As Usual, USA & Nickelodeon Top Cable Networks

usa.gifUSA Network claimed the top spot in the primetime cable network average viewer ranking for the 13th straight week. The last time USA was not in the primetime weekly lead was December 24-30.

In the big Primetime moves, History Channel fell 6 places to #16, and ABC Family fell 6 places to #18, while Hallmark rose 10 places to #10, MTV rose 8 places to #13 and ESPN rose 10 places to #11. I think the latter is March Madness + Major League Baseball.

As usual, Nickelodeon once again took the #1 spot for Total Day cable viewers, capturing both the top rated cable show and 14 of the top 20.

In the big Total Day moves, Hallmark moved up 5 places to #12, History Channel fell 4 places to #17, and FX fell 4 places to #18.
