The premiere of Dallas was the top cable program Wednesday night with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. The number two cable original was Royal Pains which earned a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 1.0 last week.

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 Operation Repo.

    Melissa & Joey is holding steady.

  • ROB

    Million Dollar Listing was amazing last night!

  • TNT

    Dallas premiered high that’s good cause it will go down next week most shows go down after their first week.

  • Max

    Horrible start for the way over-promoted DALLAS.

  • Mr Mikey

    Wow no espn Wednesday night baseball? Baseball really is behind basketball as the #3 professional sport.

  • EatMorePez

    Will the people who tuned into Dallas last night for the nostalgia factor be back for more? It will be interesting to see how the show holds up over the next few weeks.

  • 4evercool

    @ Mr Mikey. Ya Wednesday and sunday night baseball never make the list id like to see what the numbers are.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    Weds Night baseball starting at 7p ET averaged 956,000 viewers and a 0.3 A18-49 rating. FYI last Sunday night’s ESPN’s game Detroit/Cincinatti DID make the list in the Sunday night post (1.889 million and a 0.6 A18-49 rtg).

  • jamandas

    I didn’t watch Dallas till this afternoon and I really enjoyed it. Will watch next week for sure.

  • Anonymous Coward

    The first episode of Dallas premiered well with a 1.5, but there were two episodes on last night. The second episode only got a 0.6. That’s a pretty severe drop, isn’t it?

  • silvit

    @Anonymous Coward
    The 0.6 is the repeat of the 2h premiere, not the second episode.

  • joss

    1 mill soccer fans lol

    Dallas sux

  • Paulo PT

    I believe the second was a repeat… 9pm and 11:14 indicates that!

  • Aerilyn

    Melissa and Joey steady as a rock and UP in viewers. That’s pretty good, and I hope it keeps it up so ABC Family can renew it!

  • Kaylie

    Changes need to be made to Americas Best Dance Crew. No reason why a live season finale should have those numbers. Last years live season finale had 2.5 million viewers.

  • RG-X

    I am floored by the huge Dallas ratings – wow? Puzzled!

  • Max

    It is truly amazing how the entire internet is trying to spin DALLAS as having done well last night. So many sites keep reporting the numbers as they are but using labels like “hit”, “smash”, “great”, etc…

    And of course, people are eating it up and thinking it is all true. If only these people knew the reality of the situation.

    The total viewers are not great and the demo is low. The show skews old and many other previous TNT dramas have done better. Even a few have done better recently. Considering these starting numbers, the chance the show falls to even worse numbers are high.

    A real shame this is being labeled a hit by the media when it is quite the opposite.

  • Dillan

    Melissa and Joey holding up well.

    Dallas did pretty good.

  • rob60990

    I was hoping we would see separate ratings for the 2 Dallas episodes.

  • peter

    Again, Soccer beat MLB. That’s a real shocker considering it’s a competition that doesn’t even concern the USA or Latin American.
