UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Saturday Cable Originals: 8.30.2014


This would be the place where we note that below are the Top 25 cable originals from Saturday night, but due to some technical glitch, BBCAmerica’s DOCTOR WHO didn’t make it onto the chart, although it was at 0.49 in 18-49s, which should have ranked it #6 for the night (and it had 1.23M total viewers).  Those numbers, however, were hugely down from last week’s 0.85/2.2M season premiere.  The same network’s INTRUDERS legitimately didn’t make the Top 25, with a 0.08 in 18-49s and 366K total viewers, painfully down from 0.23/796K. 

COLLEGE FOOTBALL ruled the day, as Mitch Metcalf’s SKEDBALL post has already described, with 3 games on ESPN all scoring 1.00-1.77 in 18-49s.  HELL ON WHEELS (AMC) took a hit, down about 40% from last week to 0.28, while OUTLANDER (Starz) stayed steady at 0.21.  CEDAR COVE (Hallmark) was at 0.17.
