Royal Pains was the top cable original last night, earning a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. Dallas came in second with a 0.9 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 last night's episode of Fast N Loud.

  • Charmed

    @Robert Why are they not on the list if they both got 0.5?

  • Josh Taylor Jerkface

    How about Beverly Hills Nannies on ABCF?

  • Jared

    Damn..ABCFAMILY took a huge hit last night..i wonder why..

  • JayTN

    Ouch! at the numbers for the ABC Family comedies. Looks like the honeymoon is over for “Baby Daddy”. The one saving grace is that all of ABC Family’s scripted series are down from last week (except for “Secret Life”, which stayed the same).

    I agree that TNT probably thought “Dallas” was going to do better than it has so far. Not only is it no longer the highest rated (first-run) cable series on the night, but it can’t win its own time slot anymore.

    Those numbers for MTV’s “Real World: St. Thomas” are odd…the best numbers since its season premiere last month. And this is even with the DirecTV black out. Given the fact that the last two episodes had dipped below 1 million viewers, I was expecting it to be closer to 500,000 viewers.

    @Charmed, how about reading the red text at the top?

  • Richie

    BARTER KINGS gets good numbers for such a fake show. This show should be on true tv.

  • Charmed

    @rob Sorry, I don’t read that that. Although it says Adults 18-49 rating (Live+SD) at the top of the list, that was all I read.

  • Liam

    DALLAS did good last night. It came in at #2. The ratings may not be as good as they were 3 weeks ago but the show is not bleeding viewers or the demo.

    And I am assuming that the 11.00pm Dallas on TNT is a repeat of the 9.00pm one and if so, the repeat got a 0.3 and 1.05 million viewers so if you were to add it to the original one the total would be 4.882 and 1.2 which is really good. But please correct me if I am wrong with the repeat of the 9.00pm one.

    Colbert Report is not on the list today and wasn’t on Tuesday’s list either. I don’t remember the last time a new episode wasn’t on the list. Clearly the DirecTV dispute has hurt the show, but for the Wednesday ratings, there may be another issue: My Verizon Fios DVR didn’t record the show last night, even though it was (I’m pretty sure) a new episode. (Wasn’t it?)

    So, that’s DirecTV viewers *and* at least SOME Verizon viewers gone from Colbert for Wed. night.

  • James

    Conan has gotten a nice bump since DirecTV viewers can’t watch the Daily Show or Colbert.

  • iggy.

    The Colbertless Bump.

  • Eddie

    There are some reall unintelligent people on here. Dallas is averaging roughly 4 mill for a cable show! Not bad. Pretty good and internationally is doing great this is a money-maker. TNT is happy!

  • Eric

    Where are the ratings for Baggage Battles?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Charmed: because although we post the 18-49 rating, the list we see is top shows ranked by adults 25-54.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    BEVERLY HILLS NANNIES 9p: 647,000 viewers and a 0.3 A18-49 rtg
    THE SOUL MAN 10p: 851,000 viewers, 0.3 A18-49 rating
    THE EXES 10:30p: 787,000 viewers, 0.3 A18-49 rating

  • Jon23812

    Futurama still remains steady. Looks like Comedy Central wasn’t affected by the blackout on DirecTV.

  • vh1

    @Robert Seidman

    Any ratings for Hollywood Exes and Mama Drama

  • Jenny

    Nannies is sure to be canned.Wonder why Baby Daddy and M&J are down this week. The directv issue should not be affecting Abc family. Tv land comedies were even so that’s good.

  • Nadine

    Eddie, nobody said Dallas was failing. Just disappointing.

  • neil dennis

    Beverly Hills nannies ratings?
