NASCAR Sprint Cup Racing at Daytona was the most-watched show on cable last week with almost 6.4 million viewers. WWE RAW, NASCAR post-race coverage and Law & Order: CI rounded out the Top 5. Gorman favorite In Plain Sight, Sunday Night Baseball featuring the Yankees and the Sawx, Wizards of Waverly Place and Army Wives on also ranked high. A rerun of Law & Order: SVU on USA was the tenth most-watched program of the week.
Indeed for the week the Law & Order franchise seemed to encroach on SpongeBob. Ten out of the weekly top forty were in the Law & Order Franchise. SpongeBob managed only twelve out of forty this week.
Life Size and Hannah Montana joined the Waverly Wizards in the top 20 for Disney.
Shows not in the list below or already mentioned above but in the top 40: Family Guy, Drake and Josh, and Design Star III – a rare appearance in the top 40 for HGTV which came in at #35 with 2.937 million viewers.
