[via press release from Turner]

TNT

Driven by the strength of its hit original series and NASCAR coverage, TNT won the week as basic cable's #1 network in primetime delivery of its targeted adults 25-54 demo. In total viewers, TNT's Rizzoli & Isles, Major Crimes and NASCAR coverage accounted for basic cable's Top 4 programs for the week, and Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes were joined by Falling Skies and Perception in giving TNT four of the week's Top 6 original dramas on basic cable.

This past Sunday's episode of Falling Skies has gotten off to a great start, with 3.5 million viewers in Live + Same Day (+8% over the prior episode), 1.8 million adults 25-54 (+12%) and 1.5 million adults 18-49 (+13%). Meanwhile, the June 30 episode of Falling Skies has grown to more than 5 million viewers in Live + 3. Among key demos, the episode has garnered 2.6 million adults 25-54 and 2.2 million adults 18-49, growing slightly in the latter demo compared to the prior week.

TNT's Monday night lineup continues to deliver strong numbers, with the July 1 episode of Major Crimes rising to 6.3 million viewers in Live + 3, a +6% boost over the prior week. In the demos, the show averaged 2 million adults 25-54 and 1.4 million adults 18-49. TNT's new Monday night drama King & Maxwell has taken in more than 4 million viewers in Live + 3 for its July 1 episode, including 1.1 million adults 25-54 and 809,000 adults 18-49.

On Tuesday nights, Rizzoli & Isles continues to reign, last week picking up 8 million viewers in Live + 3 for its second episode of the season. In key demos, Rizzoli & Isles grabbed 2.8 million viewers in Live + 3 and 2.2 million adults 25-54. The July 2 installment of Perception attracted more than 5.1 million viewers in Live + 3, including 1.8 million adults 25-54 and 1.4 million adults 18-49.

TNT's light-hearted Wednesday night drama Franklin & Bash scored its best performance of the season so far last week, garnering 3.3 million viewers in Live + 3 (+6% vs. the prior week). In key demos, the show also chalked up season-best Live + 3 deliveries of 1.4 million adults 25-54 and 1.2 million adults 18-49.

TNT's exclusive presentation of the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona powered by Coca Cola ranked as basic cable's #1 sports program for the week among total viewers (5.7 million) and the #1 program overall among adults 25-54 (2.5 million). The race delivered a 3.5 U.S. HH rating, up 6% over last year's 3.3 U.S. HH rating, while total viewers were up 4% over last year's average of 5.5 million total viewers. Saturday's Coke Zero 400 telecast is the highest-rated and most-viewed NASCAR race on TNT since 2010 (Daytona - 3.6 U.S. HH rating and 6.1 million total viewers).

Viewership for this year's Coke Zero 400 peaked during the final 15 minutes of the race with 7.3 million total viewers and a 4.5 U.S. HH rating. TNT televised the final 34 laps (nearly an hour of live race coverage) without commercial interruption courtesy of sponsors Coke Zero and Sprint.
