Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards easily topped cable viewership for the week with 6.2 million viewers followed by both hours of WWE RAW and How To Rock (which aired after the Kids Choice Awards).  HBO’s Game of Thrones was 7th with 3.9 million viewers which is impressive considering that HBO is only available in 30 million homes.
