Sunday Cable: ‘True Blood’ Drops, ‘Kardashians’ Jumps, ‘Entourage,’ ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Curb’ & Much More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

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.
