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

    Yes! Gravity Falls and Phineas are doing well. Hope “Where’s Perry” parts one snd two have higher than average viewers. As for ANT Farm and Jessie, they probably got about their ususal views, but did bad in the 18-49 age group, which is why they aren’t there.

  • Jon23812

    Sorry, not Jessie. Forgot what aied last Friday.

  • tobias

    so am i the only one who watched you gotta see this

  • davie

    If SyFy renewed Being Human at it’s 0.7 levels and renewed Alphas last year that got a lot of 0.5′s, I’d think that they’d be happy with Lost Girl retaining it’s .04 demo (not to mention gaining some viewers) on it’s 2nd episode within 5 days and it’s timeslot change. Shows the audience will follow wherever they put it. I dont see them not picking it back up after season 3 since it’s a canadian import thus not as expensive.

  • jay

    These comments are so childish. All this Disney and nick talk is a disgrace to this site

  • Austin

    @the end

    Sorry should’ve been more clear. I meat are these ratings poor enough that syfy wouldn’t buy subsequent seasons from
    Show case

  • Nick

    Does anyone have the ratings for XIII at 9 pm on ReelzChannel? Thanks.

  • Nick

    @disney rocks
    I assume that most of ANT Farm’s key kids/tweens audience watches it at 8 pm, but the 25-54 group watches in the early morning. That’s why the 12 am and 1 am showings are in the top 100 in A25-54, even though they might not do better in A18-49 or Teens/Kids.

  • Cameron

    @Jay

    More than people between age 25 and 49 come to this website, I’m sure some at least 13 of age come (if not younger) and some over 50 I’m sure come to this site, probably to shake their fists on how they aren’t in the 18-49 age demo anymore.

    I care what Disney’s rating all just like for any other network.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    via @TVBill: My Babysitter is a Vampire, DSNY 8:30p: 3.148M viewers, 0.4 A18-49 rtg.

    @Nick, no Reelz in what we see from TVBill, sorry.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Silvit/Mon: though likely obvious, just to clarify the TNT results above were all for ‘The Dark Knight’ from 8-11p

  • The Bandit

    Are people ever going to get sick of watching Family Guy reruns?

    I stopped watching them like two years ago.

  • trevor

    Thanks Robert for forwarding TV Bill’s #’s on Babysitter/Vampire – any numbers for 8pm airing of ANT FARM?

  • Nickelodeon Rocks

    Really happy that FOP is doing good, Nick should really air them in reruns more often.

  • Jared

    I’m surprised to see both Dead Files and Ghost Adventures on the list..there two of my favorite Friday shows.

  • RHONJd

    For all those wondering: A.N.T. Farm- 3.423 viewers

  • Monkey Man

    Gor Bester oh worsde is grate

  • Cameron

    Damn, Disney is doing ‘Vampire’ so wrong, and lately A.N.T. Farm seems to be losing it’s regular promotion as well.

    I guess Disney has something against China Anne McClain and Vanessa Morgan. I actually started watching MBAV because Morgan was on A.N.T. Farm, so that show has a new fan out of me. That, and the fact both it and A.N.T. Farm have people named Cameron on it!

  • The End

    @davie

    Syfy didn’t renew Lost Girl, the network just bought the rights to each respective season.

    Lost Girl is a Canadian made production that airs on Showcase in Canada, renewal each year has, and will forever be done by Showcase alone.

    Syfy can’t cancel this show, if Season 3 fails on the network the network won’t buy anymore seasons, but Showcase if it does well on that network can order a 4th Season if needed.

    Saving Hope is in the same situation, its doing well in Canada, and is owned by a Canadian network, although its failing on NBC, it can be renewed in Canada but ended in the United States.

    Amazing how many fans don’t know this fact.

    @Austin

    Worse case scenario, you could always just buy Seasons 3 onwards if the show fails on Syfy and continues on Showcase for another season.

  • trevor

    ANT FARM did GREAT at 8pm with over 3.4 million viewers!
