Sunday Cable Ratings: ‘True Blood’ Falls Far & ‘Falling Skies’ Doesn’t Fall Much + ‘Leverage’

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

 

Ahead of the July 4th holiday, many networks took Sunday night (July 3) off, but two notable networks, HBO and TNT did not.  HBO aired a new True Blood (and Treme, though I didn’t see those ratings) and TNT aired new episodes of Falling Skies and Leverage.

True Blood fell by about half, dropping to a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating and 2.9 million viewers versus last week’s 3.0 adults 18-49 rating and 5.42 million. Some will also chalk the drop up to the Sunday’s episode already being available for a week online via HBO Go.

Those who love to hate Falling Skies and who were rooting for big drops will be disappointed.  Falling Skies fell a mere tenth with adults 18-49 down to a 1.4 rating versus last week’s 1.5.  Its total viewers didn’t fall very far either, dropping down to 4.07 million from last week’s 4.2 million.

Leverage fell a little harder dropping 0.3 with adults 18-49 from last week’s premiere to a 0.7 adults 18-49 ratings.

The Glades and In Plain Sight were off for the night but will return on Sunday, July 10.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our source. If you don’t see an original episode of a show here, it’s because it wasn’t in the top 100. I attempt to filter out repeats, kids shows, and most non-primetime shows. Will add extras that @TravisYanan reports later below.
