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

  • JJ

    I can’t wait to see the Super Spongy Square Games numbers on the Top 25 tomorrow

  • jay

    Lmao @ jj See what I mean. Dude come on really?

  • RHONJd

    @Jay,

    Disney and Nick are channels just like TNT, TBS, AMC, etc are all channels. And shows on Disney & Nick do better than shows on channels like the ones I mentioned, and like MTV, FX etc.

  • tobias

    high school is such a serious thing these problems matter

  • BJH

    “Common Law” is a great show. Why does it feel like USA is ditching it? It airs at 10pm. On a Friday. With no lead-in.

  • Nick

    America’s Most Wanted – Lifetime

  • Juan

    Common law is a great show I love it and it’s sad that it has been dumped on USA by itself on Friday, and last weeks episode was great, hope it gets renewed and good for Lost Girl for a new night with many less viewers and no lead in, unfortunately I forgot to record it so haven’t really seen it yet

  • david

    It looks like For Better or Worse did good in its second week. Thanks to Amy and Nick for the additional ratings too.

  • Kaylie

    Wow!!! ANT Farm is doing really good. Its growing in that timeslot & Disney needs to keep it there and not bounce it from 8 & 8:30. My Babysitters doing decent but still needs to be on Sundays.

    Also, Gravity Falls did the best in the demo. This show’s gonna be Disneys next hit. 0.703 for a kids show. CW wish they had that.

  • MG

    For better or worse is doing great !!! Congratulation to that cast because they are great actors.

  • Cody

    Hollywood heights seems to do better every Friday..! I luv the show.!!!
    @Jay you dont see us comment bad stuff about fox or watever so I suggest u to leave us alone cuz we ain’t doing nothing wrong but commenting about our fav networks nick and Disney.. We like seeing competition between both channels..So leave us alone..

  • Ryan Stoppable

    “All this Disney and Nick talk is a disgrace to this site.” – jay

    Yeah, wanting to discuss two of cable’s highest-rated channels on a ratings site? That’s just *crazy* talk. What a disgrace.

    Also, good to see “Phineas and Ferb” bounce back above 3 million after a sub-par performance for its last new episode 2 weeks ago.

  • Lisa

    I love Lost Girl!

  • Lisa

    Lost Girl moved to it’s new Friday schedule last week.

  • James

    And XIII???

  • trevor

    My kids and their friends LOVED the last ANT Farm episode at the amusement park!!

  • Bryan

    What about ratings for Tron Uprising?

  • RHONJd

    A.N.T. Farm VIEWERS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION! WIKIPEDIA IS REPORTING ON THE ‘LIST OF ANT FARM EPISODES’ PAGE THAT THE NEWEST EPISODE (AmusemANT Park) ONLY GOT 2.4 million viewers WHEN WE ALL KNOW IT GOT 3.4 million viewers! PLEASE FIX THIS, REPORT IT TO WIKIPEDIA, AND GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE, FIX IT NOW! Thanks

  • RHONJd

    By The Way: Problem has been fixed :)
