WWE Smackdown was Friday's top cable original, earning a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, up three tenths from an 0.7 last week. Common Law was the number two cable original with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, up from an 0.6 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 Friday's  episode of Say Yes to the Dress.

    OMG, the ultimate ratings war concludes tomorrow! We will finally find out which came out on top (Korra or Charlie!?!)! So excited which channel will the win week, and GLC and Korra ratings! Yay!

    P.S. Great Friday for Disney! Jessie is coming back!

  • RHONJd

    BTW, Even though I am a huge supporter of Disney Channel, I will admit that Nick has better singers. However, I think Disney has better actors, actresses, shows, and movies. I think Cymphonique, Max, Victoria, Elizabeth, and Ariana are the best singers on Nick. But China McClain and her sisters are really good too, and of course Coco Jones. She is truly fantastic, and she is great live too, like in the video Kaylie showed. I think Zendaya and Bridgit Mendler are pretty good too.

  • The End

    Baffles me why Insane or Inspired is in that timeslot after Smackdown, it defys all logic and clearly could be seen as the network trying to ignore the fact it has pretty much failed with this show.

    Season finale is this Friday and I seriously doubt Comcast will allow them to produce more. That said I’ve seen worse rated reality shows come back so I wouldn’t be surprised.

    I mean, Destination Truth another Josh Gates show is unlikely to ever be cancelled, nor will Ghost Hunters or Fact or Faked regardless of the numbers.

    I think fans would be happier with another season of Sanctuary in Insane or Inspireds timeslot but alas, wasn’t to be.

  • Duncey

    Finally Smackdown got back up in the ratings it looks like the GM stuff has people interested in a very bad product right now.

    Common Law is doing better than expected for USA but it needs a proven lead-in. I hope USA puts Common Law together with Psych.

  • JJ.

    & not all of them have to be good at singing because Disney shows are not based on singing like it was in the past. And nicks shows are mostly singing shows

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    I’ve been supporting Nickelodeon since the 90′s (All that, The Amanda Show etc.. @Rhon That’s what’s called good ACTING. Most shows today (both on Nickelodeon and on Disney have horrible shows. If you want to go see GOOD acting and not this kiddy music show crap or whatever, watch 90′s shows.

  • John A

    Rickey Gervais show doing awful. I assume its dead as Life and times of tim is cancelled with simillar ratings.

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    But sadly, most of you were born (it seems) in the early 2000′s so you guys don’t know what GOOD acting is. Today’s acting is good, BUT NOT “SO GOOD”. Also, I think Nickelodeon will win in total viewers, and Disney will win in the demo. But Nickelodeon MAY have a chance in winning with viewers & the K6-11 demo, because korra is good, (not that good) but good in that demo.

  • RHONJd

    Nickelodeon Rocks 2012 FYI, I was born 1995.

  • RHONJd

    Disney is #1 with K6-11 and T9-14. It will be that way this week, too. And Nick Rocks 2012, you need to get out of the 90s era. It’s 2012 now. Time to grow up.

  • hi

    @i luv nick,
    LMAO its not like they could sing live.. haha

  • LAWL

    nick_rocks, no way nick can win in total viewers, only shows holding it up are korra and spongebob..

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @JJ
    True, but from what i’ve seen nickelodeon has the better singing and acting. O and lets not forget the SHOWS, WHICH ARE WAY BETTER COMPARED TO DISNEY.. Also may i remind yall that the only disney show that won a KCA was Lizzie McGuire, which was back in 2003..

    @RHONJd
    Here are some facts that you proably dont know:
    1. Nickelodeon was giving 40 nominations for the 2012 daytime emmy awards, while disney was only nominated for 6 awards…Y..?? cuz nick is the better network.
    2. IGN gave the season finale of the legend of korra a 10/10 review, calling it excellent.
    3. And without disney movies, disney would be behind cartoon network (which I think is a way better network than disney)

    O and you calling yourself grown made me laugh BIG TIME :D hahahaha, if i was your age i wouldnt be watching disney. Like you said its time to grow up so why dont you stop watching disney channel…!! AND NOTHING NOTHING CAN BEAT THE 90S shows SO SHUT UP.!!

    Y do you care so much about who will win.?? I mean i care, but im not all excited like YOU.. Grow up :p

    @hi
    Umm yeah they can, cuz victoria and max are amayzing.!!

    @Lawl
    Not true.. Victorious, icarly, and the fairly odd parents reruns have been holding up to..

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Looks like hollywood heights is increasing.(: Thanks for the info

  • Disney Channel Rocks

    @I luv nickelodeon,
    I’M SORRY BUT IT IS VERY SAD THAT YOU ARE ARGUING ABOUT DISNEY AND NICKELODEON ON A TV RATINGS SIGN AND PUTTING YOUTUBE VIDEOS ON THIS SITE BEFORE THEY STARE REMOVING ACCESS FOR US TO COMMENT ABOUT RATINGS!!!!!!! AND JUST RATINGS.

    I AM REALLY HAPPY THAT JESSIE AND ANT FARM HAS MORE THAN 3.5 MILLION, I THINK LET IT SHINE SHOULD OF PREMIERED THIS FRIDAY, LOONEY TOONS IS IN AND IM REALLY HAPPY ABOUT THAT.

  • jj

    @ I luv nick … Maybe because KCA is on nick and mostly the people that watch nick watch that and vote for kick shows. Disney channel creates stars and nick creates good shows but Disney does too.

  • BJH

    Common Law is doing great. Desperately needs a better lead-in and a new night. The potential is there for 3+ million and a 1.0 demo.

    USA (the network): take note, please. USA (the nation): please, watch, enjoy.

  • The Bandit

    Aren’t people getting kind of sick of Family Guy?

    I used to really like it, but I’ve been bored with it for about three years now…..Are people just watching the same episodes over and over again???

  • tj

    They shouldn’t and probably won’t pair Common Law with Psyche. They are both “buddy ” shows solving crimes. You’ll isolate a certain group of people on that same night wich makes gaining new viewers who normally wouldn’t watch harder to gain. You have to pair 2 different kinds of shows so that when people turn to that channel for the show they want to watch, they might catch the tail end or the beginning of the other show. Talking myself in circles but you know what I mean. Friday is probably the best night for Common Law other than Sunday because against other established shows it brings nothing new or groundbreaking to T.V. I personally like it but I like “buddy” shows.
