History has the hot hand with Pawn Stars, but it's bench strength isn't up to USA Network's. Not only does USA have  Burn Notice, Royal Pains, and WWE Raw, but a metric ton of NCIS repeats, which will likely keep it at the top of the primetime cable ratings for both viewership and adults 18-49 until the MLB playoffs this fall.

Of course Nickelodeon was number one for total day average cable viewership.
