Still more Spartacus: Blood and Sand ratings detail based on final cable numbers via Starz.  And you know you wanted more!

Please note:  where Starz talks about being #1 on all of cable for Friday 2/19, it is talking about the coverage ratings rankings.  Coverage ratings measure only the percentages based on the number of homes where a network is available.

Starz was only available in around 22 million homes as of December, according to Nielsen, while the bigger cable channels are available in 95M-100M homes.  So the rankings within the coverage ratings is a bit misleading since USA could have a much smaller coverage rating and still many more viewers.  Cable networks using coverage ratings is a common practice, and either way, Spartacus: Blood and Sand is doing very well for Starz.

*Attracted the most HHs (612,000) of any Spartacus premiere this season
