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

  • Smoke That Sherm-Palladino

    @MJDB “Wilfred” is much more expensive than “Louie” because A) Elijah Wood, and B) it employs a full cast, crew, and writing staff; with “Louie,” Louis CK and his barebones crew of ~6 people do EVERYTHING on a shoestring budget and work for peanuts.

    In season 1, Wilfred’s budget was somewhere around 700K per episode and Louie’s was 250K. Since then both have gone up. I believe Louie’s is now nearer to 500K. Don’t know what Wilfred’s is.

    All I’m saying is they may not be as far apart as you think.

  • MJDB

    Thanks for clearing that up guys, I appreciate it. Sorry for thinking the wrong facts, I’m still hoping for Wilfred to get renewed.

  • david

    Thanks to Nick for the Hollywood Heights ratings.

  • Martine

    LOL@ Supernatural! The same 600 people watched it at 9 and at 10. That show is so very sad. I’ll bet they haven’t gained one new viewer in five years.

  • some guy who write comment now

    The fact that “Louie” numbers are so bad actually gives me hope.

    “Louie” sucks. It is not funny. It is inconsistent. It stinks.

    liking bad shows does not better than other people.
