>Not much change at the top of the weekly cable ratings chart, with Jersey Shore, Pawn Stars and Teen Mom 2 leading the pack.  However, all three shows were down from recent highs as we enter the February sweep and these shows face nothing but original episodes on the broadcast networks. 

Tosh.0 returned to Comedy Central for another burst of original episodes and score a very good 1.9 rating with young adults.  As it hits all-time series highs on CBS Thursd, Big Bang Theory is also performing extremely well for TBS in the 10 pm hour weeknights.
