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 was not 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 Tuesday night's episode of Futurama

  • Dillan

    Quite good for Dallas to go up in the demo against the Olympics.

    Ouch at Baby Daddy. That’s quite a big drop. Especially in the demo.

    M&J held up well, even though it dropped in the demo, that’s quite good for total viewers.

  • John A

    Yes Dallas didnt drop hard. Actually up a tenth. Still that 0.8 aint great wish it was at a 1.2 or more.

  • The End

    Wouldn’t hurt to put Dallas on a new day.

  • disney rocks

    Fred:The Show didn’t make the list. Not surprised.

  • RHONJd

    Baby Daddy is dying down :(
    At least it’s over 1 million, though!
    And go Disney!

  • RHONJd

    Disney Junior on Disney Channel always does FANTASTIC

  • Denis

    lol at Dallas.

    It’s doing quite bad….

    Dropped from a 1.5 all the way donwn to a 0.7 last week, losing 60% of its viewers

    ouch

  • RHONJd

    I’m guessing Fred:The show got around 3 million viewers. It’s lead in (Spongebob) got over 3.1 million viewers.

  • Richie

    WTF is wrong with people storage wars, operation repo, BARTER KINGS.
    This crap is so staged and most the viewers think its real.

  • John A

    @Denis yet Dallas was renewed for season 2 of 15 episodes.

  • alan

    denis..the number one show of the night on cable..goes up against nothing less than the olympics and you say bad..too bad foolish comments cant be weeded out here…everyone expected it to be sampled big initially and go down …it has settled into top of the charts..think before you write.

  • bb

    Ouch for Baby Daddy, love the show but ive been missing it for Big Brother. Hollywood Exes fell a bit from last week but that understandable with the Olympics being on, its still the 3rd highest rated show of the week on vh1 after Love and Hip Hop and Single Ladies and I expect it to be up next week cause there’s finally going to b some drama, I’m sure it will get a 2nd season.

  • Nick

    Baby Daddy is in trouble. Damn.

  • RHONJd

    Victorious never makes the list. Not surprised. It airs almost the same mount of time as Spongebob. Nick airs 7+ episodes every day of Victorious. But Nick needs to understand the Victorious isnt like Spongebob. Spongebob is way more popular and has 200+ episodes. Victorious has about 40 episodes and half the popularity. Now Nick is even airing Victorious on Nick @ Nite.

  • Densino

    …hmmm Dallas had no competition last week yet it managed to fall to a series low of 0.7 (lowest demo of the week for TNT scripted drama), with just over 3 million viewers.

    Yep ut will probably be pulling in regularly 0.7 in the demo and under 3 million viewers next year before it gets a swift cancellation

    what a turkey

  • RHONJd

    Phineas and Ferb repeats do really well!

  • rob60990

    Baby Daddy isn’t in trouble unless it doesn’t rebound after Olympics are over.

  • Denis

    name fixed

  • Chad

    @alan —— So true!

  • Liam

    Graet for DALLAS. I was expecting a drop after seeing the network overnights. And winning the night was a plus and up against the Olympics.
