This week we look at cable's best non-sports performer in primetime.   With the exception of Monday Night Football and weeks laden with sporting events (e.g. baseball playoffs on TBS), USA usually tops basic cable primetime in total viewers and adults 18-49.

Note, the numbers below are for the week ending December 5 (it's the last full week of data available).  If you want to see how the most recent episodes of WWE Raw, Psych and Burn Notice did, check out the daily cable ratings section.

Reruns of NCIS (12) and Law & Order: SVU (6) combined for 18 of the top 25 spots, with seven of those telecasts grabbing 3 million or more viewers:
