WWE Smackdown was Friday's top cable original with an 0.8 adults 18-49 rating matching last week's performance. For Better Or Worsewas number two, with a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week.

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 Gravity Falls.

  • The End

    >TOY STORY 3

    Lovely movie, can see why it rates so well and has done so well on Disney.

    Great to watch in 3D too. Assuming you have a decent 3D tv like me.

  • Jeremy

    Common Law is steady but its still doing poor. Being on Fridays and its final episodes of the season going against the Olympics isn’t helping either. Hopefully it gets renewed and they pair it with Psych next time. They would make a great pair!

  • Leon

    what are the odds for common laws renewal? It deserves to get renewed and actually paired with a show where it can do better.
    Plus it clearly has a solid viewership behind it

  • tv#1

    It looks like the Friday time slot has helped Lost Girl boost its overall viewers. It is nice to see it get over a million viewers. Now I just wish its demo would rise. A .5 or .6 would be good.

  • The End

    @tv#1

    Sorry to tell you, Lost Girl has in no way recieved what I would call a boost on Friday.

    These numbers are indentical to what it was getting on other days.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    For better or for worse is seriously AMAZING. A lot of african american couples can relate to the show. I hope House of Payne’s series finale this week gets, at maximum, 3 million viewers. I doubt it wont, but still, it would be great!

    Gravity falls couldn’t hold on to its huge toy story lead in. Lol. I’m pretty sure it was a new episode..

  • xwiseguyx

    What Happened to 3 Days to Open With Bobby Flay? It started out so strong and now isn’t listed?

  • disney rocks

    @Nathan, Gravity Falls was a RERUN

  • disney rocks

    Go Toy Story 3! First time zI saw it was Friday night, love it, it’s now my favorite movie!

  • The End

    @disney rocks

    What about Tangled? Don’t you like that?

  • Debbie

    @Nathan… Gravity Falls wasnt new. It’ll be new next week.

    Toy Story did great. Hopefully next Fridays premieres will do well. Thats so terrible for Code 9. It’s just a fill-in show for now. Im sure it’ll give ANT Farm a little extra boost. It needs a little push.

  • Simon Jester

    @tv#1 – “It looks like the Friday time slot has helped Lost Girl boost its overall viewers.”
    @TheEnd – “Sorry to tell you, Lost Girl has in no way recieved what I would call a boost on Friday.”

    @TheEnd – Nope, sorry, tv#1 is right. LG is steady in the demo, but *has* improved in overall viewers since moving to Fridays.

  • The End

    @Simon Jester

    Are you sure? I thought it was getting about 1 million viewers give or take on the previous timeslot. I guess I’ll take a look at the numbers again.

    Thanks.

  • John A

    Impressive that Lost Girl hasnt dropped with it being on friday.

  • disney rocks

    @The End, I have never seen Tangled, I’ll watch it when it premieres early 2013 on Disney Channel

  • Jon23812

    Good for Toy Story 3. It would have been higher if it wasn’t shown during the Olympics, but the 11 AM showing on Saturday probably did just as good. I hope when they cancel Code 9, that Disney doesn’t make another prank show again next year. They should just stick with sitcoms and animated shows.

  • MELVIN

    I’m really pleased that gravity falls is doing great especially for a re run

  • DisnickUK

    what i want to know is that i live in the Uk and 6 months after a movie like toy story 3 tangled and cars 2 premiere we would get it on disney but in the usa it takes a year or two

  • Travis

    How did the 90′s game shows on TeenNick do?
