    USA cable numbers were discussed earlier, but I saw one 'funny number' in the above chart that maybe the NFL and ESPN might want to look at. I see where ESPN finally overtook HGTV (again) in the ratings.

    For the week (1-27 to 2-03) leading up to the Super Bowl (with all the hype, etc.), the Home & Garden network (HGTV) actually out drew ESPN (it was just a couple of hundredths). Did HG run some gigantic promotion or were people (like myself) tuning out the stupidity that is ESPNFL the week prior to 'The Bowl'.

    Jon, I don't know. It's very hard to go “backwards” and see what was on those cable networks even a week previous.

    Since HGTV shows are unlikely to ever make our top cable show list [or the next 20 we see but can't publish], we'll likely never know what happened that week unless an observant reader is also a big HGTV fan.

    Silvio, SciFi occasionally makes the Top 20, but not this week. If you look back at previous weeks you'll see it.
