Cable/Satellite networks managed to put one show in the top 25 for the past week, with the NBA Playoffs on ESPN clocking in at #24 in the 18-49 demo. TNT's share of the NBA Playoffs came in at #38.

The number crunch by the Television Bureau of Advertising (TVB) of Nielsen data for both broadcast and ad-supported cable/satellite networks found four other shows from the latter in the top 100.
