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.

  • RJ

    For their first venture into reality, Beverly Hills Nannies didn’t do all that bad. ABC Family has a nice solid Wednesday night lineup right now.

  • RJ

    @PJM,

    Did she actually finally leave?!

  • jack

    Missed The Exes for the first time because I have Directv.So far season 2 has been even funnier then season 1 (though Soul Man has proven to be a weak leadin in terms of ratings).

  • Columbo

    No UFC numbers? I’m guessing the show tanked.

    80,000 viewers tops.

  • Anthony

    Looks like Viacom top rated Nick show (spongebob) isn’t on the list, hopefully they learned their lesson!

  • Jon23812

    Futurama increased over last week after Comedy Central got taken off of DirecTV?

  • Disney Fan

    Y is there never any cartoon network data.!! It has a lot more better shows than Disney.. (Coming from a disney fan)

  • jack

    I thought Dallas last night was great with the Rebecca Ewing pregnancy mini-clifhanger.Also Harris Ryland is turning out to be a delicious villain ala JR.Too bad the ratings keep going down.

  • shy1

    It would be interesting to see what happened to the real world.

  • Ngarcia

    LOL! Other than 1 Comedy Central show none of Viacoms shows are in the top 100. GOOD! Hopefully, they reach an agreement by tomorrow. I miss my shows but I agree with what Directv is doing.

  • Disney Fan

    I don’t think I like Disney anymore… Im turning into a nickelodeon fan now lol..
    @RHONjd
    It doesn’t matter it still does good/better in repeats than any cartoon/live action show on any childrens network

  • Disney Fan

    Ooooo that explains it all.!!! From wat happen between Viacom and directTv made nickelodeon decrease in viewers/ratings including other channels that Viacom owns.!!

  • Disney Fan

    Dats y there is no spongebob

  • Rono

    And Hollywood Exes? Previously it had great ratings and on Wednesday?

  • The End

    @jack

    Dallas total viewers went up this week, not down. These numbers don’t matter anyway for Dallas, you have until Season 2 to be worry free about the show, and when Season 2 finally airs, you can worry about renewal along with other fans lol.

    Personally I think Dallas will get 5 season off TNT.

  • Kaylie

    Directv is really screwing things up. As much as I dislike Nick, that gives Disney an unfair advantage and I enjoy seeing the 2 networks compete against eachother. -_-

  • Oliver

    July 4 last week, you’d expect Futurama’s ratings to be up. Looks like the DirecTV blackout cancelled out any effect.

    Worried about its future.

  • SmG

    @RJ, yes, she has left the show in the fourth episode. Her name is deleted from the opening credits. I hope she will make a few appearances on TGW.

  • Dave

    I’d also be interested in the Real World numbers.

  • SmG

    How did Jill Flint react?

    Rauch: It was probably the hardest thing we’ve done on this show, both the decision itself as well as the actual conversation with Jill because we love her so much as a person and respect her so much as an actress. It was a real difficult conversation, and she handled it with extreme grace and elegance and kindness, and of course, sadness and disappointment. We were so fortunate that she made it easy on us, and still so sad and disappointed because just not having her on set everyday has been difficult for everyone. She couldn’t have handled it better.

    You said not to rule out Jill’s return. Has that been discussed at all? Is Jill Flint open to that?

    Rauch: We presented it to Jill much as we’re presenting it to you now. This is a departure for Jill, but it’s not necessarily a goodbye. We can’t tell you right now if [or] when it’s going to happen. I would say it’s very safe to bet we will see Jill again at some point in Season 4. We’re not quite sure in what instance and how long it’s going to be for. As we told Jill months ago, we really feel like there is, and always will be, a place for her in this show. We’re [just] not sure in what capacity in terms of how often. Jill Casey is such a part of the mythology of this show and the premise. She seems open to it.
