Black Cable TV Ratings for Week of Nov. 28 - Dec. 4
'VH1 scores big enough week to take on 'Monday Night Football'

(December 7, 2011) Reality takes the Top 25 chart this week, with the usual exception of "Monday Night Football." VH1 notched three-in-a-row with "Love & Hip Hop," "Basketball Wives LA" and a sneak peek at "T.I. and Tiny" pulling about two million viewers each.

That was enough to give VH1 the title of most watched cable network of the week with 7.9 million watching four shows on the Top 25 chart. TBS came in second with 5.9 million for four Tyler Perry programs. BET took third most watched with five million for five of its shows.

The total number of viewers for the cable Top 25, according to Nielsen, dropped 14 percent from the previous week to 34.2 million.
