UPDATED: SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Saturday Cable Originals: 3.14.2015

Ratings in key demos for the Top 25 original cable telecasts (plus a few other lower-rated but noteworthy programs):

ESPN’s college basketball conference tournament coverage took up all of the Top 5 slots on Saturday cable, with the ACC leading the way with 1.17.  (Other tournaments on ESPN2 and FS1 also made the chart.)  4 of the next 6 slots went to the various hours of HBO’s boxing, all in the 0.42-0.31 range, and an episode of SPORTSCENTER was at #9 on the sports-intensive day.  The only non-sports show to make it into the Top 11 was an episode of HOUSE HUNTERS RENOVATION (HGTV), up a tick to 0.42.  Elsewhere, BLACK SAILS (Starz) was up a tick to 0.17.  THE GOOD WITCH (Hallmark) took a heavy hit, down a tenth to 0.13.
