The preseason NFL game on ESPN between the New York Giants and the Chicago Bears scored a 2.2 rating with adults 18-49 to lead the night. WWE Raw's two epiosdes scored a 1.8 and 1.7 adults 18-49 rating in their respective airings each down a tenth from last week. Secret Life of the American Teenager which was down a tenth to a1.0 adults 18-49 rating at 8pm. Part two of the Basketball Wives reunion special was steady vs. part one with  a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Rizzoli & Isles was down a tenth to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and The Closer was steady with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Eureka was steady with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and Warehouse 13 was down a tenth to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating. Alphas was up a tenth to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating. Summer Glau effect?

The Lying Game scored another 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, steady versus last week, but was up 84,000 viewers to 1.47 million. Weeds once averaged a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating, though its 722,000 viewers was 52K higher than last weeek, The Big C once again averaged averaged a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating but its 624,000 viewers was 97K higher than last week (thanks for the Showtime numbers go to our friend @TVBill).

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our (non-TravisYanan) source, and several typical TravisYanan featured shows were not on the list. Will add extras that Travis reports later below. I generally filter out repeats, and kids shows, and non-primetime shows.
