USA continued to outperform The CW, delivering more P18-49 (+21%), P25-54 (+54%) and total viewers (+66%) than the broadcaster thanks to the winter season premieres of the USA hit originals BURN NOTICE and WHITE COLLAR, ratings powerhouse WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW, episodes of the top acquired series' NCIS and LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT and hit movies including the network window premiere of �The Bourne Ultimatum,� �50 First Dates� and �I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.�

On Thursday night, it delivered more total viewers (5.35 million) and households (3.81 million) than anything else on cable. The winter season premiere delivered more P18-49 than the premiere of ABC's "The Deep End" on the same night and was #1 in its time slot among M18-49, beating all cable and broadcast.

It was also the top entertainment telecast of the day among total viewers (4.72 million) and households (3.37 million). The last time more P25-54 or households tuned into this time period on USA was in 2003; this was the biggest P18-49 audience to the time period since 2004 and the best total persons audience since 2005. The telecast was the only entertainment offering in cable prime to deliver over 2 million P25-54, 2 million P18-49, 3 million total viewers or 2 million households Tuesday night.
