BET Awards week's No.1 cable show, VH1 most watched cable net in black homes

(July 6, 2014) The BET Awards 2014 was the clear winner for most watched cable shows in black households during the last week of June. The cable special set a record for total viewing audience. However, black viewership dropped by six percent from last year's total audience, from seven million to 6.5 million.

Also repeating last year's ratings for the last week of June, VH1 was the week's most watched cable network during prime time in black households, with 8.1 million viewers across four shows. BET took second place with its single airing of its awards show. Third place went to OWN, which booked 5.4 million for four shows.

The total number of viewers for the Top 25 most popular cable offerings among black viewers, according to Nielsen, was up 11 percent from the previous week to 34.8 million.
