Sorry for the delays and thanks to Douglas for the data (and happy Passover to TravisYanan!). The format is a little different than usual, but you'll figure it out.

Some of this data has already been posted separately, but a lot of it hasn't and I know many of you just can't get enough of Sam Axe and Game of Thrones!

NBA playoffs led Sunday night with adults 18-49, with the 2.5 adults 18-49 rating for game one of the Knicks/Celtics easily topping everything. Storage Wars scored a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, and Khloe & Lamar lost a tenth from their premiere to score a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

The Killing was up a tenth from its first two weeks to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Breakout Kings was steady with a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating.

The Real Housewives of Orange County was steady with  a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

Army Wives was steady with a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

At the time of this post, I hadn't seen ratings for The Borgias on Showtime yet.
