Eleven cable programs make the Top 25 (ties included) in adults 18-49 for the week, the most in the four weeks since TV by the Numbers started tracking combined ratings. Ten cable shows also made the viewer Top 25, the highest of those four weeks.

Entertainment shows “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” “WWE Smackdown” and “WWE Monday Night Raw” made the rankings as well.
