Nothing new at the very top of cable’s 18-49 delivery (live+SD) rankings during the week of Feb 2-8, as the 2nd hour of WWE on USA took the title for the 2nd straight week, with 2.66mln, and USA’s “Burn Notice” again notched runner-up status, with 2.41mln. A Lakers/Celtics battle on TNT was next with 2.38mln, followed by WWE’s 1st hour (2.35mln) and Bravo’s “Top Chef” (2.32mln). FX’s “Nip/Tuck” (2.02mln) kicked off the trailing 5 programs in 6th, ahead of 2 eps of “Family Guy” on TBS, both of which combined with a 10th-place ep to average 1.79mln. USA’s “Psych” (1.78mln) completed the top 10.
