This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

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.
