The BET Hip Hop Awards took the top spot among cable shows on Tuesday night with a 2.1 adults 18-49 rating and averaged over 4 million viewers. Boosted by the awards, the series premiere of Reed Between The Lines drew a very nice 1.6 and 1.4 adults 18-49 ratings in its two half hours.

Sons of Anarchy was steady with last week’s 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, and that did top all the regular shows on cable Tuesday night.

Tosh.0 was steady versus last week with a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Workaholics rebounded sharply up three tenths vs. last week to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Bonus ratings from @TVBill:

  • Oprah’s Lifeclass 0.1 adults 18-49 rating, 279,000 average viewers (down 16% from 333,000 Monday, same demo rating)
  • I Used To Be Fat: 0.5 adults 18-49 rating, 928,000 avg. viewers

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our primary source, if you don’t see your show it was in that top 100 list. Will add extras that arrive from @TVBill later. I generally filter out repeats, and kids shows, and non-primetime shows.
