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.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Brad

    Your crazy.. Nick has the better programs. I agree with Fred, but spongebob and the fairly odd parents are not lame. If you would have a vote between nickelodeon vs disney across the country, nick would win in my opinion.

  • I Love Hollywood Heights

    That’s wonderful to see that people are finally admitting that they are watching and looking forward to the next new episode of “Hollywood Heights!”

  • JJ

    Well Now That The DirecTV/ Viacom Spat Is Over, I Can’t Wait To See Spongebob DESTROY The Top 25 With The Super Spongy Square Games Marathon

  • JPK

    @Robert Seidman Futon Critic says that Dallas scored a 1.0. Which one should I believe?

  • GB

    Silvit u just won’t stop! AMC has one, okay maybe two, ratings hits. Walking Dead and probably Breaking Bad. TNT has 4 nights working this summer… to say TNT’s original are down is just not a fact. If you really look at the numbers (which obviously we all do because we log into a site called TVbythenumbers) TNT originals are actually up, it’s the rehash stuff L&O, Bones etc. that are down. I’m guessing that it’s getting hot down in your Mom’s basement and she’s too busy watching all her favorite shows on TNT (Dallas being her absolute FAVE)that she’s forgot to turn up the air. Better be careful, if she catches you spreading more lies on this site she’s going to restrict your computer time.

    There has been more than one person asking about the ratings for Retired at 35 and no one has answered. Are they THAT bad? ;)

    @GB
    All TNT shows are down. The Closer, Rizzoli and Isles, Falling Skies, Leverage they all did much better in the previous years.

    Just an example: This is the rating for the second episode of The Closer no longer than 2 years ago: 7.272 million viewers, 1.5 18-49. (source:TVbythe numbers ;-) )
    The same can be said for all the other TNT shows.

    TNT is not up, is down. The only reason why is up in general is because they have more nights of originals vs repeats. An original will always do better than a repeat, obviously.

    USA is having the same problem.
    AMC originals are the ones that are up vs the previous year despite being on a weaker channel, rating-wise.

    FX is doing great with Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story competing also with the broadcast shows (something that TNT and USA didn’t manage to do). Justified is a moderate hit which was able to stand on its own during the normal season (unlike Southland).
    Anger Management is a moderate hit too.
    FX is doing great compared to 2-3 years ago.

  • RottieGirl

    Just wondering why are regular network shows posted with cable shows? IMO, they should be left out & have just the cable channels ratings.

  • Lucy

    Oh no… I can´t understand why Barter Kings have less than 2.0 million viewers. It was such a great show. That guys bring me up to barter. I am a member of barterquest.com and I really like it. Apart from goods and services you can barter for a house, to spen you next fall vacation there. It´s fun.
