beyonce-lemonade-ratings

The release of Beyonce’s visual album/film “Lemonade” put up solid numbers for HBO Saturday, drawing a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 787,000 viewers. It ranked in the Top 30 in the demo for the day.

As it did for much of the week, coverage of the NBA Playoffs sits at the top of the rankings. Two evening games (Portland-L.A. Clippers Game 3 and Thunder-Mavericks Game 4) on ESPN sit at the top of the chart, while a pair of afternoon games on TNT (Heat-Hornets Game 3 and Pacers-Raptors Game 4) rank third and eighth.

Note: The chart has been updated to include HBO’s World Championship Boxing coverage of the (brief) Gennady Golovkin-Dominic Wade title fight.
