 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

  • HollywoodHeightsFan

    “Honey Boo Boo” is like a LIVE ACTION version of “Squidbillies”

  • Jared

    Why are there so many DALLAS haters on here??..i dont personally watch the show..but the ratings have been good enough to warrant a renewal. People hating on tv shows are so pathetic.

  • NycJoe

    Dallas is still rocking out after all these years. Amazing!!

  • Brian

    I enjoyed Here comes honey boo boo! All of the show had subtiltles, you could barley understand them. The show was a combo of 17& pregnant, extreme couponing, & toddlers and tiaras .

  • rob60990

    Nice rebound for Baby Daddy.

  • Jek

    Nice for TNT. I wonder what The Closer series finale, Major Crimes premiere and the R&I summer finale will do for them? They have all that coming up this coming week. Busy, Busy for TNT.

  • disney rocks

    I believe the best timeslot TNT can give Dallas in January is Fridays at 9.

  • Tony

    Congratulations DALLAS…
    TNT’s 4th highest rated show on TNT this summer, behind The Closer, Rizzoli & Isles and Perception…. While Falling Skies is TNT’s #1 show in basic cable with adults 18-49 and adults 25-54

    ..ehmm….congratulations?

  • Jek

    Why would they move Dallas to the winter? Don’t cable shows usually not do as good in the winter with all the network programming. I don’t understand why they are moving it?? I think it was doing fine where it was.

  • Sue C.

    Yes, nice rebound for Baby Daddy. It’s my new favorite show.

  • disney rocks

    @Nick, I’m sorry to bother you, but do you have numbers for the cable network ID-Investigation Discovery? If so, could you give me numbers for the these programs-

    -Dateline on ID (7PM; Rerun)
    -Dateline on ID (8PM; New)
    -Who the (bleep) Did I Marry? (9PM;New)
    -Who the (bleep) did I marry? (9:30PM;Rerun)
    -Happily Never After (10PM;Rerun)

  • Kaylie

    Oh no to Real World!!

    @Jon23812… You’re right! Family Guy did give Fox controversy. But, that helped them to ratings.

  • pll fan

    Not much of a rebound for Baby Daddy. Demo did a nice turnaround, but total viewers are still down. M&J has really fallen hard over the last 2 weeks. PLL the only show that didn’t fall hard during the Olympics for ABC Family.

  • James C.

    Screw us all, “Honey Boo Boo” is successful. Let a meteor put us out of our misery.

  • Nick

    Good for Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy for staying steady/rising in the demo. Who cares about viewers?

  • juan

    hate that the olympics makes everything go down, I love watching it but I still don’t like that part of it coming on. Anyway good for Melissa and Joey and Baby Dady, love them both.

  • Jason2456

    Dallas was fantastic all season. Strong performances and acting. Skyrocketing numbers for the finale were much deserved.

  • Betty HF

    Haunted Collector and Pawn Stars for me…

  • BLT

    Baby Daddy still going strong – love the show and the cast!!

  • Michael

    Dallas did extremely well, especially against the final stretch of the Olympics.

    Melissa and Joey is painfully underrated. It’s actually genuinely funny, with a charming cast.
