The NBA Conference finals (Spurs/Thunder) on TNT were the number one program of the night with a 4.1 adults 18-49 rating. The CMT Music Awards came in second with a 1.1 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 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 Fast N Loud.

    Wow, the hockey game got 2 million viewers. That’s pretty good for the NBC Sports Network and bodes well for them when they air the Olympics this summer.

    NBA destroyed everything. No surprise.

  • Dillan

    Oh dear Melissa and Joey :( Do you know what it got at 8:30PM? I’m hoping it stayed over a million.

    Things aren’t looking too good for ABC Family. The only show that’s doing well for them is PLL.

    I can’t believe a repeat of Falling Skies which came on at 12:46 AM is the 16th top rated show!

  • Max

    Hot In Cleveland has such bizarre ratings. I still have no clue what target demo they look at but in terms of the A18-49 and the viewer total, the show seems to go from a 0.5 to a 0.2 and back up again on almost a weekly basis.

  • xwiseguyx

    Well last night was the Season Finale for Hot In Cleveland so guessing that had something to do with it.

    Thought Bravo would have a better night with Million Dollar Listing returning..

  • Carmen

    Good to see Royal Pains come back reasonably strong after the layoff.
    Hopefully, it will improve a bit as the season progresses and people get used to looking for it again.

  • Anon

    Wow! Hot in Cleveland went up biiiig. And it got more viewers than its premiere.

  • Grey

    “Royal Pains” and “Necessary Roughness” did pretty good considering. Beating the NBA finals is tough for any show or special. It would be interesting to see NBA finals, an “American Idol” finale, “The Voice” finale, and maybe a “Two and a Half Men” finale (featuring the return of Charlie Sheen) all go head to head. LOL!

  • Anon

    (back in November)

  • MJDB

    Wow! Great numbers for Hot in Cleveland and Happily Divorced. Also, I would like to add to Happily Divorced fans that last night wasn’t the season finale, because TV Land ordered 12 additional episodes to season 2 that will start in November. More like going on hiatus than a season finale. Last night was Hot in Cleveland’s season finale though.

  • Tony

    too bad for Melissa and Joey, but those ratings are still decent. It’s got to be cheap to produce. I wonder what the 8:30 episode got.

    Wow at Falling Skies repeats! almost one in the morning and it got a .8! It will be interesting to see how it rates for its second season premiere. I bought the blu-ray and will be catching up before it starts as I have never seen an episode before! I’m excited heard good things about it!

    Hot in Cleveland and Happily Divorced saw bumps!

    The Big Bang Theory and Friends repeat great for TBS and Nick at Nite respectively.

  • rob60990

    Nice for TV Land comedies. Both way up from last week.

    Royal Pains looks really down.

    Wow a .8 for a Falling Skies rerun.

  • JR

    That’s a great rating for the last game of the Thunder/Spurs. Thunder did a great job winning 4 games in a row after being down 2-0 in the series. These numbers are much better than the Thunder/Mavs western conference finals last year. Oh and neither the Celtics nor the Heat can beat the Thunder. Kevin Durant best player in basketball right now

  • Jared

    I really love Melissa and Joey..I hope the ratings stay stable throughout the season to warrant a renewal..its such a funny show..especially on a night where there’s not much on tv.

  • Sean

    GO NICKELODEON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KICKING DISNEY’S BUTT.

  • JR

    The best thing about the Thunder(other than talent), is the youth. All their star players are under 25 years old. They will be competing for the title for the next 7-10 years

  • jordan

    Falling Skies is a terrible show. It’s the bad version of The Walking Dead and has aliens instead of zombies. It has the huge NBA game ratings leading into it. That’s why the show is doing so well in repeats.

  • TatiG

    Thunder v. Spurs killed. First time we say Spurs in the same sentence as good ratings.

  • greenf

    @jordan: Falling Skies is a great show. And it did 5 million viewers all on his own last summer and against tough competition like True Blood.

  • David

    “Celtics nor the Heat can beat the Thunder”

    This was basically the NBA finals. I wanted the Spurs to win because I have been a fan for so long, but we had chances and KD could not miss. We lost close games, but at the end of the day KD just cannot be stopped. The Spurs were the only team that could stop them and now they are out of the way.

    I loves the players on the Celtics too much and know they will fight if they win tonight, so I would not expect the Thunder to win without a fight. But, the Thunder will probably still win in 5 or 6.

  • TheLyingGameFan

    Melissa and Joey is a wonderful “throw-back” show to the days of TGIF – with a 21st century twist. I think the writing is the best it’s ever been this season. ABC Family needs to get more episodes cranked out in order to increase the viewership via syndication – like the TBS model.(Yes, I know MJH is pregnant).

    I agree that ABC Family’s failure to be proactive and capitalize on the post-finale internet buzz concerning “The Lying Game’s last episode will be fatal for this show.
