Black Cable TV Ratings for Week of August 13 - 19
Rihana's appearance on 'Oprah's Next Chapter' puts OWN on Top 25 for first time

(August 23, 2012) The second season premiere of "Oprah's Next Chapter" featuring singer Rihana gave OWN its highest ratings for a Sunday premiere since the network's launch in January 2011. Thanks to 1.6 million viewers tuning in, it's the first time that a prime time show from the OWN network has made the Top 25 of favorite cable shows in Black households.

The title of most watched cable network shifted back to VH1, which had 6.5 million viewers for three shows on the Top 25. Disney was second with 4.5 million across five shows, followed by BET with 3.2 million for two shows.

Nielsen reported that 27.7 million viewers tuned in the Top 25 favorite shows in Black households. That's down three percent from the previous week's total.
