Thursday Night Football was the night's top cable program with a  2.8 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 2.1 on November 15.  Jersey Shore came in second with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, down  from a 1.6 on November 15.

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

    Burn Notice continues to hold up nicely. A 1.0 is pretty good, considering that the audiences for the NFL game & BN would overlap.

  • Lucazzy

    Burn Notice doing great. Love the new direction the show is taking.

  • Jon23812

    FOP did way better than I expected. Well done.

  • Jim

    I dont think Burn Notice at a 1 is good. I thought it does better then that. What is with the cable summer shows playing in the winter none of them seem to do well and I do not believe in the a.swer that they are all bad shows. Maybe people are just involved with network shows that have already been airing episodes for a couple of months??

  • Beth

    I caught a marathon of The League and it is freaking hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @Jim

    Burn Notice is an old show, it’s normal it’s slipping. As far as the other summer shows, well, they weren’t good to begin with. They are just silly fluff which can’t obviously put up with a little competition. Not to mention the same procedural stuff which can be easily be find on CBS.
    The mantra for cable is being edgier, being different. These shows are not. And they obviously fail.

    When The Closer was in its prime, it was able to put up with the competition in the winter. Monk did the same. And many others. They aren’t simply good enough shows.

    People don’t have any problems finding cable shows in the winter, both scripted and unscripted (and which are achieving ratings records). The problem is the shows, not cable.
