Black TV Ratings for Week of March 5 - 11
NBC makes some gains with black viewers, but CBS still the favorite network

(March 14, 2012) Last week NBC was represented on the Top 25 TV chart by just two shows. This week it has gained favor with black audiences for two more. "Grimm" and "Who Do You Think You Are" this week make the grade for the first time.

For the second week of March CBS was the most watched TV network with 15.5 million black viewers watching 15 shows. Fox claimed only 5.8 million for four of its programs. NBC was a distant third with 4.2 million also for four shows.

The total number of viewers for the most popular shows in black households, according to Nelsen, was 27.3 million or eight percent fewer than the previous week.
