The Espy Awards were Wednesday's highest rated cable original, with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Royal Pains and Dallas tied for second place among adults 18-49, with both shows earning a 1.0 rating,  Dallas matched its performance last week while Royal Pains was down a tenth from its last new episode on June 27.

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 Fast N Loud.

  • HT

    Dallas is holding steady.

  • RHONJd

    LOL, no Spongebob!

  • Max

    So, DALLAS is probably going to end up in the 0.8-1.1 range if we are looking for some type of leveling off. I guess that’s….decent.

  • rob60990

    Guess ABC Family finally has a solid hour of comedy. For a reality show, I don’t think Beverly Hills Nannies did all that terrible. I thought it would be DOA.

    Dallas seems to have stabilized.

  • Dennis

    Dallas not quite the hit I thought it would be…but it’s decent.

    Mellissa and Joey will get a 3rd season now fosho

  • Agnes

    I assume we’ll never find out if 16 or 20 people watched the season premiere of DAMAGES?

  • Marcos

    What about damages?

  • SAC

    Dallas is decent show I enjoy watching it but for a show in it’s first season it seems to be skewing old. Don’t most show seem to skew older too as time goes on. I am a little concerned because they do not seem to have much of cushion in that demo as they go on in seasons.

  • John A

    Yeah id love to know how Damages did.

  • John A

    Dallas isnt that old skewing. The Closer had 6 million with a 0.9 demo. THAT IS OLD SKEWING.

  • rob60990

    Dallas is a show that was on 20-30 years ago. Of course it was going to skew old but its not nearly as old skewing as The Closer, Rizzoli & Isles, and Perception.

  • Jenny

    I guess that week off made Baby Daddy and Melissa and Joey shed some viewers. Hope they go up next week. I take it The Exes and The Soul Man didn’t do too hot since they aren’t on the list.

  • Simon

    @Jenny

    Why is it you are only interested in recycled/run of the mill bad sitcoms?

  • SJ

    Solid for Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy. They’ll be back next summer, regardless of how ABCF decides to label the order (my guess, it’ll be a “back 15″ for both – maybe even 20 for Baby Daddy, but they’ll still be in season 2 and 1, respectively).

  • Evanmav

    We won’t find out Damages ratings until at least a month maybe more. I remember last year we only got the premiere numbers and it did close to 1 million I want to say with repeat airings added. We’ll see how their final season will do, it might improve slightly from season 4 but I can’t see it adding that much.

    Directv must have been disappointed in the numbers from last season but I really don’t know what they were expecting from the show anyways. I’m just glad the show got 2 more seasons as it truly is an amazing show that never got the recognition it deserved

  • What

    real world pro favor?

  • peter

    LOL @ the ESPYs. ESPN hyped up the hell out of this event and they even compared it to the Oscars.

  • PJM

    Might need to get an updated Royal Pains picture, given Jill Flint is no longer on the show. :-D

    I tell ya, I underestimate the bored American consumer to keep tuning into the ESPYs like that. Seriously, Rob Riggle was the host? What happened, J-Woww and Snooki too expensive?

  • Matt

    USA cannot be that happy with Necessary Roughness…

    all of their shows are way down from last summer

  • MJDB

    Does anyone have The Soul Man and The Exes ratings?
