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.

NBA Basketball dominated cable TV last night, topping the night with a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating at 9:43 and a 1.9 at 7:09. A new Duck Dynasty was first in non-sports programming with a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

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 South Beach Tow.

    Total Blackout keeps growing! Syfy has to renew this hilarious show! And the ratings are so low at 1030 because it was an encore. Nonetheless, it keeps growing each week! :)

  • The End

    @RJ

    It’l be renewed, no question.

  • BJH

    Please post Happily Divorced numbers if you can find them. Thanks.

    Also, loved the Hot in Cleveland behind-the-scenes episode. Hysterical.

  • Kaylie

    ABDC deserves so much better than what theyre getting. MTV needs to promote the show as much as they promote Jersey Shore and the others.

  • heavann

    Kaylle– I TOTALLY agree!!

  • One

    Seriously? Top rated cable program (excluding sports) can’t even break a 1? Wednesdays are weak. I don’t get it…

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    HAPPILY DIVORCED = 0.2 A18-49 rtg and 981,000 viewers

  • Chris

    How can Storage Wars repeat so well over and over? They’re always the same episodes, there aren’t THAT many. I got sick of it weeks ago.

  • baja7475

    Does anybody know how “Locked up Abroad” ratings are. It’s a great show!

  • Dylan Bryant

    SOLD! airs on the History Channel at 11:01 EST and “Hardcore History” is named in its time slot. This has to be a typo, same scenario for last week!

  • xwiseguyx

    Slow start for Around The World in 80 Plates…

  • guy

    I would say Bravo is really disappointed in Plates showing.

    It must have been an expensive production unless it was mostly paid for by on-air brands.

  • JR35

    I take it that TV Land has yet to renew Hapily Divorced for a fourth season as of yet?

  • nick

    Happily divorced is still in their 2nd season so a 4th season renewal ( if there will be one ) will probably happen next year. But Hot in Cleveland was renewed for a 4th season in like January.

  • JR

    Oops- I meant a third season for Happily Divorced. :)
