Cable TV Ratings: "SpongeBob" & "Family Guy" Still on Top, "Scooby" Movie Scores
For the second week in a row, both SpongeBob SquarePants and Family Guy were the two most watched animated programs on cable in total viewers for the week of July 5-11. SpongeBob placed 10 out of the top 25 spots for the week, while Family Guy placed two. SpongeBob‘s highest ranking was #6 for the “Clash of Triton” special, which we reported ratings for last week. Family Guy placed #19 and #21 with about 3.7 million viewers each showing.
