SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Saturday Cable Originals: 9.20.2014


Ratings in key demos for the Top 25 original cable telecasts Saturday (plus a few other lower-rated but noteworthy programs):

COLLEGE FOOTBALL on ESPN dominated SATURDAY CABLE, taking up all of the top 6 slots for the day and a few more lower down, starting with COLLEGE GAMEDAY at 9AM Eastern Time.  After Nickelodeon’s SANJAY & CRAIG and its 0.45, DOCTOR WHO (BBCAmerica) was virtually tied with last week at 0.41, although its companion show INTRUDERS remained nowhere, up 0.02 from last week to 0.08.  HELL ON WHEELS (AMC) didn’t get any momentum from the major plot event that occurred the previous week, losing 0.04 to 0.33.  On the other hand, a big and much-anticipated story development on OUTLANDER (Starz) may have helped that show, as it went up by nearly 50% from last week to 0.32.  The network’s woeful THE CHAIR, however, stayed at 0.02.  CEDAR COVE (Hallmark) climbed 0.04 to 0.16.
