MTV's Music Video Awards top broadcast entries
A TV rarity, but maybe not for long: Music Video Awards beat everything on broadcast channels
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' MTV was responsible for a television rarity last week.

The Nielsen Co. said the most popular TV show on the air during the past week was on cable, not on broadcast. It was MTV's Sunday airing of the Video Music Awards, seen by 12.44 million people. The broadcast show with the biggest audience was Tuesday's edition of "America's Got Talent" on NBC.

It's not clear how many times cable shows have surpassed broadcast ones, although it did happen in 2007 when the Disney Channel premiered the movie "High School Musical 2."

It didn't hurt that it was late summer, and broadcast schedules were clogged with repeats and reality shows.
