TNT opened August with another big win as basic cable's most-watched network in primetime for the sixth consecutive week. TNT continues to be propelled by its chart-topping original series, with Major Crimes and Rizzoli & Isles delivering basic cable's biggest audiences for the week and the network's blockbuster hit The Last Ship taking first place among scripted series with adults 25-54. TNT's ratings success follows its win for the month of July and its sweeping victory as basic cable's #1 network in Q2 2014.

DVR usage continues to deliver big returns for TNT's summer dramas:

Last Monday's Major Crimes, which featured a guest appearance by Luke Perry, scored the show's biggest Live + 3 deliveries of the season-to-date, with 7.7 million viewers, 2.3 million adults 25-54 and 1.8 million adults 18-49. Major Crimes also scored its season-best Live + 7 deliveries, with the July 14 episode garnering 7.4 million viewers, 2.3 million adults 25-54 and 1.8 million adults 18-49.

Tuesday's episode of Rizzoli & Isles grabbed 7.2 million viewers in Live + 3 delivery, with more than 2.4 million adults 25-54 and 2.0 million adults 18-49.

Demonstrating the growing popularity of Cold Justice, those Live + 3 figures also surpass the show's Live + 7 delivery for the prior week's episode, which topped out with 2.0 million viewers.

Through the first week of August, TNT's dramas continue to dominate the competition. Rizzoli & Isles, Major Crimes and The Last Ship rank as basic cable's Top 3 most-watched scripted series for the summer-to-date. They are joined by Falling Skies, Murder in the First and Perception in giving TNT six of basic cable's Top 10 scripted series this summer:
