Monday Night Football was as expected the top program for the week as the Patriots-Saints game was the second most-watched cable telecast of all-time averaging 21.4 million viewers.

The series finale of  Monk finale averaged 9.44 million on Friday night and was the most-watched one hour drama in cable history.  Next up was a 60 minute iCarly special, "iQuit iCarly," that averaged a whopping 8.85 million - a new series high in viewers.   Full top 25 after some disclaimer-ish blah blah blah....

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 should also follow @TVBill (it's not Bill Gorman, but he is a TV ratings junkie and sometimes posts cable ratings info. You can also follow me on Twitter, sometimes I will post some cable ratings, though I am not taking requests there either...
