History is having a good run with two telecasts in the top ten and four in the top 25.  Pawn Stars is a cable star.  Disney’s Good Luck Charlie also made a strong debut on Sunday night trailing only WWE RAW and Pawn Stars for the week.  Four repeats of NCIS made the top ten, and six made the top 25.  It’s Leroy Jethro Gibbs’ world when it comes to cable viewers.

In Plain Sight’s premeire was #11 for the week, and the Law & Order: CI premiere was #19.  FX’s Justified fell out of the top 25.

Discovery’s Life fell way down on Easter Sunday (down was a recurring them both last Friday and Sunday) with its fifth and sixth installments.  After huge numbers for the first two episodes in the premiere week and with both episodes averaging nearly 5.3 million viewers last week, it’s best episode did 3.429 million on Sunday night.

As usual, we have already posted separately quite a bit of  data for shows that aren’t on the list above. Give our site’s search feature near the top right of the site a try if you’re looking for Stargate Universe, Spartacus: Blood and Sand and other shows.

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…
