Cable took the Fourth of July off, with virtually no original programming. The many marathons of popular shows that made the cable top 100 include The Walking Dead, NCIS, Pawn Stars, and Castle.

was Thursday's top cable program with a  1.4 adults 18-49 rating up from last week's 1.3. The NBA Draft  was the number two cable original with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating down from a 1.4 last year.

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

    NCIS destroyed TWD

  • MichaelChickless

    I voted Walking Dead in the poll, but I ended up watching a few NCIS marathon episodes on the Fourth. I could almost be a Nielsen viewer!

  • RJ

    The Walking Dead is a serialized drama. Anyone who thought it would beat NCIS is crazy.

  • Paul

    @RJ – exactly. It is much easier to watch NCIS over and over than Walking Dead. Walking Dead is my favorite show and I watch it religiously but a marathon provided me with no interest. Knowing the twists and turns defeats the excitement of watching.

    Whereas NCIS, you don’t need to watch in order or follow religiously to enjoy the show. HENCE, procedurals!

  • Wright

    NCIS and TWD are both great shows.

  • The End

    I’m surprised, thought The Walking Dead would win the marathon personally.

  • Gerald Hines

    NCIS and Friends are beast repeaters.

  • CBSviewer

    I voted NCIS Yeah !!!

  • Andrew

    I wasn’t home on the 4th, but I recorded all the episodes of the first three seasons of The Walking Dead over the weekend (sans the b&w ones) and saw all the first season on Friday, and episodes of season 2 on Sat, Sun, and today. I have three episodes left in Season 2 and then Season 3 to watch. AMC made it really easy for me to get into The Walking Dead, and I will be watching season 4 when it starts in October. Thank you AMC! Now if only more networks would show complete seasons of their popular serialized shows during holiday weekends to gain new viewers and get people caught up.

    @RJ
    The Walking Dead may be serialized but they were showing it from the very beginning so anyone could get into it. I bet The Walking Dead marathon will beat the NCIS marathon in DVR viewers and maybe combined live + DVR viewers as there are other people like me looking to catch up on The Walking Dead, and most people weren’t home watching TV. This marathon will add even more viewers to Season 4 this fall.

    I have never seen an episode of NCIS btw, and don’t plan to unless someone I know tells me to watch a specific episode, which hasn’t happened.

  • IDIOT Detector

    Anyone who cheers 4th of July repeats getting 0.6 and 0.5 might be an idiot.

  • Andrew

    Not surprisingly, all the color episodes beat the b&w episodes of The Walking Dead. Only the first b&w episode of The Walking Dead cracked the top 100, as some people were curious of seeing an episode in b&w. I don’t really see the point of watching something that was filmed in color in b&w.

  • Judy912

    I realize that ‘Castle’ didn’t do as well as ‘NCIS’ or ‘Walking Dead’ but it was tops with my family.

  • Lisa

    I watched Castle half the day then switched to Walking Dead. Great day the 4th was!!!

  • Andies

    Twilight Zone Marathon so where to be found..

  • Joe

    The walking dead is puke.
