Black Cable TV Ratings for Week  March 11 - 17
Real Housewives of Atlanta takes No.1 cable show for fourth consecutive week

(March 24, 2013) After trading first and second place with its rival show, BET's Real Husbands of Hollywood, Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta notched its fourth No.1 week in a row. BET's Husbands took second place.

The younger viewers had control over the remote, however, and Disney won the most watched cable network title with 5.9 million tuning in six shows. BET claimed second with 5.2 million across five shows. VH1 settled for third with 4.3 million for four shows.

The total number of viewers for the Top 25 cable shows in black homes, according to Nielsen, was just one percent larger than last week at 26.2 million.
