Black TV Ratings for Week of April 2 - 8
Premiere of 'Scandal' starring Kerry Washington gives ABC record-setting debut

(April 10, 2012) The heavily promoted debut of the political drama, "Scandal," gave ABC a major boost in black viewers and made the newcomer one of the network's most successful debuts in years. Nearly two million black viewers tuned in, bringing ABC even with perennial favorite CBS for the most watched network of the first week of April.

CBS had an overall black audience of 13.2 million for its 11 Top 25 shows, as did ABC, which had ten shows on the chart. Fox was the very distant third with 2.7 million for two shows.

The total number of viewers watching the Top 25 shows in black households, according to Nielsen data, was the same as the previous week at 31.3 million.
