Black TV Ratings for Week of April 1 - 7
Final Four fails to unseat 'Scandal' as the most watched TV show in black households

(April 9, 2013) Despite having one of the most anticipated match-ups in years, the Final Four and NCAA Championship men's basketball games were no match for the Olivia Pope. ABC's "Scandal" beat out CBS for the week's No.1 show on the Top 25 most watched TV programs in black households.

CBS retained its status as the most watched TV network of the week with 16.5 million across 13 shows. It was followed by ABC with 8.5 million for six shows, and NBC pulling 3.3 million to three programs.

The total number of viewers for the Top 25, according to Nielsen, dropped by eight percent from the previous week to 32.9 million.
