Cable Top 25: NBA Playoffs & SpongeBob Crowd The Week’s Rankings

Categories: '

June 2nd, 2010

With six NBA Playoff games, and a few NBA specials, the round ball and the square panted one dominated the cable top 25 for the week. Thursday night's  Lakers vs. Suns matchup was tops with 8.67 million viewers, while SpongeBob took up nine of the top 25 spots.

Of course, the two hours of WWE Raw did well, and NCIS repeats put 3 in the top 25.

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.

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 we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings)  to group the data we typically post each weekday from  @TravisYanan on Twitter.  During the week Travis usually posts selected 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.
