True Blood led Sunday primetime (broadcast & cable) with a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating, steady versus last week (though down a few total viewers). For Sunday night the 10pm hour of Discovery’s Shark Week was second with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.  Falling Skies was up a tenth to a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating,  and Real Housewives of New Jersey were down a tenth to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians was down another tenth to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.  Entourage shed 0.2 from its premiere to a 1.2adults 18-49 rating,  and Curb Your Enthusiasm was steady with a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

Leverage has bounced around this season — this week it bounced back up 0.2 to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. In Plain Sight was also up 0.2 to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.  Amid chatter that renewal discussions are not going well between AMC and Sony, Breaking Bad slipped 0.2 with adults 18-49 to a 0.7 rating.

Info on The Glades, Ice Loves Coco and much 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.
