NBA Basketball on TNT was the top cable program last night, earning a 1.7 at 10:39PM.   Buckwild came in second with a 1.3 Adults 18-49 rating, up last week's 1.0.

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

    Louie and Wilfred are dirt cheap to produce. Sheen gets paid gobbles of dough for Anger Management. Syndication is going to make Lionsgate very happy, but FX should be shaky if the premiere of a Charlie Sheen show can’t even muster up 1 million 18-49 million viewers. Just wait till the show continues, months from now, premiere episodes will barely crack 1 million viewers total.

    On the other hand, repeats of 2.5 Men get over 2-3 million viewers regularly on FX. It’s clearly the show people are interested in, not Charlie Sheen.

  • justin

    I do think FX made a mistake by putting Anger Managment on Thursdays, it’s one of the toughest nights to get viewers to cable. The show performed so well on Mondays, so I can’t figure out why the move to Thursdays. Yes, I know CBS moved 2.5 Men to Thursday’s to save face because it was bombing on Mondays, but Anger Managment should have stayed in it’s original timeslot.

  • Pedalstle

    Like people were stating before the show repeats well and at the end of the day that’s going to matter more in the future for the show especially once the 90 episodes really kick in. The only problem that I think FX really faces is that they need to find a few multi-cams to go next to Anger Management, its really on an island by itself right now.

  • Greg

    @Scrootie

    As far as I know, the deal that warranted that 90-episode back order makes the cost productions and everything else much cheaper. I’m sure Sheen got a major salary cut by agreeing to do this show, specially since he’ll get some of the money the show makes on syndication. Sure, Louie and Wilfred are ridiculously cheap, but I doubt Anger Management costs very high.

    @Pedalstle

    I doubt they’ll do that. Anger Management is not a hit and it will be over after two years. What’s the point in helping it?

  • Eric (dx)

    I don’t understand how these total viewers is estimated? A lot of wrestling/mma insiders have reported that Impact wrestling on spike did 1.8 million in total viewers but here it says 1.6.

    They also said Bellator on Spike did 1.2 million but here it says 900k?=

    Is total viewers different from “Viewership” ?

  • Matt

    King of the Nerds was a pleasant surprise…I’m not into things stereotypical nerdy, but this show is definitely on of the better reality competitions out there…Give it a shot

  • old guy

    Suits is good tv

  • I like this show

    Suits is addictive watched all episodes in about 2 nights not the best show ever but one of the 10 or so i make sure not to miss.

    Watched my 2nd episode ever of Anger Management…don’t get the appeal of the show at all. Not funny it’s a shame instead of one funny comedy 2 and half men we get 2 bad comedies AM and THM with Kutcher.

    If FX removes comedies from basic FX namely The League I RIOT!
