Cable ratings: NFL Football, iCarly and Suite Life on Deck top weekly cable charts
As is always the case in the fall, NFL Monday Night Football on ESPN led the cable world. A new iCarly on Saturday night was the week’s second most-watched program on cable, with over 5 million viewers. Friday night’s Suite Life on Deck averaged 4.78 million. Reruns of SpongeBob, Penguins of Madagascar and iCarly plus new WWE RAW and Monk episodes rounded out the top ten.
White Collar was back on the list at #11.
In its second week, newcomer Fanboy & Chum Chum fell just outside the top 25 (though by Household Rating it was #25) at #27 with an average audience of 3.786 million.
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 will post some cable ratings, though I am not taking requests there either…
