SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Tuesday Cable Originals (& Network Update): 11.25.2014


NETWORK UPDATE:  There was no joy for NBC in final Tuesday numbers, which remained as-is for the network’s line-up.  The DANCING WITH THE STARS cycle finale, however, gained 0.1, as did NCIS.

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

NOTE:  Due to the Nielsen holiday, this will be the last cable post until Monday.

Without a new episode of SONS OF ANARCHY airing, Tuesday’s top cable show was History’s CURSE OF OAK ISLAND, up 0.08 from last week to 0.75.  INK MASTER (Spike) followed, up 0.04 to 0.73.  A notable feature of the night was that 4 of the night’s Top 10 shows were CNN news broadcasts, ranging from 0.55-0.67, presumably due to ongoing events in Ferguson.  REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS (Bravo) was down 0.24 from last week to 0.64.  MOONSHINERS (Discovery) fell 0.15 to 0.62, and a post-show followed at 0.31.  On Comedy Central (it’s worth noting that both THE DAILY SHOW and THE COLBERT REPORT have the week off, since the high news interest probably would have raised those shows as well), TOSH.0 lost 0.15 to 0.57.  On MTV, the season finale of AWKWARD was up 0.05 to 0.50, but the season finale of FAKING IT slipped 0.01 to 0.40.  On BET, REAL HUSBANDS was at 0.50 (up 0.12), and NELLYVILLE at 0.56.  BAD GIRLS CLUB (Oxygen) stayed at 0.51.  On USA, CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST was down 0.07 to 0.47, and BENCHED was down 0.01 to 0.29.  On VH1, an hour of T.I. AND TINY was at 0.36/0.30.  For those following the ratings path of INFOMERCIALS on Adult Swim, there was a 0.41 4AM rating for that Emmy magnet.
