Due to lack of data availability, we may be suffering a Nielsen data inferiority complex. In an attempt at compensating, we've pulled together some more cable data from a few sources (primarily USA Today) with the live plus same day DVR viewing numbers (Live+SD). Still no Mad Men numbers, sorry.

Last Monday's (8/18) season four premiere of The Hills pulled in 3.5 million, down a couple hundred thousand from the season three premiere of 3.7 million. Law & Order: CI ended its seventh season on a pretty high note with 5.2 million viewers.
