Swamp People was Thursday's top cable original with a   1.6 adults 18-49 rating  even with aast week.  NBA Basketball was the number two cable original with a 1.1 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

    @Daw, agreed, Newsreaders has really improved on its own — I’m really surprised because, as a part of Children’s Hospital, it was lame. Now it’s great!

    @Ram510, it may seem like Anger Management comes off an assembly line, but they probably can’t cough them out quickly enough to double them up. Even garbage TV takes time to produce. They can probably squeeze out 35-40 episodes a year at the very most. It will take them at least two years or a little more to produce the whole 90-episode order.

  • Ashton Butcher

    Anger Management is growing a bit in viewership so that’s a positive there that it could grow throughout its run.

    TNA back up before the huge show in Chicago this Thursday.

  • Kjuca

    I hope Comedy Central doesn’t give up on Nathan For You. That show is so outrageously funny, funniest new show since Workaholics debuted. Speaking of which, it would have been a much better show for Workaholics to lead into on Wednesdays than Kroll Show, which I’m sure sucks – looks too stupid to watch.

  • Kjuca

    Nathan for You – Comedy Central
    0.570 million viewers, #28; 0.374 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #20

    This show could really use a stronger lead. I’m positive that if it followed Workaholics it would be successful; the Workaholics audience could really connect with this show.

  • Nick TV

    Does anyone have any numbers for Legit? This show is tremendous. We can’t seem to find that many great scripted comedies yet FX seems to have a full slate (Anger Management asside).

  • MJDB

    Not that it’s phenominal, but Anger Management isn’t doing TERRIBLE for FX. It proabably isn’t doing the numbers they were hoping for, but overall it is consistent. Also, Louie and Wilfred are always pulling 0.3s and they are getting renewed (note that I’m not bashing those shows, I love Wilfred!). They won’t be pulling it any time soon.
