With most (all?) of perennial leader USA's top scripted shows in repeats, TNT, aided by The Closer and a NASCAR race, vaulted to the top of the cable prime-time viewership averages for the week of June 29 -  July 5, ahead of both Disney and USA. TNT averaged 2.751 million viewers.

Nickelodeon, as usual, took the #1 spot for Total Day cable viewers with an average of 2.217 million.

Note that we are currently in discussion with Nielsen Media about our use of their data. One element of that discussion is limiting our lists to 20 items. Sorry.
