"TNT's refreshed and recharged drama brand is soaring this summer, and that is due in large part to these three enormously popular dramas," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM).

"The Last Ship has become this summer's top drama among key adult demos with its epic scale and visceral storytelling. Major Crimes continues to be one of the most enduring and popular crime-drama franchises on television.

"And Falling Skies has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year's climactic final season."

The Last Ship ranks as basic cable's top-rated scripted series this summer with adults 18-49 and adults 25-54.

Falling Skies, meanwhile, has averaged mover 5.5 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery; while Major Crimes it at 7 million by that same measurement.
