Combined broadcast/cable weekly rankings, Aug. 15-21: Advantage, Olympics

olympics-ratings-aug-18-16

The final week of the Olympics takes up all of the top of the combined ratings rankings for Aug. 15-21, unsurprsingly. NBC’s previews of “The Voice” and “Superstore,” plus an extra episode of “Big Brother” on CBS, meant less room for cable shows further down the chart.

Six cable shows made the Top 25 in adults 18-49 for the week, led by “Fear the Walking Dead” at 1.6. That’s down from 16 (including ties) the previous week.

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