While not in the same league as the High School Musical franchise, Disney's Camp Rock was a tour de force leading all cable programs for the week with almost 9 million viewers. I suppose you could say Camp Rock lapped the field, including second place NASCAR Sprint Cup Racing. Our friends at the WWE took the third and fourth spots with WWE RAW and the first half of the epic 18 hole US Open golf playoff took the fifth spot with almost 4.8 million viewers. Considering that aired during the daytime, on a Monday that's pretty impressive. Sadly for golf fans and the TV networks, no more Tiger this year.
Bill's favorite of the Law & Order franchise, Law & Order: CI took the sixth spot. It's obvious from the 4.7 million-ish viewers that it was a Goren/Eames episode. No edit is required Bill, if it's close to 5 million, it's Goren/Eames. If it's close to 4 million it's Logan/Wheeler. No rocket science involved. How that makes the Logan/Wheeler team feel is another story!
USA's freshman drama In Plain Sight put the smack down on Lifetime's sophomore Army Wives. While the show's were close in household rating, Sight wound up #7 with 4.7mm viewers and Wives took the #14 spot with 3.8 million. SpongeBob wasn't as absorbent this week placing only 15 airings in the top forty, and only eight of them in the top twenty, the best at #8. Disney also placed Hannah Montana (12th), a re-airing of Camp Rock (16th) and the Wizards of Waverly Place in the top 20.
Not in the chart below but in the top 40 were: more SpongeBob and Hannah Montana, one airing each of NICK's Back at the Barnyard and Mighty B! several Law & Order: SVU airings, a few airings of Family Guy on Adult Swim and more still more Disney with High School Musical, and the Suite Life of Zach & Cody.
