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

    @chris I don’t know if the league was ranked any higher during the first three seasons. I wouldn’t be shocked.

    But if they renew it. They’ll do so bc it is HILARIOUS !! I will cry if it is canceled
