Politics was the hot topic in cable television, as the three news networks, dominated by FOX news, take 13 of the top 15 spots and 20 of the top 30 spots on the chart. FOX News owns the top three spots, with Friday night coverage of the Inauguration festivities, averaging just under seven million viewers. CNN's ANDERSON COOPER 36, on Friday night, managed to get the #4 spot before FOX News takes four of the next five spots.

The NBA game, on TNT managed to make the top 10, ranking 7th for the Monday night match up. That Cavs vs Warriors rematch of the championship series, drew 4.5 million viewers and the week's best A18-49 rating, a 1.8 score.

On the reality TV scene, GOLD RUSH tops them all, with 3.4 million viewers, ranking 17th over all. ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE and FIXER UPPER follow behind in the #21 and #23 spots, respectively.

Just making the top 30 was the week's top original scripted program, THE HAVES AND HAVE NOTS, on OWN. The drama drew 2.7 million viewers on Tuesday night. VIKINGS was 38th on the chart, with 2.5 million viewers.
