The combined Top 25 ratings for July 4-10 lean a little more heavily toward the broadcast side than they did the previous week. Where five cable shows cracked the Top 25 for June 27-July 3, only three did last week.
The three shows that did make the cut were ESPN’s telecast of the Euro 2016 final (1.7, tied for sixth) and two hours of “WWE Monday Night Raw” (1.0 and 0.9) on USA.
The cable leader in viewers, the Wednesday “O’Reilly Factor,” (4.17 million), would not have cracked the Top 25 in broadcast, so a viewer chart is not included below. In weeks when cable shows do make the Top 25 in viewers you’ll see that here as well.
