Cable Ratings Round-Up (Week of February 5-11): 'Sky' Huge for Lifetime, 'Battlestar' Hits Series Low
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Novelist Nora Roberts continued to fuel Lifetime as "Montana Sky," the network's second of four planned Roberts adaptations, drew a strong 4.8 million viewers on February 5, making it the fourth most-watched program on cable last week. Said number was on par with "Angels Fall's" nearly five million viewers from the week prior (read the story).

Claiming the top three spots however was USA with its two editions of "WWE Raw" (6.0 million, #1; 5.7 million, #2) and a new "Monk" (4.9 million, #3) while "Psych" (3.6 million, #7) also landed in the top 10.

Not so lucky was Bravo, which saw its newcomer "Top Design's" audience fall in half in its second week (872,000 viewers). "Design" opened to 1.8 million viewers behind the finale of "Top Chef" on January 31.

Also taking a hit were Sci Fi's two Sunday originals - "The Dresden Files" and "Battlestar Galactica" - each of which fell to series lows in households - a 1.23 rating and 1.17 rating respectively. Among adults 18-49, "Dresden" drew 889,000 viewers with "Galactica" pulling in 1,000,600.
