WWE Smackdown was Froiday's top cable original, with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating, down from a 0.9 last week. For Better Or Worse came in second with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating, down from an 0.8 last week.. Viewership, and the cable line-up,  was impacted by the Olympic Opening Ceremony, which aired on NBC.

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

  • tobias

    wow spongebob be killin it

  • everton

    sponge bob yeahhhhhhhhhh

  • CDBO

    spongebob is absorbing the ratings

  • disney rocks

    Go Disney! I also have to admit that that is very good for Sponebob

  • MJDB

    Did anyone notice that at 3 am at nick at nite, The Nanny got a 0.3 18-49, I have never seen it on this list!

  • tobias

    lol the nanny

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Woo hoo. Go Spongebob! The show is dominant. All the kid networks must really want the yellow sponge now, lol!

  • disney rocks

    @Nathan, Disney knows want Nick shows, and Nick knows they want Disney shows

  • Kaylie

    Damn Nick aired a bunch of Spongebob specials. Cool. Still happy that Finding Nemo stayed at the top. I do have faith in Disney still topping total day.

  • Twist Of Fate

    Sweet, I knew the Spongebob Squarepants Marathon (13th anniversary) would kill.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @disney rocks
    Disney wants Spongebob, Nickelodeon wants Phineas & Ferb.

  • Jessica

    Wow after 13 years (I think) “Spongebob” is still going strong. My kids love the show. We can’t wait for the second movie..

  • Disney Fan

    Woah that’s like the whole marathon of spongebob that aired on Friday I think..lol(:
    It did great.! I wander if it helped Fred 3, but I’m still guessing it got less than 4 million cuz it aired when the Olympics started.. But I can’t tell the future lol.. Disney did good to. Especially with finding Nemo <3 (: Go Nick and Disney.!

    Does anybody know the numbers/ratings for Hollywood heights (9pm on nick).??

  • Disney Fan

    I guess we all know now that finding Nemo and spongebob will make the list on the cable top 25 for the week. :D

  • tobias

    wow spongebob has been air for 13 years reminds me of rugrats longevity

  • Kaylie

    I think the only thing Disney may want is Spongebob & Victorious. Nick would definetly want Disney’s animated movies, Shake it Up or Good Luck Charlie. Both are very popular & do very well in ratings.

  • RHONJd

    @Kaylie, Trust me, Disney doesn’t want Victorious

  • sam

    Disney channel is still the more popular one. Nick’s ratings are going down recently and Friday was just one good day out of many recently bad ones for the network.

  • disney rocks

    Here’s what I’d say about Nick’s overall ratings-

    The network’s ratings have gone down a whole, but some good-rated programs remain- Sponebob, Victorious, others

  • disney rocks

    Disney would probably want Victorious, iCarly, Spongebob, and I think they would want HTR, as I could see it being a hit on their channel.

    Nick would want basically every show on Disney Channel.

    Disney would also take FOP.
