  • USA's "WWE Raw" is back on the chart after falling off in recent weeks, and it was quite a comeback. The show drew almost 10 million viewers Monday night, easily cable's ratings winner. It was, incoincidentally, the massively successful live wrestling series' 1,000th episode since it premiered in 1993.
  • The CW's "Nikita" rose three spots on the chart, but don't be misled -- its number of check-ins only rose slightly over last week. It's ascent back toward its old home at the top of the chart is resultant more of falling check-ins for last week's more social shows -- "Breaking Bad," "The Big Bang Theory" and "Supernatural" all suffered huge drops this week than for any renewed social buzz around "Nikita" itself.
  • CBS's veteran reality series "Big Brother" makes its debut on the Top 10 chart at No. 8. This is the program's 14th season, but its premise is proving to have longevity -- the show drew 5.3 million viewers Sunday night.
  • The youngest millennials tuned in and checked in to Fox's Teen Choice Awards broadcast Sunday night, which managed to hit the chart at no. 9 and drew more than 3 million viewers. It was hosted by Disney alum Demi Lovato, whose single "Give Your Heart a Break" is in heavy Top 40 radio rotation. Lovato is also a new judge on Fox's "The X-Factor," so get used to seeing more of her on the chart in the fall as she and Britney Spears are sure to draw renewed social interest in the show's second season.
