Combined broadcast/cable weekly rankings, Sept. 5-11: NFL helps crowd out cable

snf-ratings-sept-11-16

The return of the NFL to the broadcast networks, along with rising ratings for several broadcast entertainment shows, moves the combined rankings for Sept. 5-11 heavily toward the broadcast side.

Just two cable shows — ESPN’s Monday college football contest (3.0 rating) and “Fear the Walking Dead” (1.5) — made the Top 25 in adults 18-49. Likewise, the college football game and the “Rizzoli & Isles” series finale are the only two cable programs to crack the combined viewer rankings.
