USA was the only cable network to deliver over 1 million in P18-49 or 2 million households in this week's prime and was one of only two to break 1 million in P25-54 or 2.5 million total viewers. USA also won the total day crown with 556,000 in P25-54, 4% over #2 TNT.

USA continued to show what a cable network is capable of this week as it brought seven original series to the screen, including two freshman shows, and saw double-digit gains week to week for most of them, planting undisputable flags for the network on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. USA was home to 7 of the week's top 10 entertainment telecasts in basic cable prime among P25-54 and half of the week's top ten for P18-49.
