home run derby 2016

Cable had a better week from July 11-17 than it did the previous week, and it shows in the combined Top 25 rankings.

Eight cable shows made the Top 25 in adults 18-49, up from just three the week of July 4. They were led by ESPN’s telecast of the MLB Home Run Derby (1.9 rating), which tied for fourth overall.

Two cable shows, the Home Run Derby and the Thursday “O’Reilly Factor,” also made the Top 25 in viewers. That’s a first in the brief time TV by the Numbers has tracked the combined Top 25.
