SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Tuesday Cable Originals (& Network Update): 12.2.2014


NETWORK UPDATE:  MARRY ME lost 0.1 and both THE FLASH and CHICAGO FIRE gained the same amount in final numbers. 

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

SONS OF ANARCHY returned from its week off for the final stretch of its run, up 0.22 from its last airing at 2.62, with ANARCHY AFTERWORD at 1.10 (up 0.01).  Bravo’s much-heralded entry into scripted programming, GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE, didn’t come close to its reality hits at 0.47, losing a hefty chunk of the 0.79 lead-in it got from REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS.  (We don’t have quarter-hour numbers for cable, so no way of knowing how GIRLFRIENDS trended once it was airing.)  MOONSHINERS (Discovery) gained 0.04 to 0.81.  On USA, CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST leaped by 0.32 to 0.79, and BENCHED rose a tenth to 0.39.  CURSE OF OAK ISLAND (History) gained 0.03 to 0.78.  TOSH.0 (Comedy) increased 0.21 to 0.78, followed by something labeled “SNEAK PEEK” at 0.35.  INK MASTER (Spike) lost 0.03 to 0.70.  THE LITTLE COUPLE (TLC) was at 0.69, and BAD GIRLS CLUB (Oxygen) rose 0.04 to 0.55.  NELLYVILLE (BET) was at 0.45.  And Adult Swim’s INFOMERCIALS once again cracked the day’s Top 25 at 0.42, with a 0.65 in 18-34s that put the airing in the day’s Top 10 for that demo.
