The NBA Playoffs were Tuesday's highest rated cable program, earning a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 at 10:49 and a 1.7 at 8:09. Deadliest Catch was the highest rated non-sports cable original, earning a 1.2 adults 18-49 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.

    I love how the old classic cartoon shorts of Looney Tunes(airing at 6 AM) beat out other shows in the A18-49 demo.

  • Ram510

    Ouch, The game is under 2 million. Hope it can bounce backIn its last few episodes of the season

  • chris

    Wow Real Housewives Of OC got pretty high numbers for all 3 airings, totalling 3.564 million total viewers, awesome!

  • Niel

    That’s a lot of people watching Looney Tunes at 6am in the morning. I think Cartoon Network should open up a block everyday where they start airing the old classics that they air on Boomerang now and that they used to air during their first 10 years on the air.

    I wonder how the Devils will impact the NHL ratings that have been so hot this season in the Eastern Conference.

    The NBA series are starting to get interesting now so numbers will start getting up to that next tier around 4-6 million viewers as the week concludes.

    Any info on how Dream Machines on Syfy did?

  • Joel
