Top 100 Primetime Cable: August 22 - 28, 2016

Original scripted programming takes the top three spots in this week's cable ratings. TNT's crime dramas, RIZZOLI & ISLES and MAJOR CRIMES take the #1 and #2 positions, respectively, with R&I getting 4.7 million viewers. FEAR THE WALKING DEAD was the #3 show of the week, hauling in 3.7 million viewers but getting 60% more in the A18-49 demographic than the two TNT shows, combined.

THE MTV Video Music Awards was the top show in the A18-49 demographic, with a 1.8 rating, two tenths above FEAR TWD. The VMAs took a steep downfall from the 2015 show, losing 2.7 million viewers and 30% in the A18-49 demo.

WWE RAW and SMACKDOWN were the top two sports draws of the week. RAW collected over 3.3 million viewers and a 1.3 demo rating, while Tuesday's SMACKDOWN event drew 2.7 million viewers and a 1.0 demo rating.

The season finale of NAKED & AFRAID XL was the top reality series, with 2.4 million viewers and a 0.8 demo rating. That edged out LOVE & HIP HOP: HOLLYWOOD by 200,000 viewers, but lost to the VH1 series in the A18-49 demo by four-tenths of a ratings point.
