Disney's airing of the movie Toy Story 2 topped cable show average viewership for the week, followed by USA's Burn Notice and Royal Pains.

History's Pawn Stars showed its ratings strength, placing #4 and #5 on the week. And as already reported, HBO's True Blood averaged 5.097 million, and placed #6, quite a ranking for a premium cable show.

I am awaiting additional data, and then will publish the ESPN World Cup ratings in a separate post.

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.
