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.

    Some of these people clearly have proven that they don’t know how to read cable ratings because if they did they wouldn’t see Dallas’ numbers as a flop but as a success. Do people remember the days when Dark Blue was barely getting 2 million viewers and a 0.5 in the demo on Wednesdays?

    This is TNT’s best Wednesday performer ever outside of the NBA obviously.

  • Bobby Roode

    The best five shows on television right now.

    1. Dallas
    2. The L.A. Complex
    3. Breaking Bad
    4. Rookie Blue
    5. Hollywood Heights

  • Lisa

    For the person who is disappointed that Larry Hagman has been appearing for less time in the more recent episodes: I think this is because he was going through cancer treatment during that period. (Not sure if he still is.) I read that adjustments had to be made to his work schedule to allow for him to take care of his medical issues. Like you, I would love to see him more often as long as he is able to do the work.

  • glover

    Where’s Damages numbers?

  • peter

    Would love to know the ratings of the following sports events if someone has them:

    -MLB (Mets @ Nationals) on ESPN, 7:30pm.

    -Soccer (Seattle vs Chelsea FC) on ESPN2, 9:30pm

    -MLS on NBCSN, 11pm

  • MJDB

    Does anyone know last night’s Retired at 35 ratings?

  • The End

    @Bobby Roode

    The best five shows on television right now

    1. Show I worked on
    2. Show I love
    3. Show I like
    4. Show I enjoy
    5. Show everyone else likes.

  • Joshua

    MLB Baseball (7:00) – ESPN
    0.516 million viewers, #30; 0.250 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #30

  • Tom

    It looks like Necessary Roughness is down another tenth over last week. Barring an unexpected uptick, I’d be surprised if it got renewed.

  • peter

    Thanks Joshua.

    That’s very low ratings for MLB (and ESPN) and it doesn’t sound good for the upcoming TV deal. I can’t see how networks (ESPN, TNT, Fox, NBCSN and others) will fight hard for the TV rights and pay much more than the current deal.

  • One

    That Royal Pains pictures needs retouching. The white chick apparently actually left or something, per my sources…

    My sources being the same ones who pointed out to me that…well…[comment aborted due to brain bleach quotient]

  • LisaM

    Dallas’ lower ratings surprising, but last night’s episode was predictable. I don’t know how long I will continue to watch it. And where is JR?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @One: fair enough, swapped out.

  • Nick

    Boo for Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy going down. It seems like something’s going on with ABC Family this week. Secret Life dropped .2, Bunheads dropped .1, M&J dropped .1, and Baby Daddy dropped .2. Too bad.

  • Patrick

    Larry Hagman’s cancer is gone….so says this week’s article in Entertainment Weekly.

    It also seems to imply that the 3 “oldies” will continue being an integral part of the plot into Season 2 – which is good! I’m a 25 year old male and really enjoying the show, as is my 49 year old mother.

  • pll fan

    Nick,
    Secret Life did not drop this week. It went up slightly in viewers and had the same demo as last week. It and PLL are the only two shows that did not drop this week.

  • toons

    comedy central has totally been affected… before the blackout a new daily show would do .7 and fututrama did a .8… now it’s .5 and .6…

  • john

    Maybe ABC Family has been affected by DirectTV viewers assuming it’s affected, when it’s not. Otherwise it’s a surprise why ABC family dropped this week.

  • david

    To bad Mellissa and Joey and Baby Daddy fell last night. Dallas is still doing good. and its up in viewers. Thanks for the Hollywood Heights ratings its a really good show. To bad not more people are watching it.

  • Cliff

    One would have to believe that Viacom NOT have access to 2 million eye balls watching their shows on cable from Direct TV would have to start hurting their shows…some? None of the TV LAND shows even rated in the TOP 100 last night…including new show Soul Man…pretty sad
