With last Sunday's MTV onslaught in the rear view mirror, True Blood likely got hit with a holiday weekend lull, falling half a ratings point vs. last week to a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. Viewership dropped by almost a million viewers, to 4.39 million.

The penultimate episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians jumped 0.4 points vs. last Sunday to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. It was the only one of the notable cable shows to rise on the holiday weekend Sunday.

Entourage slipped three tenths to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.  Curb Your Enthusiasm was down three tenths to a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating. Breaking Bad somewhat bucked the holiday trend holding steady a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

There were no new episodes of either Real Housewives of New Jersey or Leverage on Sunday.

We only receive the top 100 cable shows for adults 25-54 for the whole day from our principal 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 come from other sources later as we receive them.
