Pawn Stars-Shop-2012

Pawn Stars was the top non-sports program with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating down from last week's 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Burn Notice and Swamp People tied for second with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Your Burn Notice predictions were about right. Graceland earned a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too optimistic.

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

  • Wright

    Graceland was really good last night.

  • Scott

    Anyone have the TNA Impact numbers, this is probably the first time I haven’t seen it on a Thursday list.

  • Dennis

    lol GRACELAND IS A FLOP :D

    joke, but it is a huge disappointment

  • cimmer

    Graceland, too pretty people in a too improbable situation. Happy for Burn Notice though but not good that Graceland lost so much of that lead in.

  • peter

    Graceland was so boring. Another bland procedural from USA Network.

  • Ben Thompson

    With it pretty much certain that Chicago and Boston are in the finals, NBC should be seeing some real good numbers. A game 7 would definitely do 10 million viewers and about a 4.0 in the demo.

  • BxActor

    Graceland O_o

  • CrimeDawg

    @Scott..maybe they will finally realize having 68 year old Hulk Hogan in the main storyline isn’t a good idea.

  • Marius

    Gracelent: they will regret not continuing Common Law, it was 5 times better.

    TNT: wow, I would have expected record numbers (bigger than Dallas) for The HERO bases on the promos and having The Rock. Then, 72 Hours, great concept, but even worse ratings.
    What more do you need these days to have a successful show? I guess they’re wondering as well:(

  • Chris

    Men at Work did pretty good for its finale, hope it gets renewed! It did better than the big bang rerun at 10:30!

  • Chrisjozo

    I wish they had given Common Law a good lead-in like Burn Notice, White Collar, Royal Pains or Psych. That show was very entertaining.

    I’m glad Men at Work is doing well. It’s my only cable comedy doing well so far.

  • The End

    @Marius

    The Hero would of been better aired after a WWE program. Be it on Syfy or otherwise.

  • Sri Racha

    @Dennis

    Graceland still managed a 0.8 rating and 3.32 million viewers despite the episode being available online and on VOD since April 29.

  • silvit

    @Marius

    All it takes is to produce something different, something thought provoking, something that hasn’t been done before. Either in the characters, or in the directing, or in the story. Here we have the same old same old. It ain’t cutting in 2013.

    The Walking Dead (which personally leaves me indifferent), SOA, AHS (Which I personally don’t like at all), Dexter (which personally it’s past its prime but the finale was very good), Homeland (despite a horrid second half of second season), GOT, Breaking Bad (great finale) are doing from good to great in the ratings.
    Why? Different characters, different settings, layered storylines, moral ambiguity, a not so perfect world, characters getting killed off after they served their purpose. It’s not difficult to get good ratings if you dare a little bit.

    On the other hand, if you want something bland, silly but entertaining, there are sit-coms (see the ratings for TBBT repeats) and reality competitions or “reality” (Duck Dynasty).

    All this stuff in the middle is so last decade that it doesn’t stand a chance. It’s neither fish or meat. So, so vanilla. TNT is the definition of vanilla

  • Donof

    I wonder how Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous is doing? It’s such an awesome show but probably too clever for the MTV audience. They don’t show repeats anymore so I’m guessing it’s doomed after one season :(

  • JJ

    Zach Stone is doing horribly. I’m surprised MTV is still airing new episodes.

  • Jared

    The problem with shows like The Hero or 72 Hours is that neither show is must see TV or appointment viewing. With those shows it wouldn’t matter if you watched it last night..over the weekend or a week from now. And although the ratings aren’t horrible for The Hero im sure with the amount of promotion TNT gave it those numbers don’t look so promising.

  • The End

    @Jared

    Must see is more opinion than anything. I just think with The Rock as this shows host, it would appeal to the WWE fanbase more, and likely would be doing much better than this after a WWE show on another network.

    If TNT cancel this, a certain other network should look at picking it up.

  • silvit

    @Jared

    Are you sure that TNT expected better number? After the flop of The Great Escape and Boston’s Finest (despite the renewal) they would have known that realities are not what people want to see on TNT.

  • rob60990

    The Hero skewed pretty young for a TnT show.
