Swamp People was Thursday's top cable original with a 1.8 Adults 18-49 rating. The special NBA Basketball was the number two cable original with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.

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

  • John A

    LMAO at Agr Mgp yet another Series Low.

  • omabin

    Suits still very solid, yay!

  • christi

    I don’t see either of the new AMC series on here. Did they really think people would watch a taxidermy competition?

  • Shepherd

    I felt it was a mistake to order back episodes of NR for season two, but there was certainly an argument for it; however, renewing it for season 3 before the spring season had even begun was a huge mistake and it shows!

    Good to see Suits still doing well.

    It’s ironic, because normally I couldn’t care less about some dead Hollywood personality, but I wish someone would show a little respect for Mr. Geist [sp] and change the stock photo for Swamp People. It just seems a little too cruel. Nice ratings though, it’s nice to see something other than sports or repeats top the cable list.

  • Jade

    LOL Anger Management is such a FLOP. Those numbers are pathetic.

  • Wright

    Good for Suits!!

  • Mr Mikey

    @Reed Addison

    you’re an idiot. it was Lebron vs Durant, not Kobe. And nobody cares about some stupid fake wrestling, second rate company.

  • Shepherd

    @christi

    Wow! AMC has a show about taxidermy competition! They really should stick with original dramas; all of their reality programming sucks big time. I mean come on, Comic Book Men??!

  • Reven8ger

    Good for Suits? It’s a series low we got here !

  • JoshuaCanada

    I find it hilarious that the B&W walking dead made it on the list but none of AMC’s new shows (or CBM) made it on. Thursday was a really bad day for them to put these shows on. Should have been Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Or just keep them behind walking dead.

  • luisl

    Legit? 0.1 or worse? man!

  • Dan S

    Dang, I don’t see Legit listed that follows Archer. Its numbers must be really bad to not even make the top 100. Too bad it can’t find an audience like Louie did.

  • kbmv

    Yeah Lebron pretty much owns Durant and Kobe. Lebron owns everyone and at the end of his career, he will be greater than Jordan.

  • rob60990

    Haha at Anger Management. Not winnng Charlie. :D

  • Michael

    Wow, those numbers for Anger Management are terrible!

    Kathy talk show is a flop!

  • Ram510

    Oh no Archer, sad that it was down this week cause that was probably the best episode of the season. Hope it can go back I wr a 1.0 it deserves it!

    Maybe FX should start airing 2 episodes of Anger Management each week. I can’t imagine they are really planning to air 1 episode a week for 90 weeks (maybe more considering holidays like Thanksgiving). No need to stretch it out, just get it over with

  • Mr Mikey

    @Reed Addison

    Um no, I don’t watch any wrestling, especially some company called tma. And judging by their ratings no one else watches either. Apparently 4.5 million people watch Raw on Mondays and 3 million people watch Smackdown on Fridays. So yeah, that makes tma second rate, numbers don’t lie.

  • AnthonyMule

    what are the numbers on Legit a way better comedy than anger mngmt

  • Mr Mikey

    @Reed Addison

    LOL, you’re just spewing garbage. This isn’t soccer. When wwe goes to the UK they get around 15,000 fans, when tna goes to the UK they only get about 5000 fans. That’s why they perform at smaller venues in the UK than wwe. You have no facts that Tna performs better globally than wwe because there are none.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Swamp People 1.8 @ 9:00! YAY!! #Winner
