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).

    Dog with a Blog did well. I think it should get renewed for another season especially when it topped GLC last week.

  • BigHouse

    No Brand Show :(

  • Twist Of Fate

    Spongebob’s ratings are on FIRE. With all the Toy Story’s on the page, I was sure Disney would’ve won. I wish Nick gave other shows a chance, though.

  • jamie

    I noticed Spongebob only does well on Saturday mornings. I wonder why.

  • Red

    SpongeBob doesn’t only do well on Saturday mornings, it does well on weekdays as well (3 million viewers for repeats).

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Spongebob = Saturday Morning beast.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Can we see icarly, victorious, and big time rush ratings from saturday on nickelodeon from 8-10 pm thanks

  • Twist Of Fate

    @jamie You’re such a troll. I don’t see P&F repeats scoring 4 million viewers on weekends at all. Spongebob does well in the morning because Nicktoons have a history of doing well in the morning. Spongebob’s ratings are just extra high.

    By the way, Spongebob scores 3 million viewers every day of the week, so weekends aren’t special. You’re just butthurt cause Disney needs 10 yr old Pixar to bring in viewers.

  • jamie

    Well, considering Spongebob is the only thing that’s ever on Sickelodeon, I’m not surprised if it gets “3 million viewers on repeats”. No shock, Sherlock!

    Happy to see Monday Night Football as #1 this week! Such a good game.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Ratings = Money, Spongebob = Ratings, Spongebob’s ratings = A lot of Money
    You = Dumb

    I swear some of you Disney fans are mental.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    “Sickelodeon” really, hmmm… I don’t see “Sickelodeon” making a TV SHOW, about a flipping talking “DOG WITH A BLOG”… I don’t see “Sickelodeon” making shows similar to iCarly/Victorious and USING SIMILAR PLOTS *Cough ANT *Cough Farm*

    I mean the new ANT Farm Special airing (Which will fail) is a copy of Tori Goes Platinum. Nickelodeon may overload Spongebob, but at least the network is
    O R I G I N A L.

  • Twist Of Fate

    I’ve always known Ant Farm was a Dan S. wannabe. Here’s an example:

    Fletcher – Freddie Benson
    Chyna – Black Carly
    Olive – Nicer Sam

    Fletcher is a nerd. He likes Chyna, the main character that doesn’t share his feelings. Sounds like Freddie and Carly.

    Olive is blonde, as just happens to be Chyna’s sidekick. Sam, DUH!!

    Angus is a fat kid. Hmmmm.,..GIBBY

    This is the biggest, most obvious reason of them all. Chyna got accepted into a high school because of her talent. HELLO, Hollywood Arts.

    Why don’t cable have 18-49 ratings but only total viewers?
