In a very rare week, USA Network was bumped out of the top spot in both cable primetime viewership and adults 18-49 ratings by two different networks.

Thanks to the first round of the NBA playoffs, TNT moved into the cable top spot for adults 18-49 primetime ratings last week. And it was Lemonade Mouth that gave Disney the boost to the top of the cable primetime average viewership last week

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