Black TV Ratings for Week of July 8 - 14
'Under The Dome' continues to be TV's No.1 summer show with black households


(July 17, 2013) There may be fewer eyeballs focused on TV during the summer, but CBS' "Under The Dome" is attracting more than its fair share of watchers. One of only two shows to pull at least a million viewers, the sci-thriller claimed the No.1 spot on the Top 25 for the third consecutive week.

CBS remained the most watched TV network with 6.7 million across 11 shows on the Top 25. NBC moved up to second place with four million for six of its programs. ABC finished third with 2.4 million for just four shows on the chart.

The total number of viewers watching the Top 25 most popular shows in black households, according to Nielsen, was up 18 percent over the previous week to 16.3 million.
