With NFL and college football out of the way,  Monday Night Raw again took the top two spots for the week, followed by NCIS, SpongeBob and  Sarah Palin’s debut on Fox News Channel on The O’Reilly Factor.

MTV’s Jersey Shore made it into the top 25, as did TNT’s Leverage.   Jersey Shore was the number one program for the week with adults 18-34 and Leverage was the #4 program with adults 18-34

Sadly, I’ve made the decision to no longer field requests.  We always post whatever data we see via press release or other trade publications already.  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 either…

Update: top 25 list updated to include shows that were left off the initial list I had (if you’re interested in why, see comments in the comment section).
