SELECT FRIDAY CABLE TV RATINGS FROM MARCH 25 - MAY 6, 2016

Select Ratings from Original Thursday Cable telecasts from March 25 - May 6, 2016:

Here's a recap of the ratings of Friday shows in April. HBO's VICE averaged 536,000 total viewers over the past 6 episodes, with the most recent episode delivering only 407,000. ANIMALS. concluded its inaugural season with 246,000 viewers on 4/8, up from the 239,000 who watched the season premiere. On Syfy, WYNONNA EARP began with a low 801,000 viewers on 4/1, and dropped to 548,000 by its sixth episode, on par with recent Syfy premieres. ANCIENT ALIENS, on History, began its 11th season with 1.25 million viewers, down from the season 10 finale which brought in 1.48m on 10/9/15. MOTIVE, on USA, premiered its third season to 706,000 viewers on 4/1, and stayed relatively steady for 3 more weeks, before moving to Sundays. Cinemax's BANSHEE began its short fourth season with 356,000 viewers on 4/1, its second lowest viewed episode ever (the 3/8/13 episode had 335K), and lowest premiere rating ever (vs. 483K in 2013, 491K in 2014, and 547K in 2015). The show fell to series-lows in week's 2 and 3 though (277,000 and 290,000), but bounced up to a season high 425,000 by week 6 (though still lower than any episode from season 3). Chiller's first foray into scripted programming, SLASHER, finished its 8-episode run with 86,000 viewers on 4/15, its most viewed episode since the 2 series premiere episodes from early March (120K and 110K). Finally, a Showtime special titled SPRING BROKE found 131,000 viewers on March 25.

Table is organized based on the show's 18-49 rating (which I do not list).
