CNN catapulted to the #3 and #4 spots in the weekly viewing charts due to coverage of the earthquake in Chile on Saturday. The 5pm hour on Saturday was high is because that’s when interest in a possible Hawaiian tsunami was at its highest.

Separately, we have already posted a bit of stuff that isn’t on the list above( Damages, Psych and Leverage among them) and even Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand and and Syfy’s Caprica.

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 specific show data we received directly and 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…
