Dallas was the top cable program Wednesday night with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating down 0.2 from last week's premiere. The number two cable original was Royal Pains which earned a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating down from a 1.1 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.

    Lol don’t worry, I saw. lol I guess now I should be saying the exes did pretty bad.

  • TimsDale4ever

    You should have put DALLAS firt since it had the most total viewers and TIED for the most in the 18-49 rating. Hello!!!!!!!!

  • Katrina

    Dallas didn’t drop by that much. It was rated pretty well. It is weird though, it seems like a segment of people are almost hoping for it to fail, for no specific reason. Before they even saw the first show. I withheld judgment, and so far I am rooting for it!

  • Tony

    The Soul Man definitely did very well for Tv land not having a lead-in, and boosting The Exes.Baby Daddy grew in total viewership out of M&J, and MJ increased as well. I’m sure ABC Family is happy.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Thank you Katrina!!!!!!!! Show ‘em DALLAS – we don’t need all these stupid reality shows that are EVERYWHERE on cable!

  • yankz

    Jeez! How does pardon the interruption always make these lists everyday at 5:30 while baseball can’t make it yet again in primetime? Baseball needs a major spark. They can’t get any decent regular season ratings. I mean, the NBA had at least 15 regular season games that were over 1.0 18/49. Baseball hasn’t had 1 all year.

  • Brian

    Baby Daddy had a good start it is a keeper.

  • jack

    The season 2 premiere of The Exes was hysterical.I found Soul Man a bit dull.Seems that the ratings should be the other way around for these two shows (and The Exes should be the lead in).

  • John A

    Big loss of viewers in Dallas. Demo good though. I liked it this week more than last.

  • RJ

    The comedy genre sure is making a comeback!

  • John A

    Wow alot of comments today. Wednesday usually a slow day on cable.

  • Dennis

    Dallas is still better than Falling Skies!

  • Max

    I’m not rooting for a DALLAS failure, seems like a decent enough show. I just don’t see it surviving very long on TNT. It doesn’t really fit the network and with the older viewers leaving despite having the old cast prominently featured and the young cast being relatively weak, I think the show will continue to go down weekly. That being said, I’m not sure what TNT would be happy with in terms of renewing the show.

  • Robert

    I’m rooting for Dallas because JR is so f–king unPC!!! Kind of like Shatner’s character on Boston Legal. An old fart who hates this namzie…panzie world…!!

    Rob

  • jack

    I enjoyed Dallas.It was nice to see Cliff Barnes battle JR like the old days (but Ken Kercheval aged much worse then Larry Hagman)

  • silvit

    @Max
    I think TNT will be happy with average to good numbers for the networks about Dallas’ ratings. It sells well internationally, something that many TNT shows have a trouble doing, except for Falling Skies and The Closer, which is ending (wasn’t this one of the reasons why Saving Grace was canceled?)and anything above 1 is great for TNT.

  • Leon

    Hope Baby Daddy holds cause the show was funnier than I expected!

  • DCIBlobby

    I guess a lot of people were looking in on Dallas during week 1 just to see what it was gonna be like. It’s sorta amazing that with such a large chunk of the audience walking away, the demo still only dips 0.2. I’d say that’s pretty strong. This week’s show was again quite enjoyable as well.

  • Jenny

    If I’m not mistaken that’s a season high in total viewers for Melissa & Joey.

  • panda22

    I thought Baby Daddy was brutal and unfunny!…..i just don’t like the silly premise, stupid babies. M&J was hillarious last night!

    LOL @ the inside joke aimed at MJH and her Dancing With The Stars apperance….brilliant swipe at MJH! :D
