 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

    Dallas’ cliffhanger was just too awesome, I haven’t seen a cliffhanger that good since the 90s.

  • joey

    I put this on the press release comments too. I am a huge Dallas fan but honestly I do not want to make way too much of this since it was one time and the finales always seem to do better. It has been doing .8?s in the demo so I am very happy it got a 1.3. I do not want to sound like I think Dallas will crush the competition in the winter. It will be up against alot more competitive competition in the winter from the networks then it would have if TNT kept it in the summer. Don’t get me wrong I am thrilled it did good as I said I am a huge fan but I think it is premature to say that this is the demo it will always receive (it has not proved that all summer) and do great in the winter I think that we should wait and see how it goes but realize it is not dead like others made it out to be. Just my honest thoughts as a fan.

    On the tease for M&J Wed. night, they went 3 weeks into the future, and then teased next week’s episode. I guess they are hoping to add viewers, because the total viewers has dropped for weeks.

    TAKE that top spot DALLAS — you’re awesome!!!!

  • Nadine

    @JohnA: Yes of course they share an audience!! It’s obvious! With Dallas opp. RP, RP’s share went down. Dallas also is much affected by being opp. RP. When RP isn’t on, Dallas’ share goes up. That’s been something a number of us have observed from the start of the summer.

    @Nick…

    Any numbers for the World Football Challenge on ESPN2 featuring Real Madrid vs. AC Milan?

    What about the Men’s Semis on Wednesday on NBCSPN? Thank you..

  • Steve

    I like Retired At 35 better this season than last season. But the this years ratings don’t say it.

    VICTORIOUS IS CANCELLED

  • MJDB

    At least Retired at 35 got a 0.2 this week, along with almost every 11:00 Wednesday airing (except last week which got the dreaded 0.1). Also, TV Land also only looks at 25-54, and with only one point behind the other shows, should get renewed, and placed back at 10 or 10:30.

  • disney rocks

    Thanks for ID numbers @Nick

  • DEF

    Anyone know how Beverly Hills Nannies did?
