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.

    I wonder how Falling Skies will do on Sunday?

    Higher or lower then season 1?

  • HT

    The Dynasty cast were all all a little older – John Forsythe is dead and Joan Collins is in her 80’s – Linda Evans doesn’t look like herself anymore – it would be a tough thing to pull off. I have to say, Dallas always held well with a much smaller cast and seem to have continued on that path. Linda Gray – what’s her secret? Who’s her surgeon – not stretched at all – looks great for almost 73!

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    Did anyone else notice Spongebob and Fairly Odd Parents make the 18-49 Demographic every day even though they’re kid shows

  • xwiseguyx

    Nice pop for Million Dollar Listing – surprised 80 plates hasn’t picked up any momentum…

  • coolioni

    Dallas sucks. Its mostluy watched by old people. Look at the 18-49 demo…With a Live rating close to 7 million it only has 1.5 million in the very important 18-49 demo.
    Most shows will get that many in the 18-49 group with only about 3 million viewers.
    Who wants to watch a few washed up old farts on T.V anyways ?

  • FiddleStickxFiddler

    I really wasn’t intending to watch Dallas, but now that I have, I kinda love it. Loads of potential.

  • FiddleStickxFiddler

    “With a Live rating close to 7 million it only has 1.5 million in the very important 18-49 demo”

    A 1.5 18-49 demo score doesn’t mean 1.5 million 18-49 year old viewers, does it?

  • Delores

    We, as Texans, loved it! First as entertainment, then as a boost for the creative arts in the state. The cinematography is breath-taking and would have not been the same as a back-lot production. A classy production.

  • Steven Day

    Hey Max…you’re clearly not a Dallas fan but TNT has already won because you’re TALKING ABOUT IT. That’s what they want! Good press, bad press…it doesn’t matter. Both sides will continue to boost the show’s notoriety and prominence. And until Larry Hagman kicks the bucket…look for this show to have another good run. Just sayin’!

  • MBmomof3

    @Nickelodeon rules, Spongebob & Fairly Odd Parents are just plain funny and creative. Love shows I can watch with my kids that are fun and no uncomfortable moments. Those shows are few & far between, unfortunately.

  • Jeff

    Just watched Dallas last night. It was good, not great. Will keep tuning in to see where it goes. Loved seeing JR, Bobby, and Sue Ellen. Poor Charlene Tilton looked like crap warmed up from being picked up on the sidewalk after a brutal winter. Jordana Brewster, not a very talented actress, nor is other chic Christopher married, but the rest of the cast was fine. Here’s hoping they bring back some of JR and Bobby’s other kids.

  • Janie

    I am not puzzled at all by the success of the show Dallas. Was very good in its day and some of the original older actors were back and then with the new ones to do the younger back stabbing, lol, it was pretty good. And whoever said it is a show of washed up old foggies is off base because the main stars are a younger group. And to Jeff, JR and Bobby only had one kid each, so would be hard to bring back some of their “other” kids, lol, unless they make up some long lost kids that were from affairs or such. TNT is a small network so the fact it did that well, is pretty good to me.

  • sal

    dallas did great. back in the day it was the ultimate primetime drama. im 42 and the other night i watched with my mom. it was cool to see the heart of the old show stand: homage to the land, homage to miss ellie – the old matriarch — but showing the legacy of family in the younger characters — just like in real life, the younger generation takes over. but it still had tremendous twists (jr still being his old self — not weak at all –trying to dupe over his family) and his son — the apple not falling far from the tree. it was enough to hold this longtime faithful dallas supporter — i cant wait til week 2. bottomline though — it was entertaining as hell and that’s the benchmark of any show whether it premieres in 1977 and stays on for 13 seasons of if it premieres in 2012.

  • sal

    and another thing to younger viewers — dont go into dallas thinking its an old fogey show without giving it a chance. it is much better than most of the crap that fills tv today. producers of tv these days should go back and see what was on in the 70s and 80s and learn how to do tv right…especially when it comes to sitcoms. snooki???? kardashians? please.
