Miley Cyrus' Twerktastic 'VMA' Performance Tops Weekly Ratings -

Memo to anyone who has suggested heads will roll at MTVover Miley Cyrus’ exuberant twerking of teddy bear and Robin Thicke at Sunday’s VMAs: The VMAs clobbered all competition for the week, with a 5.2 rating in the key 18-49 demo. The closest thing to actual competition faced by Cyrus and her Fantastic Foam Finger — who continued to be a hot topic among morning infotainment programs two days later — was the Robertson clan on A&E’s Duck Dynasty. It clocked a  4.5 rating. NBC’s Sunday Night Football, though tops among broadcasters, trailed far behind with a 2.7 rating.

Among all viewers, CBS’ Under The Dome reigned, despite the Time Warner Cable blackout in three of the country’s Top 5 markets, with 10.639 million viewers. That said, Dome didn’t beat Duck Dynasty by much (10.07 million).
