Cable Ratings Round-Up (Week of February 26-March 4): 'Monk,' 'Psych' Go Out on Top for Usa
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- The season finales of "Monk" (5.7 million, #3) and "Psych" (4.5 million, #4) helped give USA the top four programs on cable last week. Leading the charge then was its Monday mainstay "WWE Raw" with its 9:00 (6.1 million, #2) and 10:00 (6.2 million, #1) editions.

Among adults 18-49, "Raw" averaged a 2.4 rating/6 share over the course of its two hours with "Monk" and "Psych" pulling in a 1.5/5 and a 1.4/4, respectively. Also making the top 15 for the network: the season finale of "Nashville Star" (3.0 million, #14) and a Monday repeat of "Law & Order: SVU" (3.1 million, #12).

As for the other cable networks, Discovery Channel's controversial special "The Lost Tomb of Jesus" on Sunday saw 4.2 million viewers tune in, the channel's best numbers since 2005's "The Flight That Fought Back." Not so lucky was VH1, which saw just 684,000 viewers watch the bow of "Dice Undisputed" while 1.7 million tuned into Monday's finale of "The (White) Rapper Show."

And finally on Sci Fi, Sunday entries "The Dresden Files" (0.94 household rating, 596,000 adults 18-49) and "Battlestar Galactica" (1.09 household rating, 1,030,000 adults 18-49) continued to fade as each once again hit series lows among households.
