With no green jackets to award this week, the always fashionable WWE RAW placed its hours #1 and #4 for top cable viewership, while the return of Discovery's Deadliest Catch with its best viewership ever moved it into second position. Another being who lives (in a pineapple) under the sea, Spongebob Squarepants was #3 and took a total of 5 of the top 25 viewership positions for the week.

As usual, we have already posted separately quite a bit of data for shows that aren't on the list above. Give our site's search feature near the top right of the site a try if you're looking for Stargate Universe, Spartacus: Blood and Sand and other shows.
We always post whatever specific show data we received directly and see via press release or other trade publications. 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...
