NEW YORK, June 10 -- Lifetime Television's watercooler series "Army Wives" smashed through the competition on both broadcast and basic cable on Sunday night. The drama trounced all the broadcast networks in W18-49 ratings during the 10PM (ET/PT) time period.

These numbers powered Lifetime to its highest-rated Sunday prime since September 2007 among W18-34 and W18-49, and propelled the network to #1 for the entire week in prime W18-34.

All four Sunday telecasts reached more than 8.8 million P2+.

Page view traffic on Monday, June 9, to Lifetime Digital properties, including myLifetime.com and the "Army Wives" show site, shattered the five-year mark set on Sunday. Traffic surged 155 percent year-to-year for the day.
