U.S. Cable TV Ratings: 12/4 - 12/10/2017

Ratings highlights for the week of December 4, 2017 - December 10, 2017 on U.S. cable.

ESPN's 'Monday Night Football' topped the week in all major demographics including adults 18-34 (2.73 rating), adults 18-49 (3.49), and adults 25-54 (4.13); it also topped all of cable in males 12-34 (3.37), men 18-49 (4.94), and total viewers (10.84 million). AMC's 'The Walking Dead' was the top scripted series on the week with a 3.36 18-49 rating and 7.9 million viewers. It also topped the week in both females 12-34 (2.18 rating) and women 18-49 (3.18). 'Talking Dead', which aired immediately afterwards, had 3.36 million viewers with a 1.35 rating. 

Also scoring well this week were two Hallmark Christmas movies and USA Network's premiere of 'Psych: The Movie'. 'The Christmas Cottage' had a 3.08 rating in adults over 50 with 4.6 million viewers on Saturday, and 'Sharing Christmas' had a 2.54 rating in adults 50+ with 3.7 million total viewers. The long-awaiting 'Psych: The Movie' on USA Network scored particularly well with a 0.51 adults 18-49 rating (including a 0.62 rating in women 18-49) and 1.3 million viewers. Although a solid number by today's standards, it is down from the series finale of 'Psych' back on March 26, 2014 which had a 0.72 18-49 rating with 1.9 million viewers.  Also having a good week was Comedy Central's 'South Park' (966,000), and TNT's 'Major Crimes' (2.3 million).

Two Wednesday series-premieres both began on solid ground. Syfy's 'Happy!' notched a 0.40 18-49 rating with 1.1 million viewers, scoring better than the network's other entries including 'Z Nation' (572,000), 'Van Helsing' (487,000), and 'Ghost Wars' (388,000). Also premiering this week was History's 'Knightfall' which did a 0.35 demo score with about 1.8 million viewers. 'Knightfall' did drop from its 'Vikings' lead-in which managed a 0.57 rating with 2.3 million viewers. All three shows scored their best ratings in the adults 50+ rating (0.48, 1.13, and 1.33 respectively). Friday's Disney Channel line-up saw both 'Stuck in the Middle' (0.87 teens 12-17 rating) and 'Bizaardvark' (0.70 T12-17 rating); the former notched 1.36 million viewers while the latter managed 1.23 million.

On premium cable, Showtime's 'Shameless' topped the week in both the 18-49 demo (0.50) and total viewers (1.5 million), beating Starz's 'Outlander' by two-tenths of a rating and in total viewers (1.4 million). Following 'Outlander', a special sneak peak of 'Counterpart' disappointed at a 0.08 18-49 rating with only 394,000 viewers. On Showtime, a new episode of 'SMILF' did 575,000 viewers on Showtime, the series finale of 'White Famous' had 333,000 viewers, and 'Ill Behavior' had only 40,000.  

Among lower-rated cable networks, a new episode of 'Hot Date', on Pop, had 58,000 viewers, 'Rosehaven', on Sundance, had 130,000 viewers, and 'The A Word' had 40,000.
