Black Cable TV Ratings for Week  August 5 - 11
VH1 hits the trifecta on cable Top 25, and edges out BET for most watched network

(August 14, 2013) After weeks of battling for black cable viewers,' VH1 took first, second and third place on the Top 25 cable shows chart. Season two of "Marrying The Game (pictured)," which premiered on August 5th, joined "Love & Hip Hop" and "T.I. and Tiny" in the top spots.

That rally gave VH1 the title of most watched cable network in black households with 11.5 million viewers across four shows. BET posted a very close second with 11.3 million for ten of its shows. OWN repeated last week's performance with 4.8 million for four shows.

According to Nielsen, the total number of viewers for the Top 25 jumped 14 percent from the previous week to 33 million.
