The NBA Playoffs were again at the top of the cable leaders from last night, earning a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating at 10:49 and a 1.6 at 8:08PM. Swamp People was the night's top cable original, with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 1.5.

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 Ax Men

    Ouch for Pauly D and Punk’d.

    I really hope MTV renew Punk’d for another season. I think it’s been really good this season. As for Pauly D, I wouldn’t mind if it gets cancelled, but I don’t mind it. Something to watch while waiting for Snooki and JWoww’s show and for the new season of Jersey Shore, I guess.

  • Bee

    kathy :( it better not get cancelled!

  • gapcity

    I said it before and I’ll say it again – MTV in trouble. .5 for Punk’d at 10 on Thursday?
    All shows, all week, all month, are down.

  • Liz Cappon

    Pauly D Project was shot forever ago I thought, so I dont think it was expected to return anyway? I figured it was kinda a one off? Pauly D needs to be with Vinny in order to really showcase his hilarity, Vinny is just a great straight man for him. I for see a show with them in the future.
    I love Kathy Griffin but this show is really struggling to keep my attention– how have they not even ditched that terrible theme song yet?

  • xwiseguyx

    Sorry, but the Theme Song is the best thing about Kathy…

  • Lyndsy Fonseca is Sexy

    CHARLIE SHEEN 6.28.12

  • Rocky

    Good to see Impact Wrestling back up against stiff competition.

    Kobe still bringing in the numbers on TNT. The NBA is going to hurt with the Chicago Bulls gone now.

  • Jared

    Bravo should cancel KATHY..its ratings are laughable..air repeats of housewives or an encore of Kims show..

  • Jason

    Wow, Kathy’s ratings are horrid. I love her, but her show just isn’t working in it’s current format.

  • msupdate

    MTV’s struggling right now. As gapcity said. All shows no matter time, day or month are down. The previously high rated Punk’d and 16 & Preg. have fallen so far. Not to mention Jersey Shore. I still see a renewal for Punk’d though, but I’m not so sure about Pauly D. Things not looking so good there especially when the momentum seems like it will carry it possibly down to a .4 with fewer than 1 million viewers in the remaining episodes.

  • Eddie

    MTV needs to bring beavis and butthead back at 10 on thursdays, it was doing better ratings.

  • Sandra Oh

    Wedding keeps on chugging along while Kathy is DOA. I never really like Kim Z on the Housewives but I’m enjoying her in Wedding. Go figure.

  • Ryan

    If Kathy had celebrities she would have better ratings. People want to see Kathy face to face with celebs.

  • Sonny G

    It looks like nobody wants to see skanky Kathy reguardless

  • RHONJd

    D-D-DON’T BE TARDY FOR THE WEDDING!

  • RHONJd

    Pretty good for Dont Be Tardy, of course it isnt gonna bring “ATL Housewives numbers” but it is doing well. Kathy is doing bad :( and Im really enjoying the show though. Punk’d is a great show and deserves better!!! AND MTV better not renew Pauly D, it is an awful show. I hope Snooki & JWoWW is better.
    Follow me on twitter @rhonjd :) thanks!

    He may be gone but he gave people years of inspiration he will never ever be forgotten.
