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

    @ JJ
    I totally agree, Impact has gone downhill big time

  • Kaylie

    Lol a new episode of Big Time Rush gets 1.6 million viewers. Nick has destroyed a show that could’ve been a flagship for Nick in their desperate times.

  • RJ

    Pawn Stars premiered a new season on Thursdays last night, so it is impossible for it to grow from a o.7 last week.

  • harry

    i am eager to see how Anger management does on FOX. i think the show can have nice ratings there

  • Joseph

    The NBA playoff game drew more viewers than any cable or broadcast show in its time period.

    Tonight (June 1st) may be tougher for the NBA, since it will face hockey (a playoff game between Boston and Pittsburgh on NBC) and baseball (Fox will carry five regional games) on broadcast TV.

    Game 6 of Miami/Indiana may still be the most-watched program of the night, combining broadcast and cable, but the other sports out there will siphon away viewers.

  • Mr Mikey

    @Joseph

    LOL, nobody watches baseball.

  • Bryan S

    @Joseph

    LOL, nobody watches hockey.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Swamp People isn’t nearly as good as past seasons, but glad to see it’s still (barely) holding its own.

  • Sam

    When will the Saturday cable ratings come out? I’m interested in the Game 6 ratings.
