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 Evil, I.

    Hope Fairly Legal wasn’t the series finale. It is preforming better than Common Law in Total viewers. I think it just needs another timeslot, ie not fridays during the spring when USA only has one other original series on to promote it during.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Dang, a repeat of DALLAS is STILL in the top 100. Awesome!

  • Jenna

    Zach, I agree! Fairly Legal is a great show! They won the night in ratings last week and were down just 1 tenth this week so I am reeeeally hoping that we get a season 3…especially with a cliffhanger like that, such a great set up for season 3! I agree that it is in a bad timeslot/night, but I hope (and would expect) that USA is taking that into account.

  • John A

    A 1.0 wins the night? That is pathetic.

  • Katie101

    WWE Smackdown on 6/15 scored a 1.75 rating, averaging 2,411,000 viewers.

    On cable TV Friday night, Smackdown ranked #5 in overall viewers, #1 among males 18-34 & males 18-49, and #2 in its time period in younger male viewers, which was likely the result of Disney Channel premiering a new movie Friday night.

  • Kevin

    Any numbers on Figure it out????????

  • Kaylie

    Im so glad with Disneys Let it Shine ratings. :)

  • Kaylie

    LOL! A 10:00am airing of Phineas and Ferb beat Spongebob which aired at the same time. Disney should start airing animated movies after their preschool line-up. :)

  • Kevin

    Kaylie, LOOK AT SPONGEBOB’S NUMBERS AFTER THAT AIRING!

  • Nick

    A Family Guy repeat beat everything on cable and broadcast except for Dateline and ABC’s Megastunts special. :-(

  • Nick

    ^@11:30, no less. Sad.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    Figure It Out 8p = 0.3 A18-49 rtg & 1.767m viewers
    ” 8:30: 0.4 A18-49 rtg and 1.577m viewers

    9p Hollywood Heights encore = 0.2 A18-49 rtg and 620,000 viewers

  • RHONJd

    Seidman, do you have Figure it Out ratings at 7 pm, which was the mew episode? I know it’s hard to get ratings from that time, but just wondering if you the ratings for it? Thank you :)

  • RHONJd

    ^*new not mew. Sorry…

  • RHONJd

    Both Nickelodeon and Disney did great on Friday. Its definitely gonna be a close race with total viewers for the week, but I have hope for Disney, and no matter what, Disney won this week again with K6-11, T9-14, and most likely K2-11! Yay Disney. And great numbers for GLC, LIS, and GF!

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @RHON: no. if a show doesn’t make the 100 list we don’t see anything but “primetime” in our secondary source.

  • RJ

    Hollywood Heights fell from its lead in, but it did increase from the actual new episode on Monday. I wonder how it’ll do tonight. I predict poorly, but it’ll be interesting to see.

  • Ram510

    Why happened to Smackdown? It used to be getting a 1.0+

    Common Law needs to be cancelled

    Those are great repeat numbers for Fairly OddParents. They need to have more originals on a consistent basis

  • miles silverberg

    Does Real Time with Bill Maher ever crack the list? Any numbers for it?

  • tj

    Common Law is getting better. It inched up a bit, just give it time. I like it, nothing breakout, but it fits well with USA and will get watched.
