Is History's Pawn Stars the new cable television show to be reckoned with? It put two episodes in the cable primetime top 5 for viewership, and doesn't seem to be done rising yet.

In an unusual week, USA's Royal Pains finished slightly ahead of stablemate Burn Notice, but that may well have been due to the timing of the NBA Finals Game 7.

WWE Raw placed #5 and #6, while the ever feisty Betty White's premiere in Hot In Cleveland was a sizzling #7. True Blood's 4.259 million was down 16% from its premiere, but still strong.

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.
