Sports programming, as usual, was very good to the ad-supported cable networks this spring – as evidenced by this roundup of the top 50 shows in total viewers. But History kicked some major booty with its miniseries The Hatfields & The McCoys, which outranked any ol’ smooth move by LeBron James through June.

What else can we deduce from this top 50 list? Well, maybe we should join the gazillion other folks who tune in regularly to Pawn Stars; there might be something good there. And births pull in new viewers, man! Just ask Good Luck Charlie on Disney.
