The highest-rated, most-watched NFL Pro Bowl in a decade topped the cable charts this week followed by State of The Union analysis, two episodes of NCIS, and Burn Notice. Yep, two NCIS repeats were the most-watched scripted content on cable for the week (while a new episode was the most-watched scripted show on the broadcast nets for the week). Burn Notice and a lot of other telecasts had higher adults 18-49 ratings for the week, but I haven’t seen the weekly rankings as of this writing.
We have already posted a bit of stuff that isn’t on the list, like the Caprica results on Syfy Friday night, and even most Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand and FX’s Archer.
Unfortunately we can’t post everything, but we post quite a bit, so in addition to the recommendations for finding cable ratings below, I also recommend our site’s search feature near the top right of the site.
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 you can also follow @TravisYanan on Twitter. During the week he usually posts some (not all) cable results for each weekday, usually late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn’t posted until Monday) and he posts the links to that info on his Twitter account to the info on Marc Berman’s PI Forums. You should also follow @TVBill (it’s not Bill Gorman, but he is a TV ratings junkie and sometimes posts cable ratings info. You can also follow me on Twitter, sometimes I will post some cable ratings, though I am not taking requests there…
