Update: Dexter and Californication data is here; nothing on HBO's shows yet...

Last Monday's Monday Night Football matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins led all viewing for the week by a wide margin with 14.71 million average viewers.  Expect more of the same next week, and we expect we'll see the numbers for last night's Panthers/Cowboys game and will post those results separately.

WWE Raw took the second and third spots, followed by Monk and the Thursday night college football contest where the gamecocks of South Carolina upset Mississippi.

Kids and tweens favorite, iCarly on Nickelodeon was number 6, the second most-watched scripted content on cable for the week.

Disney scored with Meet The Robinsons, Sonny with a Chance and Phineas and Ferb.

Army Wives landed outside of the top 25 (#30) with 3.381 million.

I haven't seen the data for all the shows yet, and will not likely be doing any requests today, sorry.  But I will be doing separate posts throughout the week for specific networks, sometimes via press release.  If you want to stay on top of everything, be sure to subscribe to our RSS feed.

None of the HBO or Showtime shows made it into the top of the charts, but if we see any data for Dexter, Californication, etc, we will post it separately.
