vmas-weekly-ratings-aug-28-16

Despite being down year to year, the MTV Video Music Awards still finished atop the adults 18-49 rankings on cable for the week.

The VMAs posted a 1.8 rating in the demographic on MTV, good enough to beat out “Fear the Walking Dead” (1.6) for the top spot. TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” led the viewer rankings with 4.75 million, a good-sized bump over the previous week’s 3.87 million.
