Black TV Ratings for Week of October 13 – 19
(October 23, 2014) Make it four weeks straight that ABC’s “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder” — No.1 and No.2 respectively on the Top 25 — replaced the NFL as the most popular TV programming in Black households. The only two prime time shows with Black females in the leading roles were pretty popular, too, with all TV viewers, with a total of 9.7 million watching “Murder” and 9.1 for “Scandal.” ABC’s newcomer comedy, “Black-ish” continued to place in the top ten despite a 17 percent drop in Black watchers from the previous week.
CBS maintained its position as the week’s most watched network, with 15.2 million viewers across ten shows. ABC was again second with 13.9 million for six programs on the chart. NBC took third place with a million-viewer-drop from last week to 10.8 million for six shows.
The total number of viewers for the Top 25 shows in Black households, according to Nielsen, was 45.5 million, virtually unchanged from the previous week’s total.
