WWE Smackdown was Friday's top cable original, earning a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating, down two tenths from a 1.0 last week. House of Payne was the number two cable original with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

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 Real Time with Bill Maher.

  • disney rocks

    My top 5 Nick/Disney originals post for the week will be out tomorrow.

    2. My Babysitter’s a Vampire- 3.2 million
    3. Gravity Falls- 3.1 million
    4. Figure It Out- Wed- 2.5 million
    5. Figure It Out- Tue- 2.5 million

    Other data-

    BTR- 2.3 million

    4. Victorious/A.N.T Farm
    5. My Babysitter’s a Vampire

    We’ll see who WINS TOMORROW!

  • Seads

    .disney!

  • RHONJd

    Victorious was really great on Saturday. It also trended on twitter. And it reached #2 on iTunes. And Nickelodeon promoted the hell out of the episode. Definitely over 4 million. I’d be surprised it got less….

  • layla

    @ disney fan,

    i thought the same thing about gravity falls. it doesnt belong on disney. makes me wonder really why they are going to become so much stricter with who and what company advertises on the channel but yet they allow a cartoon that is written like gravity falls.

  • trevor

    Kids don’t care what channel a show they like is on – the DVR everything or watch it later on their laptop or phone. These discussion of whether a show “fits” a network is fine for adults but the kid audience really doesn’t care. My kids have a wide range of shows they love but they NEVER sit down on a appointed night at a certain time on a certain channel to watch it. They do marathons with a Season DVD or watch it off the DVR.
    P.S. I agree with the people saying Jessie is lame. I like the cartoonish craziness and laughs on Ant Farm. But I know people who enjoy Jessie.

  • MELVIN

    Well, my favourite Disney show is Jessie, and my fsvouritr cartoon in gravity falls , and yea I agree with everyone saying that gravity falls doesn’t belong to disneychannel, but shouldn’t you be happy Disney channel is sort of growing up wih a bit of my babysitter and gravity falls

  • jRobnyc

    The O’Reilly Factor? First, these ratings in terms of 18-49 are not good. Second, isn’t it supposed to be listed on the cable news ratings? Third: I always take these ratings lists with a grain of salt, how is it possible that a repeat of Chelsea Lately on Friday could have had higher ratings than a new Fashion Police that doesn’t appear on the list? It’s possible but I’m not sure about that.

  • LoveLee

    I hope Common Law gets a second season. I am really enjoying this show.
