Thursday Night Football was the night's top cable program with a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 2.5 last week..  Jersey Shore came in second with a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, matching last week's performance.

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
