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.

    6.96 Million total viewers for TNT is pretty impressive (Dallas’ total viewer ratings). I think saying it’s “not” a hit is pretty lame. NBC would KILL for a rating like that.

  • msupdate

    -Claps ABDC- Congrats on actually making the top 100. Last year you were constantly near the top. It’s getting repetitive and something needs to change. Live finale results at 1.15/0.5? Eww.

  • DonJ1973

    Anyone who thinks that Dallas’ numbers are disappointing needs to get their head checked. Almost 9M viewers combined for the night. Pretty good demo numbers and with DVR playback factored (which Turner does care about) your talking about possibly 10M viewers for the entire night.

  • DonJ1973

    NBC and The CW would kill to have ratings like that.

    Plus, I don’t think Dallas is a super expensive show either. There are state tax credits for Warner Brothers by shooting on location in Dallas. Plus, the series regular cast is relatively small.

  • One

    Have I mentioned yet how weak Wednesdays are? Where are the top tier cable hits you see on the other nights?…

  • Ram510

    I hope Melissa & Joey can get back to in the .6-.8 range, but glad its steady, it only 2 tenths away from Secret Life’s rating

  • SF

    I don’t understand all of the Dallas haters here!! The show did great! The epidode was what we all expected. The nostalgia factor was there and the new blood blended in with the old school folks.

    I don’t see it falling off very much from here. It’s a really good show!

  • Dean_W

    ‘Dallas’ will be Renewed for sure ! But I don’t understand if this Show is just a remake of the 1968′s one OR a all new Show based on the first.

  • Peter

    @Dean_W Remake , since the story continues and their history of the old show is mentiond in the show, so not a new show, but a remake / update.

  • Jared

    I’m glad to see Melissa & Joey holding up so well in the ratings even adding viewers this week…

  • Lisa

    @Dean, Dallas isn’t that old! It wasn’t on in 1968. @Peter, it is not a remake, either.

  • Dean_W

    @ Peter
    Thanks I wasn’t born for the first Show but this one is really good !

  • Jared

    As a huge ABDC fan..this season sucked!..MTV needs to revamp the show..add new judges..or something..the ratings this season have been dreadful..

  • Dean_W

    @ Lisa
    Sorry, it was 1978 (the First Show debuted on CBS on April 2, 1978 as a mini-series).

  • Craig

    “You suck, Dallas RULES!” – Bill Haverchuck, “Freaks and Geeks”

  • A

    Great. Ready for Melissa&Joey 3rd season announcement.

  • That Dude

    NBC would kill for a 1.5 rating? lol are you people that crazy? holy moly

    @Robert, it is Cincinnati, not Cincinatti

  • Dean_W

    After the new Series of ‘Hawaii Five-0′ in 2010 and ‘Dallas’ now, I’d like to see a ‘X-Files’ or a ‘E.R.’ remake (It’ll come in few years both Shows are not old enough to have a remake).

  • mike

    They can do an ER remake but in real life there is no such thing as an ER its now called an ED.

  • Dean_W

    @ mike
    Right but I’m still hoping. Everything is possible !
