With NFL and college football out of the way,  Monday Night Raw took the top two spots for the week, followed by NCIS, SpongeBob and  The Secret Life of the American Teenager led the cable charts for the week.

Some other stuff not in the top 25 table:

  • Keeping up with the Karddashians is keeping up its numbers with 3.57 million on Sunday night.
  • A 10:30a Saturday airing of Fanboy & Chum Chum averaged 3.481 million
  • The 8:30p Saturday telecast of True Jackson, VP averaged 3.302 million
  • As already posted, Jersey Shore averaged  3.266 million on Thursday, more than a million more than Real World: DC’s 2.02 million on Wednesday Night.
  • For the Love of Ray J 2 averaged 1.563 million, VH1’s most-watched show of the week.
  • The Chuck marathon on Syfy Thursday averaged  between 513,000 for the least-viewed episode to 951,000 to the most-viewed.
  • For you Cablevision folks missing your Food Network and HGTV,  Sunday’s Worst Cooks averaged 2.05 million, Food Network’s most viewed show of the week.  Thursday nights House Hunters averaged 2.137 million to lead HGTV

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).
