Counting Carswas Tuesday's top cable original with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating, up from an 0.8n last week. The Teen Mom reunion came in second with a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, down from a 1.7 for last week's season finale.

 

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 Abby & Brittany

    Excellent White Collar episode and numbers, another bump back up this week. Does anyone know where to get DVR numbers on WC and others? Next week should go higher with the amazing hot boxing stills released.

  • Ricky

    Why did nobody watch Coma?! I don’t understand at all.

  • Steve

    White Collar was pretty good. Alex is perfect for that occasional pop up b/c Neal and her play off each other so dang well. Next weeks looks awesome so I hoped im not let down.

    I had been pretty bored with Covert Affiars but I actually watched the whole episode. It was pretty decent and the ending was a good Cliffy. Lets just hope it pays off next week .

    “Does anyone know where to get DVR numbers on WC and others?”

    These numbers, like almost everything else on our site, include DVR viewing until 3am the day after airdate (Live+Same Day), which for most shows is about half of all the DVR viewing that’s measured.

    We no longer see Live + 7 Day ratings for cable shows on a regular basis, but we do occasionally post press releases from cable networks that contain them.

  • nick

    numbers for Beverly Hills nannies? season finale and Reunion Show?

  • Mon

    People who gave up on Covert Affairs should watch it again because last Tuesday’s episode was a game changer and a real shocker! Glad its doing pretty well. I think its safe to say it’s a lock for renewal.

  • Old Man

    BBT really is a Beast for TBS, top 4 & 4 of top 6–WOW

    Watched ROOT Sports for the Pirates–GO PGH!

  • Ike

    I’m glad to see that Coma did relatively poorly. Idiotic brain-dead tripe. I hope Lauren Ambrose gets better scripts in the future.

  • AX

    Good to see the WC ratings boost this week. Tuned in this week’s White Collar cause I heard that Gloria Votsis was back. Loved her performance, as usual. I liked how they explained her absence, and how she came back with a vengeance, outsmarting everyone. She finally let go of ‘fantasy’ Neal, and went back to looking out for herself. I would love if she came back again, but in case she doesn’t, this was a decent farewell ep for her.

  • SG

    Nice uptick for White Collar. Loved seeing Alex/Gloria Votsis again. Even though she’s gone for now, I hope we get to see her in an episode or three next season. It would be great if she could be part of one of the multi-ep arcs in some way.

  • Nadine

    Why did nobody watch Coma?! I don’t understand at all.
    I suspect it’s because A&E just isn’t on people’s radar. It’s become a real trash channel with second-rate true-crime shows and occasional Dogs. If more people knew about it, it might have done better. But maybe they should have waited until WC and CA finished.

  • Mare

    Just loved Gloria Votsis’ return as Alex on White Collar this week. The scenes with her and Matt Bomer are so enjoyable and they play off each other wonderfully. Loved that she is a smart and sexy female character. Well Done White Collar. Please bring GV back for more episodes next season.
    Alex really is the love interest that will work in the long run. They are so natural around each other. Also enjoyed Peter and Mozzie’s scenes. They were really fun together this week.

  • Ricky

    @Nadine: If more people knew about it…really? I would think lots of people knew about it. It got pretty decent advertising, though not to the degree of NBC-Universal and their overpromotion machine, on other channels too (I remember seeing at least one Coma commercial on USA), and in places like movie theaters. When I went to see TDKR last month the popcorn boxes (at least, the medium ones) were all printed with the logo for Coma, and announcing that it was a Ridley/Tony Scott production.

  • Lyca

    @Mare: I enjoy Alex too, but can’t see her being any kind of long-term love interest.

    She and Neal have a long history, but the romantic aspects of that are clearly in the rear view mirror. They spark together, and probably always will, but they strike me as two people who know that neither one is “good” for the other, esp. given their current situations. They are more than willing to use each other for professional gain (well, Alex more so than Neal, obviously), but it is hard to imagine, in the current context of their lives, that they could sustain any kind of real romantic relationship. Now a fling, that’s a different story! ;-)

  • Bennett

    Anyone know why the cable ratings were delayed? White Collar continues to impress. Glad it’s holding strong. CA ticked up a bit from last week but is still losing 18-49 viewers from its much stronger (in my opinion), lead-in. I have given up on that show but for fans, its in no danger of being cancelled. With Fairly Legal, Necessary Roughness, and Common Law on USA all doing worse than CA, I think it goes another 2-3 seasons. I think White Collar can go for longer. Problem with that show will be whether Bomer will want to stay with his burgeoning film career…

    GO DANCE MOMS!

    The Labor Day holiday.

  • Tom

    @ Mon You’re definitely right about Covert Affairs. I didn’t see the ending coming at all. Finally something interesting to look forward to next week.

  • kevin

    i like the counting cars show , it is fun to watch , i would however like to see more detail on how they build the bikes and cars , also i’m curious about his nightclub that was on one of the episodes .
