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.

    Royal Pains is really starting to stagnate. The season opener was just another installment in a storyline involving Jill Flint’s character allegedly leaving. This story has been slowly unfolding for at least the past two seasons. That’s similar to the glacial pace at which plots on most daytime soaps unfold. This show is showing its age and I hope the writers come up with some fresh material soon.

  • Bob

    Wow. NCIS was the second most watched show. That is amazing. Yep it still got a .08 which is pretty good too for a repeat that has been seen a thousand times. People love NCIS and CBS….I know it was on USA but they love both networks. I am so impressed with Royal Pains too.

  • disney rocks

    Melissa and Joey should be moved to Sunday at 8,

  • mArS

    Some comparisons for the most important shows would be nice. Like Royal Pains. i know the ratings for cable series don’t matter as much, but most cable shows are better than those on Broadcast nets, so I always felt bad there’s almost no synopsis for the ratings

  • Samuel Adams

    “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.”

    No one’s “looking for it.” This is the kind of show people watch because they’re bored and they can’t think of anything else to do.

  • Survivor Fan

    Does anybody know how Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America did?

  • MikeRand

    I love watching “Melissa & Joey.” It’s a great funny sitcom. Wednesdays is a competitive night. Even though it’s repeats on the networks, it’s the same audience. ABC should air reruns of the first season or same week on Friday or Saturday nights to bring exposure to it so viewers can watch it just like they did with “Kyle XY” back in the day.

  • Ferny

    Heat vs Celtics game 7 ratings will have big numbers, I’m guessing 11-11.5 million. Also, if the Thunder and Heat end up in the finals that’ll have huge numbers as well.

  • david

    I love Mellisa and Joey too. It is a really funny show. I agree they ABC should repeat the show to expose more people to it. I have been a fan of Mellisa Joan Heart ever since The Teen Witch show.

  • EC08

    Hank Med 2.0 need to be thrown into the trash. Let us know when it is gone and I’ll start watching again.
