white households, then the NHL looks just as interesting for you as the NBA.

  • Rachel

    Not surprised with MIOBI low ratings. People stop watching when they know a show is cancelled.

  • Matt

    I’m begging to think Torrid spins a wheel to decide what he wants to talk about.

    What we do know is that he doesn’t want to talk about attendance or revenue at all. Or about the fact that NBCSN is available to a limited audience. He likes to stay away from those topics. :)

  • Justin Poppiti

    Torrid, what is your malfunction? I watch the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB. And, I’m white. Stop your race-baiting.

  • Rocky89

    @The End

    Goldsmith didn’t make the music on the show.

  • Torrid

    Ah Justin – the old hockey-fan dodge “I watch everything… I like all sports …or something like that” when your favorite little sport gets owned and you have no comeback; give it a rest dude, I know you already :)

    Race baiting? maybe you’re confusing me with Pete dude.

    Now Back to STATS:
    Tuesday Ratings (I know, I know its a whalloping for hockey again LOL!!!)
    ————————————————————————–
    Ok i’ll comment on the Tuesday Cable ratings page – see how kind I am guys? anyhow just so you know:-
