Consistency in viewership has been a hallmark of WWE content on USA for years, and that characteristic shone through again last week as the wrestling feature’s 2nd hour led cable in 18-49 delivery during the week of Jan 12-18 with 2.69mln. The 1st hour delivered 2.51mln in the demo, just behind the 2.52mln garnered by VH1’s “Real Chance of Love.” Bravo’s “Top Chef” (2.2mln) and ABC Family’s original movie “Another Cinderella Story” (1.9mln) completed the top 5. FX’s “Nip/Tuck” was next with 1.85mln, followed by MTV’s “Real World XXI” (1.79mln). A pair of “Meet the Browns” eps on TBS averaged 1.77mln 18-49s to nab spots 8 and 10, buttressing a “Family Guy” ep (1.77mln) on the Turner net. Notably, the initial 2 “Browns” eps hit the top 10 last week as well, but averaged a far-greater 2.34mln.
