This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

The 2011 MTV Movie Awards topped Sunday’s cable ratings scoring a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

The Real Housewives of OC finale(off last week?) finished second with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.

The Game Of Thrones rose to a series high 2.7 million viewers for its initial airing on Sunday night, and a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

Crowded behind GoT, were a bunch of shows scoring a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating including Sister Wives, Ice Road Truckers, a Pawn Stars repeat, and Army Wives.

The finale of America’s Best Dance Crew drew a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

The Killing was up a tenth from from last week to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

Law & Order: CI and In Plain Sight returned with new episodes and scored a 1.0 and a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating respectively.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for viewership on the day from our (non-TravisYanan) source, and several typical TravisYanan featured shows were not on the list. Will add extras that Travis reports later below. I generally filter out repeats, and kids shows, and non-primetime shows.
