Have the mighty fallen?   Burn Notice was pushed out of the top 10 by a slew of kids programs and WWE Monday Night Raw, but the 18-49 rankings look quite a bit different than the general rankings below.  With adults 18-49 Burn Notice was third for the week (trailing both of the WWE RAW), Teen Mom: Check Up With Dr. Drew was number four, Pawn Stars was number 5 (and number 7) and Family Guy reruns on Adult Swim were number 6, 8 and 10!  Family Guy reruns accounted for 14 of the top 50 programs with adults 18-49 on ad supported basic cable.

What is Burn NoticeIt’s not a reality show about sunglasses.

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…
