Sports dominated the week, taking the top five spots in the weekly rankings. With a below average performance for Monday Night Football that averaged only 9.7 million viewers, the final game of the Yankees/Rangers ALCS was tops for the week with 11.86 million viewers. Along with the Monday Night Football contest, three other ALCS games rounded out the top five.
The season two finale of Jersey Shore was the most-watched non sports program with 6.07 million viewers followed by Boy Who Cried Werewolf on Nickelodeon on Saturday night with 5.82 million.

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.
