Again, even with USA Network's high profile original dramas, it was WWE Raw and NCIS repeats that primarily gave them the week's cable primtime wins in both average viewers and adults 18-49.  Burn Notice was once again the only USA original drama in the cable viewership top 25 for the week.

Winter Olympics telecasts gave MSNBC another boost from its usual results, and all the cable news networks got a total day viewership boosts from coverage of the Chile earthquake/ Hawaii tsunami watch on Saturday. As usual, Nickelodeon dominated in terms of total day viewing.
