House of Payne’ and Disney repeat their performance of previous week


It was déjà vu all over again for the top 25 most poplar shows among black households. TBS’ “House of Payne” continued to dominate the top of the chart and again was the only program to attracted more than a million black cable watchers. However, adults made their presence known mostly among the top five shows. Younger viewers pushed their favorites to even bigger gains.

Disney was again the top network, with more than half of the top 25 shows airing on the channel. BET followed, again with four shows. TBS posted three.

The total number of black households watching the top 25 during the third week of July, according to Nielsen Media Research, was 16.5 million. That’s basically a repeat of the previous week’s 16.2 million.
