Combined broadcast/cable weekly rankings, July 25-31: Cable makes up half the Top 25

combined-top-25-july-25-31-16

With a slightly down week on broadcast and the Democratic convention boosting cable, the combined Top 25 for July 25-31 has a pretty egalitarian look.

Thirteen of the Top 25 shows (including ties) among adults 18-49 aired on cable. CNN’s coverage of the Democratic convention has the bulk of those spots, including the No. 2 ranking for Thursday’s prime-time spot. “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” and all three hours of “WWE Monday Night Raw” also made the Top 25.
