SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Tuesday Cable Originals (& Network Update): 2.10.2015


NETWORK UPDATE:  There were quite a few 0.1 increases from this morning’s numbers, with the gifted including NCIS, NCIS:LA, PERSON OF INTEREST, the 8PM PARKS & RECREATION, ABOUT A BOY and THE FLASH.  (There were no changes in the ratings for either episode of FRESH OFF THE BOAT.)

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

THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS (OWN) gained 0.19 from last week and took over the top spot in Tuesday cable.  Behind it was BEING MARY JANE (BET), which lost 0.13 to 1.03.  On ABCFamily, PRETTY LITTLE LIARS was steady at 0.84, and SWITCHED AT BIRTH rose 0.08 to 0.62.  Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS remained at 0.77, and newly-renewed GIRLFRIENDS GUIDE TO DIVORCE edged up 0.02 to 0.36.  On Discovery, AMISH MAFIA arrived at 0.71, and lead-out BIG GIANT SWORDS fell 0.12 to 0.41.  ESPN’s COLLEGE BASKETBALL game was at 0.77.  It seems as though word of Jon Stewart’s big announcement caught up with THE DAILY SHOW (Comedy) between taping and air, since the night’s telecast, at 0.67, was up 0.18 from last Tuesday’s show, while THE NIGHTLY SHOW gained 0.12 to 0.43.  (The KROLL SHOW started the evening down 0.02 to 0.31.)  DANCE MOMS (Lifetime) rose a tenth to 0.60.  On TBS, GROUND FLOOR was up 0.02 to 0.69, and COUGAR TOWN gained a tick to 0.39.  JUSTIFIED (FX) fell 0.16 to 0.51, giving up almost all of last week’s gain.  SIRENS (USA) rose to 0.40, up from last week’s doubleheader of 0.33/0.24.  On MTV, REAL WORLD SKELETONS added 0.09 to 0.58, but THE CHALLENGE lost 0.08 to 0.48.  FACE OFF (Syfy) picked up 0.02 to 0.37.  The NBA doubleheader on TNT had both games at 0.33.
