Monday Night Football was of course the top program for the week, and more football took up the next two spots with Thanksgiving night's Texas vs. Texas A&M edging out the Thanksgiving night Giants vs. Broncos on NFL Network.  And sure, it was beaten out by a college game, but ESPN is in about 55 million more homes than the NFL Network according to the September coverage estimates from Nielsen.

Next up was part one of Monk's finale, which averaged 5.82 million on Friday night, followed by iCarly on Saturday that averaged 5.67 million.  The premiere of Nickelodeon's Big Time Rush which aired immediately after iCarly didn't make the top 25, but its 3.45 million average viewers did at least make the top 50.

Nickelodeon newcomer Fanboy & Chum Chum finished just outside the top 25 (#26!) with 3.903 million for its Saturday 10:30am airing.

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...
