You could say BounceTV is more than a little excited about out-delivering BET five times in total day the week of October 12, including twice on Monday (P25-54: 83,000 to 75,000 and P2+: 189,000 to 174,000). “We are incredibly focused on chasing down BET as we believe Bounce TV will become the No. 1 African-American network on television,” EVP ad sales, Elverage Allen tells Cynopsis. “We have had four consecutive quarters of growth and just wrapped our best quarter ever in ratings, up 30% prime year over year. And September was the most watched month in our history. If Bounce were a cable network, it would be in the top 10 for African-Americans, delivering more black adults in prime than TBS, TNT, FX, AMC and about 100 other cable networks.”
