Introducing Race Data! Although it will not be published frequently, whenever I can get a hold of some data based on race, I will publish it here. The table is organized based on African-American household rating, and both Cable and Broadcast shows are mixed together. In the table you can find the total number of African-American viewers for various shows during the week of October 19-25, 2015.
On FOX, EMPIRE led the week in African-American viewing, with 8.66 million AA viewers, which represented about 71% of its total 12.28 million viewers. ROSEWOOD, on the same network was a bit more modest, with only 2.99m AA viewers, although this did represent 57% of its total viewers. On ABC, every SHONDALAND show made the list with SCANDAL leading (2.90m / 29%), followed by HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER (2.52m / 36%), and finally GREY'S ANATOMY (1.46m / 16%). On BET, two episodes of BEING MARY JANE registered at 2.05m AA viewers (92%), and 1.94m viewers (88%). OWN had several notables on the list: IF LOVING YOU IS WRONG scored with 1.84m AA viewers, LEGENDS: LIVE AT THE APOLLO had 742,000, and IYANLA, FIX MY LIFE 607,000. Other notables on the list were WALKING DEAD (1.38m / 11%), THE VOICE (909,000 / 8%), and THE SIMPSONS (1.48m / 22%).
