Cable shows: Hottest program this summer was...

Who cared about broadcast shows like America’s Got Talent or So You Think You Can Dance? Cable programs had no trouble drumming up the eyeballs this summer, which is probably why viewership levels were up year-to-year among ad-supported basic nets like TNT, USA, History and MTV (4 percent) versus what the Big Four broadcasters were attracting (down 3 percent).

Did your favorite ad-supported cable show make the top 10 cut? (We’re talking just the nets with commercial, people. Not HBO or Showtime). Check out the charts below which take into account the top 10 new and returning shows on ad-supported cable among viewers through Aug. 21. (Note to tweeners: Kiddie nets were excluded). And one other thing: Who knew there was a show called Mounted in Alaska? READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' Italy ratings are immenso!

Are you really surprised?

MTV’s Italy edition of Jersey Shore debuted to the show’s largest premiere audience ever — 8.8 million viewers. That’s down just a hair from the reality mega-hit’s previous all-time best of 8.9 million viewers last January.

Shore also easily beat everything on broadcast last night, including CBS’ Big Brother (7.3 million viewers). If the season follows the same pattern as season 3, the next two weeks will see additional gains as more fans catch up. What did you think of the return of Shore? Of Situation telling Ronnie millions of viewers he hooked up with Snooks? Of JWoww’s boobs getting bigger while the rest of her gets smaller? Of the fact that Florence seemingly has better nightclubs than Miami?

This is so weird. It’s like falling through a wormhole and watching some bizarro alternate universe version of Jersey Shore. Below are the opening credits for Geordie Shore, which comes to us from MTV’s UK network. A few of the characters look like they’re trying to fist pump and failing. They even have a version of Snooki, only thinner and with a smaller poof. And is it just me, or is this the first time the Brits cast slightly hotter people than us in anything?  READ FULL STORY
