Black Cable TV Ratings for Week of Aug. 31 - Sept. 6
OWN's 'Haves & Have Nots' beats VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop' to regain week's No.1

(September 10, 2015) After conceding the top spot for one week, Tyler Perry's "The Haves and the Have Nots" returned as the week's No.1 cable show in black households. It has held the position for four of the past five weeks, this time winning by the narrowest of margins.

VH1, however, did not have to concede its title of most watched cable network among the Top 25. It claimed 6.3 million viewers for three of its charted shows. OWN posted 4.6 million viewers for three shows, closely followed by Adult Swim with 4.3 million across seven shows.

The total number of viewers for the 25 most popular cable shows in Black households, according to Nielsen, was down from 26.9 million the previous week to 24.7 million.
