There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

    nick is just trying to milk more money by putting on more commercials instead of promoting their own shows. I liked the austin and ally episode way better than ishock america.

    I totally agree with you. The CEO of Viacom needs to fire ALL of the senior management, Including the people who run the promotional department!
