Own: Oprah Winfrey Network closed out 2013 on top achieving its second consecutive year of double digit growth across key demos.  The network says, via press release, that it delivered a +16% increase in W25-54 (Women 25-54), +21% in total viewers and +76% in African American W25-54 in primetime, versus 2012. Additionally, Own ranked as the #5 primetime cable network in 2013 among all African American women. I wonder what the 4 networks are that come before it, that rank highly among all African American women. I'd guess that Bet is one of them. Maybe ABC, if only because of Scandal. What else?  Own also ranked in the top three cable networks on Tuesday nights (#2), Wednesday nights (#2) and Saturday nights (#3), among African American W25-54. Own's popular Saturday night lineup boasts the night's top six original series for African American W25-54 including Welcome to Sweetie Pie's, Iyanla: Fix My Life, Houston Beauty, Six Little McGhees, »
