The newMovie: iPsycho made a big splash in the cable pond last week, drawing more average viewers for its top airing than the season premieres of USA's and , and helping Nick stablemate into the #3 spot. It also had two other airings in the top seven spots.
Considering all the TV media mentions (even accounting for the profanity) you'd have figured The MTV Movie Awards would have placed higher, but it was only #10 on the week. However, it did manage to defeat the four SpongeBobs in the top 25.
While they didn't make the top 25, on Versus the NHL Stanley Cup Wednesday Game 3 averaged 3.600 million, and the Friday Game 4 averaged 3.126 million.
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.
