With the number of scripted television offerings spreading the viewer pool ever thinner, and more Americans turning to streaming video online, primetime ratings for many of the heavyweight cable entertainment networks continue to decline.
History, A&E, Espn and MTV were top-20 networks shedding 25% or more of their adults 18-49 audience this summer, while USA, TBS, TNT, FX, VH1 and Bravo were other top-tier networks to lose more than 15% of their audience, according to Nielsen “most current” estimates for the June 1-Aug. 30 summer session.
TNT and USA have long been the summer cable leaders when it comes to original dramas, and they have been among the hardest hit by what’s been a virtual across-the-board ratings decline for returning scripted series and a lack of new breakout hits. They’ve also been stung by fading numbers for off-net repeats of broadcast hits.

And although the rookie cop assures the lieutenant that he does get it, he quickly learns — as do those of us at home — that the police department’s Public Morals Division doesn’t “curb” vice as much as it sweeps vice under the rug.

This has not been a good summer in the ratings for scripted programming — viewership for nearly all returning shows are down versus last year and cable has been hit particularly hard — but there were a few cable standouts last week.
The big “A” reveal on the summer finale of ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” delivered the show’s best rating in both adults 18-49 (1.4) and adults 18-34 (2.1) in nearly two years and its largest overall audience (3.09 million) in 18 months, according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” estimates. The 18-49 rating was also the best for any ad-supported scripted program this summer, and the 18-34 score was the best for any scripted series since the season finale of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” in May.
(And on the social media front, “Liars” had another monster showing: With 1.6 million Tweets, Tuesday’s hour ranks as the No. 3 most popular cable TV series episode on record. »
