What about something like this?

week.table <- data.frame(Friday=119, Monday=173, Saturday=80,
Sunday=96, Thursday=167, Tuesday=193, Wednesday=194)
ordered <- c("Monday","Tuesday","Wednesday","Thursday","Friday","Saturday","Sunday")
week.table <- week.table[,ordered]

assuming your table always has columns named after days of the week,
you should be able to use the vector 'ordered' in a script to sort
your table as you want.  The labels in your 3d pie chart are created
using the names of from the dataframe.

Best regards,
