Black TV Ratings for Week of September 8 - 14
Black viewers of Thursday Night Football were 18 percent of total audience

(September 17, 2014) The debut of CBS' Thursday Night Football attracted a total audience of 20.8 million viewers for the game, of which 18 percent -- or 3.8 million -- were black. The broadcast gave CBS three shows in the top five for the week, and displaced the usual winner -- NBC's Sunday Night Football -- for total audience and share.

CBS took back its regular title of most watched TV network in black households thanks to the NFL, with 16.4 million watching 12 of its Top 25 shows. NBC was pushed to second place with 10.5 million viewers across seven shows. Fox had 4.5 million for five of its programs.

The total number of viewers for the Top 25 shows in black households, according to Nielsen was 32.2 million, or a slight drop of two percent from the previous week.
