Jersey Shore again led cable for the week ending February 7 with 8.256 million viewers

Pawn Stars continued to impress setting series highs for the second consecutive week with both of last Monday's (January 31, 2011) with American Pickers pitching in to give History a dominant Monday night.   Though down from the heights of its resurrected premiere on BET, The Game continues to impress.

Repeats of NCIS (7) and SpongeBob (6) combined for more than half of cable's top 25 most-viewed programs for the week.

And I know some of you are just dying to know how Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl did! It averaged  1.73 million viewers Sunday from 3p-5p ET.  But over the course of the 12 hour marathon (6 airings of a two hour broadcast) 9.2 million watched at least a part of Puppy Bowl.
