For the weekly overall top cable network rankings, click here.

It was never in doubt that last Monday's Packers/Bears Monday Night Football game which averaged 17.45 million would be the week's top program.  Jersey Shore was a distant second, but with another series-high with 6.72 million viewers.  Even the "After Hours" show did well, landing in fourth place for the week with 4.68 million.

Disney's Wizards of Waverly Place was third with 4.87 million viewers.

As usual, we have already posted almost all of this data separately, as well as quite a bit of  data for shows that aren't on the list below. Give our site's search feature near the top right of the site a try or our Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings category.

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.
