ESPN is pretty much a one trick pony in piling up its weekly ratings wins, but it's a big pony! The Steelers/Broncos Monday Night Football game kept ESPN on top of the prime time adults 18-49 and average viewership cable ratings for the week of November 9-15, 2009. USA's much broader line up put it in second place for the two weekly prime time averages we track.

Nickelodeon, boosted by iCarly movies, put more than the usual beatdown on the total day average viewership competition.
