Black TV Ratings for Week of September 21 - 27
'Empire,' 'Rosewood,' 'Scandal, and 'Murder' push Sunday Night Football to No.4

(September 29, 2015) The season debut of Fox's historic hit "Empire" again knocked the former perennial No.1 show, NBC's "Sunday Night Football" out of first place on the Top 25 chart. But the hip-hop drama wasn't along. This season a fourth show joins with ABCs "Scandal" and "How To Get Away with Murder" as tacklers of the NFL. Fox's new crime drama, "Rosewood," starring Morris Chestnut, debuted as the week's No.2 with 4.3 million black viewers and pushed football to fourth place.

CBS continued its reign as the most watched TV network in black households, posting a total of 15.9 million viewers across ten shows on the top 25 chart. NBC followed with 13.5 million for eight shows. ABC was third with 10.9 million for five shows.

The total number of viewers for the Top 25 shows in black homes, according to Nielsen, was up 7.3 percent over the previous week to 55.8 million.
