The NBA Playoffs:  Conference Finals was the most-watched program on cable last night, earning a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49. Swamp People was the number two program, earning a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49, up from last week's 1.3.

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 The Pauly D Project.

    At least Pauly D grew in viewers. I’m sure next week it will up in the demo as Britney Spears is on it.

    No Punk’d again? I’ve really liked it this season. Oh well.

    It’s nice to see a repeat of Falling Skies get a 0.6. Love that show, very excited for the new season to start.

  • bb

    Wow at Don’t be Tardy for the wedding 2 million and then 800000 for the 1130 encore a total of 2.8 million, that’s amazing that everyone wanted to see Kim without her wig and I’m sire bravo is very impressed with these numbers for a spin off. Go Kim, hopefully the ratings go even higher for the finale next week.

  • Oliver

    TBS will be happy with Men at Work’s ratings.

  • Bryan S

    Surprised that SA vs OKC viewership was not higher. I expected somewhere in the mid to upper 7M range, especially considering Miami vs Boston has been in the upper 8′s.

  • Ram510

    Nice to see Men at Work still at least at a 1.0! It’s a really good show and deserves to stay above a 1.0+

  • TatiG

    @Brin S
    OKC = Small Market
    SA = Small Market

    it’s actually impressive IMO. 1mil people in SA, 0.8mil people in Oklahoma. :)

  • RHONJd

    DBTFTW will most likely get renewed, and Kim will probably leave RHOA after season 5. Just a guess.

  • The End

    I see Falling Skies on that list, which reminds me. Not long now till Season 2 premieres. The wait has been agonising and is proof that TNT like HBO should just order 2 x 10 episode seasons of their shows(Game of Thrones, Falling Skies) instead of doing 1 season a year. A short hiatus between seasons beats waiting 10-11 months anyday.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    PUNK’D = 0.4 A18-49 rtg and 975,000 viewers.

  • The End

    @bb

    Everyone? These aren’t actual viewers. Just a number generated by Nielsen households who have tuned in.

    Anyway surprised people watch these shows to be honest, too much fakeness and playing to the camera. I’m honestly surprised people see this as quality tv. Same with the Kardashian show, and others like Jersey Shore.

    Not one to question others taste in TV but these are the dreck of the reality tv genre :)

  • Mike

    LOL Impact

    They just can’t catch a break in their ten years. All these restarts, all these biggest shows ever, and the ratings never move.

  • msupdate

    It’ll be interested to see what MTV does with Punk’d and ABDC when decision time comes around.

    I would rather have seen Punk’d at 0.5 and 1.01 than Pauly D.

  • David

    The game was never really competitive last night and it seemed like the Spurs were going at a much slower pace. Pop will have them ready for Saturday and the game should be more competitive and ratings should be higher.

    Interested to see how hard the Celtics play tonight after how much they gave on Wednesday.

  • Fnbdave

    What about the premiere numbers for WE’s “L.A. Hair” ???

  • Person of Interest

    Men at Work is amazing, its so funny i will watch this show for life, i cant stop laughing at this show please renew it TBS.

  • Chris

    I’m surprised to see “Auction Kings” on Discovery so much higher than normal. Seems like a cheap rip-off of “Pawn Stars” to me, not nearly as likeable.

    I like “On The Fly” on TLC. It’s a shame it isn’t doing better.

  • Layfield

    SA/OKC’s ratings are impressive the track record for the Spurs in ratings has never been too good.

    Good to see Men at Work doing well for TBS.

    Thank god Pauly D was a complete flop!

    Seeing TNA’s ratings are depressing they were live and the episode was better than anything the WWE was putting out there. The problem is some WWE fans are so selfish to live with a really bad product instead of checking out the one the one that’s way better than it right now.

    I think TNA shouldn’t move up that early because the 10pm hour is crucial to driving up viewers.

  • OneWhoKnowsAll

    Didn’t Snookie and Jmann’s spinoff air Thursday night? I didn’t watch the show but it appears no one else did, either…just wondering

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @OneWho: you’re not living up to your name. That doesn’t premiere until June 21.

  • Eli

    OneWhoKnowsAll is sorta right, MTV aired a Snooki & Jwow special on Thursday (more like a recap of what already happened on the shore and a sneak peek into what’s to come)…in all cases the show is not on the list. I think they called the special Best Friends Forever
