The BET Awards ’10, the premiere of the Disney movie 16 Wishes, and the USA v. Algeria World Cup match elbowed aside regular cable programming to top the week’s cable viewership rankings.

History’s Pawn Stars stayed at the top of the “regular” cable programming for the week, followed closely by the other usual cable suspects WWE RAW, Burn Notice and Royal Pains. A record setting Deadliest Catch was #7 on the week.

Betty White’s Hot In Cleveland fell down to #46 in viewership with its top airing averaging 3.37 million viewers. Still huge by comparison with everything else on TV Land.

There were no True Blood results with our regular cable ratings, but I will post what I see when I see it. True Blood averaged 4.455 million and ranked #15 for the week in viewing.

ESPN World Cup ratings from the week will be online soon in a separate post.

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.

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 we have created a special category (Overnight Cable TV Show Ratings)  to group the data we typically post each weekday from  @TravisYanan on Twitter.  During the week Travis usually posts selected 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.
