Despite some series already finishing their summer runs (Burn Notice, In Plain Sight and Law & Order: CI)  USA Network remained on top in primetime with a comfortable margin over Disney, Fox News and TNT.

This week, I am also including the 18-49 top 20 for primetime, USA led there as well, but TBS was second and sister TNT was third, followed by ESPN and A&E.

Nickelodeon, as usual, took the #1 spot for Total Day cable viewers with an average of 2.192 million.
