Broadcast Official Nationals Program Ratings Chart  

NOTE:  At this time, we don’t have Tuesday cable ratings lower than the Top 150 on the charts below.

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  Not surprisingly, New Year’s Day belonged to ESPN, with its near-stranglehold on COLLEGE FOOTBALL bowl games.  Their line-up was led by the ROSE BOWL at 4.16, with other games at 3.79/2.35 (the ROSE BOWL was simulcast on ESPN at 0.13), while ESPN2’s game was at 0.76.  Except where noted, other ratings are compared to December 18, since most shows didn’t air new episodes on Christmas Day.  History’s CURSE OF OAK ISLAND was the highest-rated non-football programming, down 0.05 to 0.68.  USA’s WWE SMACKDOWN was up 0.07 from its Christmas airing to 0.68.  Discovery’s STREET OUTLAWS was at 0.52/0.42, with lead-out BAD CHAD CUSTOMS at 0.29.  On ID, BODY CAM rose 0.05 to 0.38, HOMETOWN HOMICIDE was at 0.34, EVIL LIVES HERE was at 0.32, and AMERICAN NIGHTMARE was at 0.30.  HGTV’s WINDY CITY REHAB was at 0.36, and episodes of MY LOTTERY DREAM HOME were at 0.36/0.32.  Food Network’s CHOPPED gained 0.08 from last week to 0.34.  A&E’s SCIENTOLOGY AND THE AFTERMATH was steady at 0.33.  Lifetime’s MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT returned at 0.30, with a lead-in special at 0.21.  A special BBCAmerica DOCTOR WHO was at 0.27.  On TLC, MY BIG FAT FABULOUS LIFE returned at 0.26, with lead-out I AM JAZZ at 0.18.  A TEEN MOM special on MTV was at 0.20, with lead-in LINDSAY LOHAN’S BEACH CLUB at 0.15.

    I know you say you don’t post the reruns, but just to be sure Nick at Nite also have network premiere of King of Queens airing 4:24AM-5:27AM, is it possible that you have ratings for this? If not, then that’s fine.
