Swamp People

Swamp People was Thursday's top cable program with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating even with last week. Archer was the number two cable original with a 1.1 rating, up three tenths from last week's 0.8 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

    I am surprised at how low the overall raitings are for Archer repeats of Family Guy and American Dad did better then it. But most of its viewers are in the key young demo so that is good.

    @dsds – It’s not just Nielsen families… I watch about 30 shows across a dozen or so channels, and I’ve never even heard of Nathan for You.

    Is anyone watching Legit its the best show on FX

    TNA is sooo much better then wwe. There averagin good numbers everyweek. For a new wrestling show compared to how long wwe has been aroumd! Tna came from absolutky nothing. Now mill and a half people watch. Id love to see 2 mill per week and its will happend. All they need.is wwe wrestlers to jump ship to tna. Just like they uses to with wwe and wcw all the time. And wwe new PG kids shoe is borinf as hell. Wwe is not the same as they were couple years ago. They suck now. O and tna should bring back NWO BLACK/WHITE!!!!! TNA=WCW:):)

    Lindsay Lohan is not a draw so I doubt even if FX promoted her guest appearance with Anger Management it will matte. Lohan is a tabloid regular that people are no longer fascinated with whatever on screen work she has. Scary Movie 5 with her and Sheen in the cast tanked in the box office
