Thursday Night Football  was the top cable program with a 4.0 adults 18-49 rating up from last week's 3.8.  Project Runway was the top rated non-football original, with a  0.9 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 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

  • LA Dave

    Wow 30% bump for Project Runway, must’ve been some kinda of episode.

  • j

    Congrats to X Factor; fifth place for the night, pending final #s.

  • Chris L

    Awesome two-minute-long POSTGUN show, NFLN!

  • mathew

    lol anger management!

  • John A

    So Castle now airs at 9pm instead of H50 on TNT?

  • Chris

    As a fan of Anger Management they should have given the show a break, it is going against Two & A Half Men and I believe The Michael J Fox Show it doesn’t stand much of a chance there.

  • EatMorePez

    Series low for Anger Management?

  • rob60990

    Is FX just burning off Anger Management as fast as they can? This show has been on like every week for months.

    @John A, Hawaii 5-0 moved to 10 and 11. Where are those fools who said Hawaii 5-0 would grow? It’s growing alright!

  • romo

    Why does it always say POSTGUN ?

  • The Original J

    Anger management is probably what FX executives need after seeing those ratings.

  • John A

    Thanks rob60990. So embarrasing for H50. I remember the 10pm airing used made the list with 0.2 before so it doesnt even get that now? Lmao.

  • tv#1

    @ Rob60990

    I believe that FX has stated, before the ratings drop, that they will air 45 episodes of Anger Management this season and 45 episodes next year. They have already aired 36 or so episodes this year, so there should only be about 9 left for this year. The next set of 45 should begin airing in January.

  • Joey

    John A & rob60990 – OK…OK… we get that you work or know someone at ABC or NBC… that’s all fine and good… but I REALLY think you need to RESEARCH before you write. Castle brought in smaller OVERALL viewer numbers at 9 than Five-0 last week. Yes, the demo is .01 more with Castle, but that’s not a HUGE difference. To say Five-0 is a failure for TNT is simply speaking without knowing the facts.

  • John A

    H50 isnt a failure for TNT? Where is the ratings for it? And its been replaced at 9pm by Castle. Surely that speaks for itself.

  • THE OLD MAN

    What happened to Pawn Stars?

  • Igwell

    What happened to Pawn Stars?

    I dunno, people realized it’s pretty phony and stopped watching?

  • Clete

    When you look at Anger Management, its rating, from the first time it was aired, have declined from something like 5.9 million viewers to about eight hundred thousand (last week it was seven hundred and fifty thousand). That is a decline of something like eighty to eighty-five percent. Whoever at FX who approved a one hundred episode deal should probably be terminated.

  • danny

    Anger Managements numbers have most likely dropped due to Sheen firing his co-star about 2 months ago. The ego is ridiculous and she really added to the show. Episodes that I have seen without her are not as good.

  • Hillbilly

    What happened to Pawn Stars?

    No new episodes the last 2(?) weeks. Not sure when new episodes start again.
