Since the return of "Storage Wars" on July 20, A&E has placed number 2 among all networks in the hour among total viewers, trailed only by CBS - beating out NBC, FOX and USA.

Other series leading the way this summer include "Beyond Scared Straight," "The First 48," "The Glades," "Gene Simmons Family Jewels," "Intervention," "Hoarders" and "Billy The Exterminator."
