Top 100 Primetime Cable: March 13 - 19, 2017

What did most viewers watch on cable this past week? Based on the top half of this week's top 100 shows, it would have to be News and NCAA Basketball. Of the top 30 shows, only eight are not news or basketball and of the top 50, only 16 are outside of those two options. TNT and TBS push four games into the top 15 and an additional six into the top 50. FOX News pushed most of its M-F, primetime shows into the top half of the weekly chart, with all four night of THE O'REILLY FACTOR, in the top ten.

With all that, THE WALKING DEAD was still cable's #1 show, commanding a 4.7 rating in Adults 18-49, along with a total viewing audience of 13.3 million. The season premiere of INTO THE BADLANDS (#11), which followed TWD, was #2 in scripted originals and entertainment programs, but had massive erosion out of TWD.

FIXER UPPER (#15) was tops in the non-scripted genre, drawing 3.2 million viewers. Airing on Tuesday night, it was immune to the March Madness bug and did not have to compete with the big games. LOVE & HIP HOP (18) was second in the genre, collecting 3.1 million viewers and the third overall best A18-49 ratings, with a 1.6 score.
