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.

    Common Law ain’t coming back.

    And it has nothing to do with the ratings.

    @DisnickUK, The US wants to force people to buy the DVDs. However Toy Story and Tangled was on Netflix, which you still have to pay for, but only $8 a month. I don’t think I’ve seen Cars 2 on Netflix yet.

    American Pickers is a good cable program and wondering why it is in the last place slots.

    @NICK and @Robert…

    Any numbers for NBCSPN for Friday Morning which featured the US Women’s Soccer team (game started @9:30 pm EST)? You have reported NBCSPN numbers starting @12:00 pm.

    Any numbers for MLS game on NBCSPN starting @8:00 PM EST (featuring Houston vs. New York)…

    Thank you very much…

    Why do you say that Goomba? I like the show but I know it’s nothing groundbreaking. I’ve always been a fan of buddy buddy shows though. So I’m asking you, Goomba, if you’ve heard something? Robert, if you don’t mind, I’d like your opinion on the future of Common Law with the ratings as they are but on a friday. The only new show I ever remember usa putting there was Psyche way back in the day.

    @disney rocks

    Lol, it’s a great movie, it has that universal appeal to all ages.

  • Lyca

    @tj

    USA’s White Collar also premiered on Fridays and according to the article below, pulled in 5 million viewers at the start (that was back in fall 2009). Which seems unbelievable now. Not only was it Friday, but it aired in fall, not summer, which is where USA traditionally has had its greatest success

    Thanks Lyca, dang I was hoping Common Law had a chance. Hearing that makes me nervous. USA isn’t like broadcast though, and hopefully they’ll move it to give it at least another chance.
