Hammer: USA Poised To Run Yearly Ratings Table


USA, which has won the primetime ratings race during each of the first three quarters, is now focusing its attention capturing on the fourth and final quarter of 2008. 

USA president Bonnie Hammer said the network will lean on the debut of the series version of The Starter Wife, the Emmy-winning miniseries starring Debra Messing that earned the network strong ratings in summer 2007, as well as special episodes from veteran shows Monk and Psych to help it finish the year as the No.1-rated basic-cable network.
