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.

    WOW!! An early-morning repeat of “Married with Children” was in the top 100 shows! Pretty effin’ impressive, IMO!!!

  • Simon

    Futurama! Loved the Bender being a father episode, John brought yet another awesome performance! The animation on the second episode was some of the best they’ve ever done next to ”The Late Phillip J. Fry” episode last season, in fact, Futurama has some of the BEST ANIMATION ON TV period. Don’t know whether it is the Sci-Fi aspect of the show, this episode and the episode I mentioned above are stunning.

    @Ray
    Futurama will be around for a while as long as it keeps getting these numbers.

  • Jc

    Of course Dallas dropped. Ratings last week very excellent for cable but first week was always going to be a lot of folks checking it out because of the original. 4.7 million and just a 0.2 drop in the demo is darn good. I’m really enjoying it and as a fan of the original i have to say it’s got me hooked again. I think the numbers will stabilise just about 4m and TNT will be very happy with that’s. I’d say a renewal is a safe bet.

  • The Original J

    “The number two cable original was Royal Pains which earned a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 1.1 last week.”

    This sentence could have been proofread a bit better.

  • nick

    I predict that the soul man will probably lose 40% of their audience before their season is over. And the exes is just terrible………

    ugh can’t wait for Hot in Cleveland to be back. Hot in Cleveland got more views than the soul man, for their finale episode.

  • Rachel

    I was expecting Baby Daddy to flop. I enjoyed it and I’m glad it did well.

  • Jenny

    @Nick

    I tried getting into Hot in Cleveland, but I don’t find it all that funny.
    The Exes and Soul Man work way better imo.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Nick
    Any ratings for figure it out (7pm on Nickelodeon) and Hollywood Heights (9pm on nickelodeon) (:

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Baby daddy was pretty good so was Melissa and Joey…(:

  • MikeS

    Wednesday night baseball ratings Cardinals/Tigers please? I’m keeping record of all MLB games on ESPN and Fox

  • Eric

    I’m not sure if I’m comparing apples to apples but it seems to me that Dallas did better than several of the broadcast shows at 9pm. Is that a good sign?

  • MJDB

    Great for The Soul Man and The Exes. Two terrific shows! The Soul Man was a funny family sitcom, with love, faith, family, and of course soul! Will watch for the rest of the series. The Exes was fantastic last night! Had me in stitches throughout. Also notice that since Kelly Stables is pregnant, and they hadn’t written it in for episode 1, they had a book under her stomach, and her boobz got bigger.

  • Josh

    Nice to see that the key demo for “Dallas” didn’t drop too much. I’m curious to see what the Live+3 ratings are. I noticed last week it pushed “Dallas” from 6.9 million viewers to 7.8 milli8on viewers. Safe to say I think we’ll see season two announced any day now.

  • Dallasfan

    DALLAS is the best show on TV in 21 years. I’m rooting for it to stay #1 for its season.

  • Nick

    Yay at Melissa and Joey. That’s up 75%!!! Baby Daddy looks good, but I might only like it because I’m a sucker for family comedies. (:

  • shelly

    Renew Dallas now. I’m a fan. I hated to see the cable box display time at 9:59. Not watching anything else on TV except local news and weather. Ok I admit LMAO at a recent episode of Tosh…

  • Martin

    Dallas is sooo good, fills my Wednesday soap withdrawal ever since the first season of Revenge ended.

    Speaking as someone who is too young to remember the original, this show is so well written and so good. I think it should stabilise soon, it shouldn’t go below 4 million and 1.0.

    Baby Daddy is actually really funny, and i don’t like kids so wasn’t expecting to like it too much but really good, also Melissa And Joey was really funny.

    Loved The Exes last night, really funny. Not sure on the new opening song and titles plus where was Kelly Stables in the titles.

    Wasn’t too fond of The Soul Man, got bit bored to be honest but will give it a while and see if i like it more.

  • MakeItOrBreakItFan

    Melissa and Joey has reached the point where it has found its perfect comedy writing. I wonder if MJH’s pregnancy will stall the arrival of another season of new episodes.

    It was fun to see a grown up Tahj Mowry on “Baby Daddy.” I was puzzled by the choice of Chelsea Kane as the female lead. She seemed pretty one-dimensional and not overly attractive.

  • Jared

    Nice numbers for Melissa and Joey as well as Baby Daddy..nice little comedy block ABC FAMILY has on Wednesdays..

  • James

    While I enjoy Hollywood Heights, I am starting to think it may get it’s episode order cut…or maybe it burned off with 2 episodes a night? Then again, Nick isn’t that great at promotion…
