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

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.
