UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 150 Saturday Cable Originals & Network Finals: 8.13.2016

  • SumoMe

 

 

NETWORK FINALS:  OLYMPICS coverage gained half a point to 6.8 in final numbers.  ABC’s finals were a mess, presumably because of local sports preemptions:  LAST MAN STANDING and DR KEN were each down 0.3 to 0.3/0.2, 20/20 fell 0.2 to 0.3, and BOSTON EMS was down 0.1 to 0.3.  In addition, FOX’s HOTEL HELL reruns were down 0.1 to 0.3.
