While politics isn't as popular as the Super Bowl, or even Monday Night Football, or for that matter, a repeat episode of Lost, politics was good for CNN and Fox News this week. The two most viewed programs on cable for the week were both on CNN (Democratic Debates and Anderson Cooper 360) and an additional airing of Anderson Cooper 360 placed in the top 10. Overall CNN had 4 shows in the top 20, with the Republican debates coming in #15.
The President's State of the Union Address gave Fox News Channel a rare two shows in the top 10 (#7 and #8).
Monk, Psych and both hours of WWE: RAW make the top 10. SpongeBob could only muster 5 spots on the list this week. Two airings of The Incredibles performed very well for Disney, and Phineas and Ferb makes the list for Disney as well.
