Sunday Cable Ratings: ‘True Blood’ Slips , ‘Falling Skies’ Steady + ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Leverage,’ ‘In Plain Sight,’ ‘The Glades’ & More
The dramatic Japan vs. USA Women’s World Cup Final lead all of Sunday television with a 4.7 adults 18-49 rating and 13.458 million viewers. Note, that’s for the full coverage including pregame, we did not see numbers (even in the ESPN press release) for just the “game window.”
True Blood led Sunday primetime (broadcast & cable) with a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating. down a tenth from last week. Keeping Up with the Kardashians was second for the night with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, up 0.3 from last week. Falling Skies was steady with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. History’s Ice Road Truckers was up 40% from last week to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating. Real Housewives of New Jersey was up a tenth versus last week to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Leverage bounced back 38% to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. Curb Your Enthusiasm continues to enjoy its True Blood lead-in and was down only a tenth from last week’s premiere to a 0.8adults 18-49 rating.
I posted the Breaking Bad premiere numbers yesterday, but there it is again below in all its 1.1 adults 18-49 glory -the second best season premiere ever for an AMC show trailing only The Walking Dead.
Info on The Glades, In Plain Sight, Ice Loves Coco 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.
