Usually we only publish total viewer averages for cable shows, and I don't see making a weekly thing out of this, but there are a couple of interesting things to note.  While the first game of the Celtics/Cavaliers had more viewers, last Tuesdays Thunders/Lakers had a few more adults 18-49 viewers.  South Park, which didn't make the top 25 in total viewers was the week's number four program (trailing only NBA playoffs) with adults 18-49.  The Hills, which also wasn't in the viewing top 25 was the week's 8th most-watched program with adults 18-49, and the return of The Boondocks made the top 25 with adults 18-49 as well.

Things looked even better for South Park and The Hills with 18-34 where they topped the NBA playoffs,  The Boondocks fared much better in that demo as well, but I'll leave the data junkies to do their own comparisons -- 18-49 & 18-34 rankings for the week ending May 2, 2010 are below.
