THURSDAY FEBRUARY 25, 2016 CABLE TV RATINGS

Select Ratings from Original Cable telecasts on Thursday February 25, 2016:

THE GOP DEBATE, on CNN, led the night with 13.10 million viewers (and had a whopping 8.55 People 50+ rating), and the AC360 special that aired afterwards brought in 3.89 million. On USA, COLONY rose to 1 million viewers, breaking the downward trend its had since its premiere, and up from last week's 946K. Spike's LIP SYNC BATTLE dropped to 1.02m viewers (from 1.35m), and History's VIKINGS took a similar fall, down to 2.02m (from 2.39m). On CMT, PARTY DOWN SOUTH rose to 638,000 viewers (from 541K), and REDNECK ISLAND ticked up to 431,000 (from 414K). On Bravo, TOP CHEF was down to 833,000 (from 876K), and on FX, BASKETS dropped to 483,000 (from 649K) with a 0.27 in Men 18-49. RIDICULOUSNESS, on MTV, was down to 652,000 viewers (from 678K) and was particularly strong in Males 12-34 (0.43), and GREATEST PARTY STORY EVER had 438,000. On UP, BRINGING UP BATES rose to 238,000 (from 200K), and JO FROST: NANNY ON TOUR was up very slightly to 73,000 (from 71K). Among lower rated cables, PORTLANDIA, on IFC, was down almost 50K viewers to 116,000, and DARK NET, on Showtime, hit a series low 37,000 viewers, but that really isn't saying much considering that last week it was at 46K. Finally, on BBC America, PREY began with a mere 76,000 viewers, which is very small even for that network.
