Thursday Night Football was the night's top cable program with a 3.0 adults 18-49 rating, down from a 3.8 last week. The season finale of Awkward was Thursday's top non-sports cable program with a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, up from last week's 1.0.

 

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 Thursday night's episode of a specific show

    @Matt

    Not total viewers we are referring to the adults 18-49 demo.

  • Alley Car

    Im not sure on HW of Miami yet… its much better than last season though! Im ready for Beverly Hills and ATL in November!!!

  • Trisha

    Are there any rating for Hollywood Heights on TeenNick at 8pm?

  • Agnes

    I still love Louie and watch it every week but to be honest I preferred it when it had comedic elements mixed in with the sublime stuff. I’m not suprised its ratings can’t make the Top 100 anymore.

  • elliotness

    Calm down MTV heads. 1.1 is decent but don’t overreact to Awkward. Honey Boo Boo gets the same ratings. Lol

    That is pretty good for the NFL considering a 36-7 beatdown the defending champ Giants gave Cam Newton.

  • Brandy

    @elliotness

    1.1 is great for an MTV scripted show. Awkward is not a reality show. Name one CW show aside from TVD that gets a 1.1 or higher?

  • elliotness

    Now you’re reaching comparing anything to the CW. 1.1 is good for MTV i guess. Still not impressive.

  • Jared

    And Honey Boo Boo has consistently been the #1 show of the night as has Awkward for the past couple weeks so I’m not sure I get your point. Are you suggesting because they have the same demo rating they are of the same quality?.

  • Christian

    Akward ended on a high note. Suck it bitches!

  • ACR

    I love Awkward so much. And I couldn’t be more excited for the next season. Now that the love triangle is done they can explore all the other aspects in jenna’s life. Ugh, is it 2013 yet?

  • Jordan

    does anyone know the ratings for Wilfred last night? such a great series and a great episode last night… do you think it will be renewed for a third season?

  • Tom

    Awkward should have received an Emmy nomination. It’s way more entertaining than Girls.

  • Nadine

    Are you suggesting because they have the same demo rating they are of the same quality?.
    how could you have possibly put that construction on what he said?
    But on that subject, he may not share your opinion of quality. Measuring that is awful tough.

  • melky

    Can’t believe 7 million people witness Scam Newton getting owned by Eli the Elite. These games might be horrible on Thursdays but NFLN is getting the job done so far.

    Good job by TNA going up a little bit.

  • melky

    FX’s lineup without Anger Management looks really awful time for them to go in a different direction.

  • Nick

    Wilfred – (FX)
    0.541 million viewers, 0.3 rating

    Louie – (FX)
    0.537 million viewers, 0.3 rating

  • Juan

    Yay Awkward, I love that show and it was great, I can’t wait for it to come back, and glad that it did well, btw picked who I was rooting for

  • Memphis Bandit

    It’s hard to believe that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are by far the highest earning American professional athletes. They each make $60 million a year in earnings and endorsements. They both make $20 million a year more than the highest football player.

    But,according to these ratings, no one is watching them play in the finals of the Fed-Ex Cup which started Thursday.

    If no one is watching them, why are they each hauling in $60 million a year. They must have someone fooled.

  • MJDB

    Thank you Nick.

    Guys, the reason that Wilfred isn’t on the top 100 list is simpy because their 18-49 ratings are better than their 25-54, because this list gets 25-54, but sorts them into 18-49 for us. I think that if they get Jason Gann to lower his pay a little bit, it will proabably get renewed. Realisticly, how much more could it cost than Louie (which I hate). His costume looks really expensive, proabably 50 cents.

  • chris

    The fact Louie isn’t in this list speaks volumes about how stupid audiences are becoming. This 3-episode arc that ended this week, and pulled these ridiculous ratings, was amazing.
