Sons Of Anarchy was the night's  top cable program with a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating and 4.231 million viewers,  down from last week's 2.4  adults 18-49 rating and 4.58 million viewers.

Tosh.0 drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating and 2.113 million viewers at 10p, even with last week as far as adults 18-49.

In primetime nothing else besides The Big Bang Theory reruns on TBS even cracked a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating though the showing of the movie Grown Ups on FX drew a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

On USA, the season finale of Covert Affairs averaged a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and 2.47 million viewers. That was even with last week's adults 18-49 rating and up a smidge with total viewers.

A couple of others:

  • Ink Master: 0.9 A18-49 rtg and 1.547M viewers
  • Brickelberry: 0.6 A18-49 rtg and 1.099M viewers

    Ink master is the best!

  • THE OLD MAN

    SOA just continues to amaze

  • Meanie

    It was a good day in the land of BET I see. They made the list twice.

    I love SOA. Espically the fact its 1hr 30min long.

    Brickleberry needs to get cancelled. The show is not even funny but I could say the same bout South Park.

  • 4evercool

    I like Brickleberry glad it got renewed for a 2nd season.

  • D

    Shouldnt the 10:00 and 11:30 be combined for SOA. more than likely they are both pulling unique viewers right?

  • DW

    90 min SOA?. was it a season ending ep last night?. if so it was for a season ender. not good.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “90 min SOA?. was it a season ending ep last night?. if so it was for a season ender. not good.”

    No, that was episode 11 of 13 for SOA this season.

    Quick question:
    Nielsen estimates number of viewers
    A) so networks and advertisers could set ad prices
    B) to make my favorite soap looking as much popular as possible

  • Colin

    Wow. Last week Extreme Couponing had a 0.5, now it’s not even ranked.

  • Hugh

    Nice to see a bit more commentary

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Covert Affairs was very good. Looking forward to next season and what Wilcox told Annie. And how Annie and Augie will end up now that they’re finally together.

  • jmahoney

    Colin Farrell may join the cast of Sons of Anarchy next season. Here’s the link http://hollywoodandswine.com/colin-farrell-suffering-from-depression-after-agents-tell-him-to-consider-career-in-television/

  • THE OLD MAN

    Colin Farrell would be an awesome addition

  • The End

    @jmahoney

    As long as he doesn’t price himself out of a move into television I agree he’d be a good addition. I’ve heard of this happening quite a lot where certain people price themselves out, think they’re worth more than what they currently are, and thus the shows producers move on, or give into the demands.

  • Jon

    Covert Affairs is one of the best shows on tv. If you haven’t watched I suggest you take the next 6 months and get caught up watching seasons 1-3, to get yourself ready for season 4 this summer. Trust me it is worth it.

  • mikel

    Covert Affairs is a very boring show, still stopping in a deadlock and totally ripetitive.Bad characters too. To avoid

  • Chris

    I was enjoying Covert Affairs this season, but if they’re going to cave to the shippers, and make it all about Annie&Auggie, I’m out of there. :)

  • ZmaX

    this season of Covert Affairs has been leaps and bounds ahead of season 1 & 2′s stand alone episodes. They really kicked everything into gear and amped up the stakes. The two serialized storylines for this season (episodes 1-10 and 11-16) were great. I’m especially excited about next season because they are going to have a single season long 16 episode storyline, and with Annie agreeing to Wilcox’s deal it’s definitely going to be intense. But I can’t wait until next summer to find out what was in the folder!
