Black Cable TV Ratings for Week of Aug. 27 - Sept. 2
'Love and Hip Hop' and other cable favorites attract 10 million more than TV's Top 25

(September 6, 2012) VH1 and BET continue to battle it out for title of most watched cable program in Black households. "Love and Hip Hop Atlanta" held on to the No.1 spot during the last week of August and grew its Monday night audience by 10 percent over the previous week. It was followed by "Single Ladies" which narrowly beat BET's "Sunday Best" again for the No.2 spot.

With school open, Disney had to relinquish its young audience in prime time, giving the most watched cable network title back to VH1, which had 9.3 million viewers over five shows. BET followed with 7.5 million across five of its shows. TBS was third with 2.9 million for three programs.

The total number of viewers watching the Top 25 shows in Black homes, according to Nielsen, was down three percent to 29.4 million.
