Due to processing delays we still have not seen our normal "list of 100" and likely won't before Friday morning, Update: We finally got our top 100 data in, and the new table is posted below. As far as primetime originals,  Royal Pains was the top cable original last night, earning a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from last week. Dallas was off two tenths from last week to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

    Real World stable. Disappointed by this season’s ratings. Glad that the 28th season has already been ordered.

  • Amy

    Hollywood Heights – Nickelodeon
    0.714 million viewers, #26; 0.164 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #29

  • Riley

    “Baby Daddy” rebounded!

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Amy: I know it’s almost never in the table but because I was working off of what TVBill sent me (which is the same thing Travis Yanan sends TFC) it actually made the table above!

  • peter

    That’s pretty bad for Dallas. I don’t think the show will ever go back above the 1.0 A18-49 mark.

    It will be nice to know how much the Olympics (women soccer) got on NBC Sports Network.

  • Jon23812

    I wish Futurama did better. That show deserves an average of 3 million viewers.

    First time Cartoon Network has been on a list.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @peter: we’ll probably see the normal list of 100 Fri morning (and add it), but unless it made that we won’t see anything until next week with the weekly numbers since NBC Sports isn’t one of the networks in what @TVBill sends along.

  • Monkey Man

    Baby Daddy!! Ouch Dallas

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Jon: Futurama makes the list pretty much every week. It was in last week’s list of 100 with nearly identical numbers to last night.

  • Ram510

    Wow people really like Baby Daddy. I really like it but I like Melissa & Joey better still. Even though the past couple M&J episodes have just been satisfactory. Hopefully M&J will make it back to a .7 and beyond soon

  • Jon23812

    @Robert, I know, but I read somewhere that if Futurama continues to do well, FOX will put it back on Animation Domination, and so far this season is doing worse than the 2010 and 2011 summer seasons.

  • Tom

    It looks like Necessary Roughness fell again this week to 2759 0.7 from 2806 0.8. This week’s show was another hot mess with the storyline going off in four separate directions. In contrast to last season, the kids were once again absent. A lot of the show’s initial appeal centered around the conflicts between Danni and her kids over her divorce. Now that’s been tossed aside and the show seems to be more about the travails and high jinks of TK. I didn’t sign on to see the TK show and, although I love Callie Thorne’s portrayal, the rest of the show is just too unfocussed to be especially entertaining. Judging by its declining ratings, I anticipate that this will be its final season.

  • VH1

    Hollywood Exes is going up. I hope it hit one million viewer next week

  • s0303

    i never thought baby daddy would do as well as dallas in the demo…dallas was so heavily promoted before it started…

  • RottieGirl

    so, what does the 18-49 rating mean? to me, all that should matter is the number of viewers. And, why only to 49? Does over 50 not count?

  • rob60990

    Awful for Dallas. Good for ABC Fam comedies. Not bad for TV Land comedies.

  • Joe

    Just a question Robert. Not a criticism. Why don’t you just give us all of the lower rated TV shows that TV Bill gets for you everyday? The shows thar aren’t in the top 100 list. Then we don’t have to see everyone ask for their shows unless it’s out of prime time. That’s where Nick comes in.

  • Bb

    Season high for Million Dollar Listing LA, big drama so I’m not surprised. I’m really enjoying Hollywood Exes, hopefully it hits above a million for next week and hopefully vh1 renews it.

  • Matt

    For those that know more about this stuff. Is 0.3 good for Beverly Hills Nannies? I know it’s lower then ABCF’s other shows for the night but is a reality show and must be cheap for them to produce.

  • RJ

    Last week must have just been an off week for the ABC Family comedies.

    Beverly Hills Nannies still way down though.
