There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

  • TatiG

    NBA was like, shall we say BIG?

  • Robert Pt

    WOW NBA!, 13.3 million on a Saturday, that is 800k away from the record of a tv show on cable of ANY KIND, again on a SATURDAY. Kudos Heat and Celtics, and NBA.

  • disney rocks

  • Kaylie

    Theres a new Good Luck Charlie episode where they pick the new babys name airing at 7:30 leading into Let it Shine.

  • I luv Nickelodeon

    @DisneyRocks
    I find it unfair how there was game during the premiere of Rags. It messed up there ratings.. Anyways I hope let it shine bombs cuz their music isn’t as good.. O and Nickelodeon will always have the better programming, and music..! I just don’t see how people would watch Disneys live action shows they r just awful..! I also can’t believe that NICKs sat new episodes were not so good. They were one of the best. I hope NICKS ratings increase a lot better and Disney decreases..!!
    1. Nickelodeon (The BEST)
    2. Cartoon Network
    3. Nicktoons Network
    4. Boomerang
    5. Teennick
    6. Disney :p (SUCKS)

    Not even close. “Hatfields & McCoys Part 3″ was the highest for a scripted, non-ad supported program. I believe the *all-time* record is something like 28 million for a BCS National Championship Game.

  • Silvio

    Out of those 13.346 millions Game 7 viewers, there was 7.142 million adults 18-49. That’s 5.6 A18-49 rating. I think it trails only BCS Championship (8.7 A18-49 Live+SD) among basic cable telecasts in 2012 so far.
    Rose Bowl was 5.5 and The Walking Dead season finale 4.7, no?

  • hi

    @I luv Nickelodeon
    are you like a little kid or what? nicks ratings are low because their shows/movies suck and no one wants to watch em. oooh increases and decreases you say…baby math. and music from let it shine is no good cuz its rap and little kids like you dont like it? hah.

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    How the heck did Spongebob not make it AGAIN 2 WEEKS!!!

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    @hi Nickelodeon Rules Disney SUCKS!! GO Victorious
