Cable Top 25: ‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘Pawn Stars’ and ‘SpongeBob’ Top Weekly Cable Viewing
Jersey Shore again led cable for the week ending January 30. It didn’t set any records last week, but anyone rooting for Jersey Shore’s 15 minutes to be over soon shouldn’t hold their breath. Jersey Shore is spawning an entire genre. Style’s Jersylicious premiered to 928,000, tiny by Jersey Shore standards but still more than four times bigger than Style’s average primetime audience for the week.
Pawn Stars continues to impress with record ratings and nearly 7 million viewers per 30 minute episode for the two telecasts last Monday.
SpongeBob absorbed 14 out of the top twenty-five spots on the most-viewed shows rankings. Those looking for more than SpongeBob should check out the daily cable ratings or use our site search.

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.
