- With huge gains over its prior four week time period average, LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT at 9p on Wednesday ranked as the #1 basic cable procedural drama of the week with a 1.7 in P18-49 and a 1.8 in P25-54. It was also the #10 basic cable program of the week overall in both demos.

- USA was home to three of the top ten basic cable prime programs for the week among P25-54 with two telecasts of MONDAY NIGHT RAW and Wednesday night's 9p episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.
