There is a lot more information in the daily cable ratings.

We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings), which we usually post late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday).

  • Lucky

    Haven’t seen phineas and ferb on the list for a long time

  • #bravod

    Sam and Cat? Dog with a Blog? Haunted Hathaways? Austin and Ally?

  • Twist Of Fate

    Suprisingly good for P&F but I seriously doubt Mission Marvel will do better than 4.7 million viewers

  • Janet

    Wow teen beach movie is dominating alone this summer

  • John

    Looks like nickelodeon can only rely on animation these days

  • Michael

    I think DWAB and Austin and Ally got 3.0 million-3.2 million
    Sam and cat 2.8-3.1 million
    Haunted Hathaways 2.5 million the show is failing

  • Jon23812

    I think Mission Marvel will get at least a 5.8

  • #bravod

    I don’t think Mission Marvel will do great. I think it will get on the lower end of 4 million. 4.2 million maybe?

  • Twist Of Fate

    Nick needs to lay off a bit with the live-action…it’s really not working. My only hope is Sam and Cat rebounds in the Fall. Becoming an all-Nicktoon channel doesn’t sound so bad as the Nicktoons have done well. As for Mission Marvel, I expect 4.4 million viewers

  • jamie

    Sickelodeon really needs to lay off Spongebob. Seriously, airing that show all day, every day is really hurting their ratings. No wonder viewers have left Sickelodeon in droves.

    Congrats Disney channel.

  • frenchfrie

    Spongebob surprisingly brings in some of the top ratings for them so it’s definitely not the cause of low ratings whether we like that it plays all day or not. I think ticking people off by cancelling some of their favorite shows and getting caught in lies and drama is what finally drove them to the ratings they have now.

  • jamie

    @frenchfrie Where is Spongebob on the top 25 this week? Or last week? Or the past month? Now look at what is dominating this week, Disney channel. I rest my case.

  • jamie

    @frenchfrie, I do agree with you on everything else.

  • Bill

    Sam & Cat (8:00)- Nickelodeon

    Austin & Ally (8:30) – Disney

    Dog with a Blog (8:00) – Disney
    3.008 million viewers, #7; 0.505 million adults 18-49 (0.4 rating), #31

  • Michael

    Ouch sam and cat And Disney on sunday did pretty well Sam and cats ratings are horrible thats a series low

  • Bob

    Nickelodeon should have developed the relationship of Carly with all other cast members and that alone would have saved nickelodeon from the live action pit they may never recover from.

  • jamie

    Maybe Nickelodeon shouldn’t have thrown all their eggs into one or two baskets (Spongebob and Dan Schneider).

  • Nick

    Ha Ha!

  • Twist Of Fate

    Honestly, I’m not worried. Sam and Cat is the only legitimate hit on the channel that has had a premiere in over a month. When Sanjay and Craig, SpongeBob, Korra, TMNT, & The Fairly OddParents all join the mix we’ll see who’s #1
