With no special or sports competition, USA Network remained in the top spot for both cable primetime adults 18-49 ratings and average viewership for the week. History, once again, was a strong second in adults 18-49 in primetime.

SpongeBob, of course, kept Nickelodeon comfortably at the top of the total day average viewership rankings.
