Heat-Pacers Game 5

The NBA Playoffs were Thursday's top cable program with a giant 3.7 adults 18-49 rating. Pawn Stars was the top non-sports program with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating up from last week's 0.7.

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

    2 decades later, Full House is still doing wonderfully!

  • Dante

    Anger Management FX 9:30 PM 1018 0.5

    What a mess. No wonder FOX is going to be airing the show for a few weeks as well. How many episodes of this does FX need to actually air?

  • Brian

    Wow that’s bad for impact wrestling nobody is watching.

  • rob60990

    ABC has to be smiling that Miami Heat won.

  • Chris

    Not great for Men at Work but still pretty solid.

  • John A

    Wow Falling Skies Repeats are now matching what some Dallas Originals got.

  • AJ

    Beyond Scared Straight premiered pretty well… So did High School Musical 3.

  • JR

    Smart move by TNT to air repeats of Falling Skies after NBA games. It should definitely return to higher ratings.

  • Ram510

    I don’t know what teu are doing with Impact Wrestling? Maybe it’ll bounce back once people realize it on at 9, cause it always did better at 9. But for some reason it’s not showing on my TV guide for next week, but only on the HD channel. Does anybody know why?

  • Matt

    @JR Even though Falling Skies ran over almost every night it aired and didnt record right on my DVR! Was able to catch up ondemand though thankfully.

  • Dennis

    “Wow Falling Skies Repeats are now matching what some Dallas Originals got”

    :D
    :D
    :D

  • Chris

    Impact wrestling has sucked since Hogan took over. They need Vince Russo back writing the storylines. The show did 2 million when he wrote the shows.

  • The End

    @Dennis

    You may be an unfunny troll but I too found that Dallas point funny. I have a good feeling that Season 3 of Falling Skies will premiere well, at least above a 1.0 ;)

    Not long left to go now. Hope we get a 4th season anyway lol

  • The End

    Anyway, Anger Management is up and down like a Yo-yo..

    One moment the numbers suck, the next they’re just okay.

  • EatMorePez

    @Dante

    From what I’ve read, FX has to air all 90 episodes of Anger Management. However, they can move it out of prime time or burn it off on Saturdays if they want to.

  • Dennis

    @The End

    I’m thinking Season 3 will premiere with between 1.2 – 1.4, Lower then Season 2 but only slightly :D

  • Dennis

    …and I have no doubt it will get a 4th season…
    It has alot of room to fall.

    impact is horrible right now, it was sad watching that opening match on last night when on monday on raw you had 4 of the top wrestlers on earth in shield and bryan tearing down the house

    wwe are far from perfect but they are brilliantly building up the likes of bryan, shield, langston, ryback, hennig men in their 20s early 30s while impact has sting at 55 at the top of the card, gunner who is lost cause squashing aries, d’lo was on tv the other week, eric bischoffs son, hulk hogans daughter, trainwreck tv
