WWE Smackdown was Friday's top cable original with a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, up from an 0.8 last week. For Better or Worse was the number two cable original with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 0.9.

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 Friday's episode of Jesse

    Disney channel does better LN.. I’m glad fairly odd parents is on the list..(: I hope spongebob did well Saturday, cuz it had 2 trending topics on twitter when I was on. Expecting more than 3 million..(: I also really enjoyed You Got to See This. It was really funny.. Go Nick and Disney.!!

  • silvit

    What did TNT air to have such high numbers?

  • Cameron

    @Sara @Robert @Bill

    How well did My Babysitter’s a Vampire do on it’s return to Disney after a week’s break?!

  • Austin

    Lost girl is up a little in viewers (I assume cuz of smack down) but the same in the demo. Should I be nervous about cancellation. I know syfy bought season 3 from show case but I thi k the ratings were higher when they did that.

  • Martin

    Anyone else think Overkill on Lost Girl, they should take maybe a little break between big bunch of episodes, it is almost like syfy can’t wait to get rid of the episodes.

  • The End

    @Austin

    Lost Girl failing on Syfy has no effect on the show being renewed.

    Showcase have the largest slice of the Lost Girl cake, and as long as the show continues to perform on that network, it’l always be renewed.

  • Cameron

    My Babysitter’s a Vampire gets a raw deal from Disney Channel, mostly from the lack of promotion and proping. It’s a good, wholesome family thriller show, and it’s getting a bad deal.

    Last season they treated the show the same way. If Disney doesn’t want to do right by it, why keep it as an adapted series?

    Please Robert, if you have the ratings please, I’d like to know!

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Glad to see Spongebob regaining its momentum, FOP is starting to do REALLY GOOD. Air some new episodes Nick! Hope the new Spongebob special did good, expecting 5+ million viewers. “You gotta see this” was also cool. Can’t wait to see the series in the fall! As for Disney, it seems as if they do better late at night. That is when most of the tweens are up, so I’m not suprised.

    For better or for worse is a HIT! I love that show, I also love House Of Payne. These two shows really make me Friday night(s) wonderful.

  • Columbo

    Once again a movie airing on FX later in the evening gets better ratings than the UFC. Hopefully, FX execs see that and put UFC on a different night and to see if the ratings go up.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    My*…. Excuse my poor grammar. ;)

  • disney rocks

    Weird how A.N.T Farm makes the list at midnight and 1AM, but not for its new episode at 8.

    Go Disney! Go Gravity Falls!

    I’m curious to know how A.N.T Farm and MBAV did. Disney treats both shows bad. They treat MBAV the worst. I don’t think they ever rerun it during the day, plus do little promotion.

  • JJ

    I’m Glad Fairly Odd Parents and Spongebob Made It Despite The Fact The Viacom / DirecTV Fight Ended The Same Day. Also, Great For Phineas and Gravity Falls. Both Over 3 million viewers. Fish Hooks was very close too

  • disney rocks

    @Ntahan, I expect Spongebob do do in the 4 millions, not 5 millions.

  • JJ

    @Nathan
    I agree Nickelodeon seriously needs to treat Fairly Odd Parents a lot better. I just hope the long wait was worth it. I haven’t seen new episodes since December.
    Personally, I Think Spongebob Got From 4.3 – 5.2 million viewers because Nickelodeon promoted it well and it had 2 trending topics on Twitter

  • Leon

    What are the chances on Common Law season 2? how are friday nights judged versus the other week nights?

  • Mon

    @silvit
    TNT aired The Dark Knight, Mission Impossible and Transporter 3 from 8pm-4am.

  • Mon

    Insert “III” after Mission Impossible

  • silvit

    @Mon

    Thanks ;-)

  • Kaylie

    So sad for ANT Farm and MBAV. I really do think MBAV is treated unfairly. It needs to be at 7:30 on Sundays.

    This goes to show you people are interested in Gravity Falls. Phineas in the 3’s, Fish Hooks dropped to the 2’s and Gravity Falls in the 3’s. Hopefully Gravity Falls will stabilize Fish Hooks ratings.

    Disneys special Thursday Line-up is as follows:

    7:30: My Babysitters a Vampire
    8pm: Code 9
    8:30: Jessie
    9pm: Phineas and Ferb (Wheres Perry Pt. 1)
