Sunday Cable Ratings: ‘True Blood’ Bounces Back, ‘Falling Skies’ Steady + Women’s World Cup, ‘In Plain Sight,’ ‘The Glades’ & More
After going low over July 4th weekend, as expected True Blood perked up by 87% to a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, easily leading cable for the night.
The dramatic Women’s World Cup soccer match where the USA defeated Brazil was on the map, finishing second for the whole day with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating – more than triple the MLB game of the week later that day (Giants/Mets).
Falling Skies hardly dropped over the July 4th weekend, so there was no bounce back. It was steady with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.
Curb Your Enthusiasm premiered to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and its most-watched episode in 7 years.
Leverage fell hard over the July 4th holiday, and bounced back only a tenth to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.
Info on The Glades, In Plain Sight, Ice Loves Coco, the Kardashians and more is below.
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.
