Disney's movie Minutemen was the most viewed show on cable for the week, but scandal involving Jamie-Lynn Spears teen pregnancy lifted "wholesome" Nickelodeon's Zoey 101 to the number 2 & 3 spots on this week's top 20. In terms of cable "ratings" points, Zoey was actually number 1, but in terms of overall viewers she got pushed down a notch by Minutemen, which also scored the #10 spot in addition to the top spot.
The movie Life After People performed tremendously well for the History channel and the movie was the #4 cable show this week and the most watched program on the History Channel in its, uh, history.
SpongeBob could not crack the top 10, instead he merely took EVERY SINGLE SPOT in the last half of the list. So there is no relief this week for haters of the square-panted wonder!
USA managed to keep both hours of WWE RAW in the top 10 and Monk and Psych continue to be top 10 performers. The democratic debates last Monday (1/21) earned CNN another top 10 finish.
Miss America fans: the pageant didn't make the top 20 in viewers, but 3.63 million tuned in to this past Saturday's airing on The Learning Channel, up over 50% from last year when it aired on CMT.
