SONS-OF-ANARCHY-GILEAD

OK, so Sons Of Anarchy didn't top this chart, but at least it was on the chart at #22 and it was the top cable scripted show with adults 18-49 (it  beat both Monk and White Collar with adults 18-49).  Plus it's the best show on the air right now!

But the premiere of White Collar (and Monk, too) were higher on this list.  I enjoyed the White Collar premiere which averaged exactly 5.400 million viewers.   It's not too late to guess the average viewers for this Friday's episode of White Collar for a chance to win $500 worth of White Collar prizes.

Dexter set a series high Sunday night.

Sadly, I've made the decision to no longer field requests.  We always post whatever data we see via press release or other trade publications already.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and  you can also follow @TravisYanan on Twitter.  During the week he usually posts some (not all) cable results for each weekday, usually late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn't posted until Monday) and he posts the links to that info on his Twitter account to the info on Marc Berman's PI Forums.  You can also follow me on Twitter, sometimes I spit some ratings info out, like this morning for Mad Men and That's So Raven.
