Combined broadcast/cable weekly rankings, Aug. 8-14: Olympics-heavy slate makes room for cable

nbc-rio-2016-logo

The weekly broadcast rankings were top-heavy for Aug. 8-14, with NBC grabbing the Top 7 spots thanks to the Summer Olympics.

The Olympics also pushed down the numbers for some other network shows, however, making room for an increased cable presence in the combined Top 25. All but one cable show — “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,” which finished 12th among adults 18-49 with a 1.2 rating — is in the back half of the rankings.

No cable show would have cracked the broadcast Top 25 in viewers.
