Only in the weekly top cable show posts are you likely to see  iCarly and Hannity in the same sentence!  SpongeBob and The O’Reilly Factor, too!

Good news/bad news.   The good news is that pretty much almost everything in the top 25 from iCarly’s series high numbers for its Monday night special (leading in to Big Time Rush) to Hannity and Greta (fueled by last Tuesday’s election in Mass.) to Wizards of Waverly Place to the Lifetime movie The Pregnancy Pact to the Jersey Shore finale to the mid-season premieres of Burn Notice and White Collar were already posted.

The bad news for our regular readers is  you’ve already seen all that stuff, just not ranked as it is below.

We even have already posted a bit of stuff that isn’t on the list, like the Caprica premiere on Syfy and even Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand.   Unfortunately we can’t post everything,  but we post quite a bit, so in addition to the recommendations for finding cable ratings below, I also recommend our site’s search feature near the top right of the site.

We always post whatever data we see via press release or other trade publications.  You can  subscribe to our RSS feed and  you can also follow @TravisYanan on Twitter.  During the week he usually posts some (not all) cable results for each weekday, usually late in the afternoon on the east coast (and Friday night data isn’t posted until Monday) and he posts the links to that info on his Twitter account to the info on Marc Berman’s PI Forums.  You should also follow @TVBill (it’s not Bill Gorman, but he is a TV ratings junkie and sometimes posts cable ratings info. You can also follow me on Twitter, sometimes I will post some cable ratings, though I am not taking requests there…
