The with the Giants/Jets preseason NFL game on NFL Network where it didn't have a chance at big numbers (instead of ESPN) it was WWE Raw's two epiosdes chance to step into the breach and lead the cable night. They scored a 1.8 and 1.7 adults 18-49 rating in their respective airings even with last week.

Secret Life of the American Teenager was up a tenth to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating at 8pm.

Lots of premieres last night:

  • MTV's Ridiculousness had a nice start with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. Death Valley not nearly as good with a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, and Cuff'd didn't make the top 100 list for the day.
  • Basketball Wives LA started off with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating for VH1.
  • Discovery's American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior returned with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating, followed by Carfellas with just a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Rizzoli & Isles was steady with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and The Closer was also steady with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

Eureka was also steady with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and Warehouse 13 was steady with a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating. Alphas was down a tenth to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating after the guest spot by Summer Glau last week.

T.O. Show slipped a tenth vs. its premiere to a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.
