CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  ESPN’s afternoon NFL WILD CARD GAME was a bit less dominant than the primetime game but still strong at 2.06.  On ESPN2, a Youngstown State vs. James Madison COLLEGE FOOTBALL game was at 0.47.  Note that Freeform, like some other cable networks, lists its theatrical movie premieres as “originals,” which is why its airing of 2 TWILIGHT movies are in the Top 5.  Adult Swim added a primetime DRAGON BALL to its line-up at 0.40, and its late-night block returned after a holiday break as follows:  DRAGON BALL Z at 0.52, JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE at 0.44, MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM at 0.35, HUNTER X HUNTER at 0.30/679K, NARUTO at 0.31/675K, ONE PIECE at 0.26/554K, and ONE PUNCH MAN at 0.27/581K.  Hallmark’s movie LOVE ON ICE was at 0.37. On Food Network, PIONEER WOMAN was at 0.37, KITCHEN AT FN was up a tenth to 0.33, TRISHA’S SOUTHERN KITCHEN was also at 0.33, and VALERIE’S HOME COOKING was up 0.03 to 0.26.  HGTV’s HOUSE HUNTERS RENOVATION was at 0.32.  Note that HBO listed its BRIGHT LIGHTS documentary as a rerun, which is why it didn’t hit the chart, but it was at 0.39/1.556M.

    Do you have Beyblade Burst on Disney XD, Sonic Boom on Boomerang, and The Furchester Hotel on Sprout please?


  2. D.

    The #17 ranking recorded last night for Mobile Suit Gundam: IBO was actually a new Gundam series called “Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn!”


  3. baja7475

    Well deserved climb for Star Wars Rebels (Great episode). Glad Forrest Whitaker got on board with his character from Rogue One.


  4. Sketch

    What were the 18-49 and total viewers for the 11:30 encore of Dragon Ball Super?


  5. D.

    The late night Toonami block on Adult Swim now begins at 11:30; so how did the encore of Dragon Ball Super do at 11:30 PM?


  6. Chris L

    For whatever reason, Bright Lights on HBO didn’t register on your source’s list. TVBTN says 0.4 and 1.5 million viewers.


    • Mitch Salem

      HBO listed it as a rerun, which is why it isn’t on the chart, but the numbers have been added to the post’s text.


  7. B.S.

    Do you know how the This Is Us marathon on USA rated from 1pm to 11pm? And the pilot rebroadcast at 1 on Bravo and E? Thanks
