It's old news by now that the Monday Night Football matchup between the Patriots and Ravens on Monday 12/3 was the most watched cable program in history (beating out High School Musical 2).  How did the NFL Network do when it didn't have as premium of a matchup as Packers vs. Cowboys?  Not nearly as well, although it still made the top 20 based on household rating (#19), though not viewers where it pulled in 3.94 million. 

The Family channel makes 2 appearances in the top 10, one with the movie Holiday in Handcuffs which set ratings records for the network, and the other a re-airing of The Santa Clause 2.  The Mouse is milking cable ratings with The Santa Clause 2 which has appeared multiple times in the last few weeks via the Disney Channel.  It was the 4th most watched show on cable last week via Disney and the 6th most watched show on cable via the Family Channel.  Take that SpongeBob!   

Parts two and three of the SciFi channel miniseries TinMan both made the list. TNT's The Closer was back as was USA's Monk.
