Top 100 Primetime Cable: July 31 - Aug. 6, 2017

People are tuning in cable news more and more and their networks of choice are MSNBC and FOX News. Between the two networks, they took 22 of the top 27 spots, which is over two-thirds of their Monday-Friday night line up. RACHEL MADDOW, on Monday, was the top news program, ranking 5th and collecting 2.9 million viewers, but TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT was the most consistent, pushing four shows between the first two of MADDOW.

Obviously, GAME OF THRONES continues to be the #1 show on cable, crossing over 10 million viewers for the second time this season. The HBO drama quadrupled the #2 show in the A18-49 demographic, with a 4.6 rating and nearly tripled it in total viewers, with just under 10.2 million viewers.

WWE Wrestling is tops in sports programming, with RAW (#2) and SMACKDOWN (#15). But, at this time of the year, BASEBALL is mostly the only other sports option.

In reality programming, we have to go all the way down to the #36 spot, with LOVE & HIP HOP, taking in 2.1 million viewers and a 1.1 demo rating At the #44 spot, for LIVE PD posted 1.9 million viewers and a 0.6 demo rating.
