tv television platforms flexibility

On cable for the week of 3/28-4/03, VH1’s “Love and Hip Hop” season 6, the reunion part 2, won the week in cable with 18-49s, according to Nielsen, with 1.729 million average viewers Live+SD on Monday night.

The lone sports game in the top 10 was Friday’s 11pm NBA game between the Boston Celtics and the Golden State Warriors, which got 1.448 million average Live +SD 18-49s. Other shows in the chart were FX’s “American Crime Story” once again, with 1.406 million, three showings of “Family Guy” on different nights, and MTV’s “Teen Mom.” Check out the full chart below from Nielsen.
