CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  NOTE:  many shows took last week off due to the Super Bowl, so except where noted, comparisons are to 2 weeks ago.

It was a familiar story for AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD, which remains high-rated, but not nearly as high as it used to be.  The midseason premiere was at 2.00, up a very slight 0.04 from last November’s fall finale, but down a whopping 1.64 from the 2018 midseason premiere.  TALKING DEAD was up 0.02 to 0.83 from the episode that accompanied the fall 2018 finale.  (Note that the “Walking Dead Bonus” was an extended version of the fall finale episode.)

Showtime’s SHAMELESS returned from its Super Bowl break up a tenth to 0.40, BLACK MONDAY slipped 0.02 to 0.09, SMILF ticked down to 0.06, and THE CIRCUS was up 0.01 from last week to 0.06.  HBO did air against the Super Bowl, and TRUE DETECTIVE gained a tenth to 0.34 (although that was down a tenth from 2 weeks ago), with CRASHING steady with last week at 0.11 (down 0.03 from 2 weeks ago), and HIGH MAINTENANCE down 0.03 to 0.06 (down 0.02 from last week).  Adult Swim’s TIGTONE was at 0.32/0.27, compared to last week’s 0.33/0.29.  Starz’s now-canceled COUNTERPART ticked down from last week to 0.06.  

Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIFES OF ATLANTA led unscripted, down 0.18 from 2 weeks ago to 0.65.  Food Network’s WORST COOKS IN AMERICA rose 0.09 from last week to 0.45.  Fox Sports 1’s NASCAR race was at 0.42.  On E!, the GRAMMYS RED CARPET special was at 0.39, and TOTAL BELLAS ticked up to 0.20.  HGTV’s line-up was led by CARIBBEAN LIFE at 0.36/0.33, compared to 0.35/0.33 2 weeks ago.  On TLC, SISTER WIVES dropped 0.08 to 0.29, and SEEKING SISTER WIFE was down 0.06 to 0.21.  ID’s EVIL LIVES HERE lost 0.07 to 0.29.  NBC Sports Net’s PREMIER LEAGUE match was at 0.29.  MTV’s RIDICULOUSNESS was at 0.25/0.24.

    Do you have AAF Birmingham Iron vs. Memphis Express on CBS Sports Network?


    • NaBUru38

      I think that CBS Sports Network is not Nielsen rated.


    • Mitch Salem

      Sorry, but we don’t provide ratings for sports telecasts that are too low to hit either our weekly Skedball post or the daily Top 150. There are just too many for us to cover.


      • Leo

        Is it safe to say that the game had under 100,000 viewers if it was below the top 150


        • Amaury

          Note that listings here are ordered by the P18–49 rating, so a series could have gotten 974K total viewers, but if it only had a 0.01 P18–49 rating, it is highly likely it won’t be listed here, unless it’s a holiday, but even that’s not definite.


  2. Martin

    Do you have Pat the Dog at 6 AM on Disney Channel and Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest at 9 & 9:30 PM on Disney XD?


  3. Tenter

    Do you have TeenNick ratings for Nick Cannon Presents Fresh Artist aired at 9:30PM please?


  4. Tenter

    Mitch, what was the TeenNick ratings for Nick Cannon Presents Fresh Artist aired at 9:30PM please, on TeenNick? It was a new episode only for 15 min length.
