 The season finale of Dallas was Wednesday's top cable show with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, up from an 0.8 last week. The series premiere of  Here Comes Honey Boo Boo was the number two cable original with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

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

  • Jack

    Dallas!!!!!!!! J. R. return…

  • John A

    Wow 1.3 for Dallas is great. I thought it got a 1.2 earlier. Haters will be quiet today.

  • glover

    I’m surprised with Dallas. So people still have interest in the show.

  • Jeff R

    It was a great episode of Dallas, too! I’m looking forward to its return in January. Good to see it way up for its season finale.

  • Jared

    Looks like Honey Boo Boo is a hit for TLC…one of the funniest..craziest shows I’ve ever seen..

  • Jay

    Yeah, surprised about Dallas too. Thought it would be like the rebooted Melrose Place – people are interested in the first episode and then stop watching. Saying that, it still skews quite old..luckily the total viewership is alright.

  • JR

    LMAO at all the people who kept saying Dallas was going to fall on its A** during the Olympics. WAY TO GO DALLAS!!

  • Mike

    Good to see The Exes and Soul Man listed. Hoping both get renewed.

  • Sara

    Dallas os still an awful show.
    plus, most tv shows, especially on cable have a big increase for finales (Game of Thrones, Walking Dead etc)….

  • Sara

    Melissa and Joey fell hard too…

  • Liam

    Dallas did great. Such a large increase in the 18-49 demo compared to last week. And the Olympics did not hurt the finale at all. Roll on season 2.

  • Clarke

    Wow. Dallas skyrocketed. And rightfully so! The season finale was fantastic, can’t wait for it to return.

    Is a 0.8 good for TLC? Is that trainwreck of a show a hit?

  • Linda

    Wow, one of the morning Supernatural’s [Crossroad Blues] on TNT made the list.

  • Nadine

    Well, sorry to point this out, but it had no competition. Royal Pains wasn’t being shown this week.

  • Jon23812

    Futurama is a good show. It deserves more than that.

  • The End

    @Jon23812

    Fox should take it back. And place it in a Sunday lineup consisting of Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama and New show X

  • Supernatural fan

    Go supernatural aha
    Baby Daddy did okay i guess, im not to sure on the show, i watch it every week and think its very watchable but its not as good as it could be. Hope it getting an extra 5 episodes or something and gets renewed

  • John A

    Yeah Royal Pains and Dallas share a audience LMAO.

  • John A

    Come up with a better excuse people. Dallas Increased 0.5 in the demo even haters cant argue Dallas did well.

  • Jon23812

    @The End, Agreed, but they said if the show did well on Comedy Central, that they would air it on their network. I wonder why FOX was didn’t make Family Guy go through that, especially since, Futurama was created by the guy who created The Simpsons, the show that helped put FOX on the map. Family Guy just gave FOX controversy.
