‘The Bobby Brown Story’ and ‘Mayans M.C.’ land high: Cable top 25 for Sept. 3-9

Just like with the broadcast top 25, there were several live sports broadcasts that dominated cable for the week of Sept. 3.

ESPN landed all 3 of the week’s top spots in the adults 18-49 demo, starting with its broadcast of the Virginia Tech vs. Florida State college football game, which scored a 1.9 rating. The network’s additional NCAA football coverage as well as its broadcast of the Clemson vs. Texas A&M game rounded out the top 3 with matching 1.4s.

Meanwhile, the series premiere of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off, “Mayans M.C.,” was the fourth highest-rated cable show of the week with a 1.1. BET’s Tuesday and Wednesday night installments of “The Bobby Brown Story” followed closely behind it with a pair of 1.0s. ESPN’s previously-mentioned college football broadcasts led the week in total viewers too with 5.58 and 4.49 million viewers each.

Elsewhere, after losing the lead to “Hannity” the week before, MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show” returned to the top of the week’s cable news broadcasts in total viewers with its Wednesday night broadcast landing just slightly higher than the Thursday night “Hannity” (3.63 million) with 3.67 million.
