>Jersey Shore’s finale took the top spot on the cable chart this week.  Not so much because it was up (it increased only one tenth of a rating point from last week) — rather, ESPN’s Monday Night Football was way down to a 3.3 Adult 18-49 rating (down from 5.0 last week and 6.9 the week before). 

Walking Dead remained in second place (though down 0.2 from last week), while Sons of Anarchy increased one tenth from last week.  Other shows up week to week include Tosh.0 (up two tenths), American Horror Story (up one tenth), and Boardwalk Empire (up one tenth).
