It was a slow week for SpongeBob who could only place his square-panted self on the top twenty list nine times. He did however snag the third spot right behind both hours of WWE RAW.
NICK only took twelve out of the top 20 spots this week as DSNY made the top twenty three times with Ella Enchanted, Hannah Montana and The Luck of the Irish (on St. Patrick's Day, natch). USA placed two Law & Order: SVU episodes in the top ten in addition to the WWE airings and TBS scored with the movie Sahara - the fifth most watched show on cable last week.
Also making the list for NICK were Back at the Barnyard and two airings of iCarly.
Not in the top 20 list, but in the weekly top 40 were seven more airings of SpongeBob (shock, I know!) and five airings of George Lopez on NAN (Nick at Night). A Fairly Odd Parents: Schools Out movie also made the top 40 along with another iCarly and an airing of Zoey 101. The O'Reilly Factor made the list twice with Monday and Wednesday airings.
Though I can't include the data, please note that outside of the top few shows, everything else is fairly bunched up. Less than 700,000 viewers separated the 20th show on the list (SpongeBob) from the 40th show on the list, Law & Order: Criminal Intent on USA.
