Thursday Night Football was the top cable original with a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating down from last week's 2.5.  NBA Basketball was number two with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Jersey Shore was the highest rated non-sports cable original with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating down from last week's 1.3.

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

  • DomCA25

    2 million total for RHOM, best HW franchise in my opinion. I hope Bravo gives it another chance they really stepped it up this season.

  • Dillan

    I’m hoping Jersey Shore will see a boost for the final episode next week.

  • Chris

    Man, The League isn’t even on the board this week. Not that I’d really MISS it (I actually do miss it most weeks in the sense of not catching it). But how does FX renew a first-run scripted show that isn’t one of the Top 100 Cable shows of the night it’s on?

  • B plus

    The 18-49 rating is impressive but what was once a powerhouse for Jersey Shore has now become one of the lowest rated seasons.

  • JJ

    Bravo won’t cancel RHOM. This current second season has grown in viewers and demo compared to season 1 and the amount of social media the franchise and its stars generate will keep it on the air for atleast another season.

  • John A

    Sunny is crap this season and thats why those numbers are so bad. Im a long time fan but this season is a mess.

  • Michael

    Will the series finale of RHOM be the highest of the season? I guess time will tell.

  • brenpo7

    I don’t think LEAGUE actually couldn’t make the list. Same thing happened to Wilfred, total viewers just too low. I guessing… a 0.4 rating.

  • Chris

    @Chris:

    Perhaps they could get some pointers from TV Land.

  • Meanie

    How the hell does RHOA sneak peak with no promotion & advertisement does better than RHOM when Bravo promote its all the time.

    I can see RHOM doing one more season. Maybe they need to add some Black ppl to the cast cause ever notice all black reality shows get the higher ratings(LHHATL RHOA BBW etc)

    Damn Jersey Shore is tanking in the ratings. Let’s see what Washington Heights do since that’s gonna be the next Jersey Shore.

  • Ram510

    I actually enjoyed last nights Always Sunny and am very sad about how low the ratings are this season. FX did an awful job promoting it this season, same with The League

  • DougF

    @John A

    lol

    season has been great

  • DougF

    I’d guess with Always Sunny hitting Netflix it will pick up viewers next season

  • mike

    Jersey Shore is boring but I’m watching next week. They should of waited until Snooki popped the demon seed out and Mike was back on drugs to do a final season.

  • DomCA25

    @Michael I dont think it is a series finale its a season finale. I actually just saw Andy Cohen talking to bethanny frankel on WWHL saying he loved the RHOM

  • brutony

    How bout dem Eagles! They are Number one with viewers! The League is ready to be dumped! When a cable station doesnt promote a series, its o-vah!

  • THE OLD MAN

    1.2 for Jersey Shore is so down & next week it will finally be out

  • davie

    damn jersey shore has fallen so bad. 1.2 for its penultimate episode when just last season it was averaging near a 3.0 its crazy but fads will be fads

    I watched it, though. but this season was a snore

  • madbengalsfan85

    For a team who won 34-13, my Bengals looked pitiful…especially on offense.

  • Beth

    First, the League is freaking hilarious. Funniest show on television. Do people just not know it even exists??
    It is so funny.

    Burn Notice is straight up getting on my nerves. Just get out of Miami for dang sake!!!!!!! Last night was the first time I’ve ever seriously gotten board & frustrated with them. I’m starting to think the writers are sick of the show and are writing crap to get em canceled.
