Black Cable TV Ratings for Week  September 16 - 22
OWN is No.1 network for the week's Top 25, thanks to Tyler Perry's 'Better or Worse'

(September 26, 2013) After weeks of climbing the chart of cable favorites in black households, the OWN network ranked No.1 among networks on the Top 25 for the third week of September. It achieved the title thanks to a three-hour, back-to-back block Wednesday night showing of Tyler Perry's "For Better or Worse." Total audience for the six episodes was 6.2 million viewers. ESPN's "Monday Night Football" was the week's No1 cable show.

The second most watched cable network behind OWN was VH1, which posted 5.8 million viewers across four shows. In third was USA network with 2.9 million for three shows.

The total number of viewers for the cable Top 25, as cited by Nielsen data, was virtually the same as the previous week.
