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

    Common Law is not looking good for renewal… It’s on Friday night which doesn’t help… I do not dislike it and the lead characters are entertaining enough (certainly more than the tired Franklin&Bash)… But I’d prefer that USA dumps Common Law and gets a third season of Fairly Legal which also struggled on Friday

    “Barter Kings” are always under the Top 100. These guys are so crazy, but I really like what they do. They bring me to barter. I barter my stuff on barterquest.com! It’s a very friendly user site. Try it!

    Thanks Nick

    I think out of all the shows that have been on SyFy 10pm friday timeslot Sanctuary did the best.
    It did really well on fridays just before they did the bonehead move to Monday night for the show.
    then when they moved it back to Friday it picked back up , but not as high as it was before the big mistake of moving it to monday night.

    I think the “Powerful Mondays” are not doing well at all.

    SyFy as a whole is not doing well with any shows.
    Even Smackdown is only pulling in under 3 million which is about half the audience that Monday night Raw gets .

    If SyFy ends up loosing Smackdown (which I am sure they will eventually) the net work is going to be serious trouble becuase it seems that the entire network is banking on that show. They have messsed with their scheduling every season ever since they got WWE Smackdoen on Fridays, and all it has done is killed off just about every scripted show they had.

    In the past Smackdown used to air on Thursday nights on other networks.
    So why cant they give Thursday night to wrestling, and then go back to SciFi Fridays ???
    That night used to be great 3 awesome real science fction shows in a row.

    That was when the Sci-Fi network was in its prime running Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis , and Battlestar Gallectica .

    That was one seriously great lineup that I never would miss.

    As far as Lost Girl goes I’m sure theey get the show for a cheap price since they dont get to run the show at the same time as the do in Canada.

    So they must be getting the show at a very discouted rate.

    I know season 3 will be played several months after it runs in Canada.

    so what is going to happen is those that like the show will just download it from the net , and not have to bother watching it on the SyFy network !

    They really are a bunch of retards running that network !
