Black Cable TV Ratings for Week of Dec. 5 - 11
VH1's black viewers upstage 'Monday Night Football' with 'T.I. and Tiny'

(December 15, 2011) After coming close last week to having the No.1 show on the Top 25 cable chart for most popular shows in black households, VH1 knocked off "Monday Night Football" with "T.I. and Tiny." The reality show beat out the NFL game by more than a million viewers.

VH1 was the week's most watched cable network, with 31,1 million black viewers. Second place belonged to TBS, which garnered 7.4 million viewers for five programs. BET needed only three shows to edge out USA Network and the Disney Channel with 2.9 million viewers.  

Nielsen recorded 33.1 million viewers for the Top 25 cable shows in black households. That's just three percent less than the previous week's total.
