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.

    pretty good for Melissa and Joey. Hopefully Baby Daddy can do decent next Wednesday and maybe it will help M&J by giving it a companion. I can’t wait to check it out. I heard it’s great. Melissa and Joey on the other hand is hilarious, just a show that makes you laugh and gets your mind off of your everyday life, exactly what a comedy should do.

  • QU347

    PPL on here acting as if it’s not summer and not alot of parties jump off, we all recorded Dallas on DVR and watched it this morning while laying next to the one we banged end of story.

  • Evanmav

    Dallas did pretty well and for TNT it did really good. As long as it stays above a 1.0 TNT will be very happy. But DAMN Dallas skews so old! 7 million viewers and only a 1.5 in the 18-49 demo is not good at all. I’m guessing the viewership might drop drastically since a lot of old Dallas fans might have checked this out and I’m hoping the demo stays relatively the same. I enjoyed the premiere a lot and see potential in the show! Never saw the original but heard great things about it. Probably never would have checked the show out otherwise

  • Energy

    People clearly don’t know how to analyze the cable ratings a lot of these people who thinks this was a bad number for Dallas don’t understand cable ratings at all. Do they realize this would be a high number for NBC especially in viewers now in days.

    This was a great start for Dallas and the repeat number at 11pm was even better because a lot of those people were probably new viewers so this is actually like 9 million viewers for the premiere.

    @Tony

    I saw the pilot on demand, and it was okay. Definitely has a lot of room to grow, but there were some touching moments.:)

  • RHONJd

    Hey! I know it’s hard to get ratings when it isn’t from 8-11, but considering you got the first two episodes, do you have the ratings for Figure it Out on Nick? Thank you :) :)

  • JT

    I wasn’t able to watch Dallas until tonight, and I must say I found it to be great. I watched just out of curiosity, but will be back for more!

  • alpha

    Dallas 6863 1.5
    Family Guy 2860 1.3

    Comparing these numbers, Dallas skews old as I was expecting.

    I don’t like soap opera so much, I like comedy.
    If they kill off Bobby and later it reveals to be in Brenda Strong’s dream, I will watch Dallas.

  • Dean_W

    The Pilot of ‘Dallas’ looks like the pilot of ‘Ringer’. The first Episode is full of secrets, betrayal and ends on a kinf of “cliffhanger”.
    I hope it’ll have a long Life on TNT.

  • Dodge_hickey

    6.8 for TnT…..very nice!

  • Energy

    It took TNT 24 years but they finally got their super international hit in Dallas.

  • Mary

    Max

    Dallas had the highest demo of the night. So that mean every single show benieath it had lousy numbers?

  • Sean

    Where’s Nick with the “Figure it out” Ratings??

  • Chuck

    Myself…I thought Dallas was fantastic. Yes I was a fan of the original but..the blend was what I thought made it great. Of the new group, I particularly enjoyed Josh and Jordana…and next week..we get the legendary Cliff Barnes back. The writing was sharp, and the ratings for a cable show…were well beyond average. I expect to see this show last a very long time!

  • jRobnyc

    I’m glad Dallas did well, it’s good to see that the format is not dead, enough of reality shows please. Btw I understand people commenting a lot on Dallas, what puzzled me was the interest many people had on Joey and Melissa, why? But I’m glad they still have fans.

    LMAO, so many were saying DALLAS’s numbers were soooooooo bad. Ok, it landed at NUMBER 1 at the top of 100 cable shows (out of a total of what, a 1000 cable shows?) not only in total viewers but also in the 18-49 category. TNT is VERY HAPPY with these results. Some people have to be so NEGATIVE about EVERYTHING!!

  • Mike

  • Sean

    “Figure it out” is still doing an amazing job! GO NICKELODEON!

  • SG

    Dallas was fun to watch. They did a nice job of not making it seems like a pilot and trying to introduce new characters in an awkward way. Enjoyed both hours and am looking forward to next week. Lots of eye candy too!
