Bouncing back from a holiday weekend lull, the True Blood season finale was up 0.4 ratings point vs. last Sunday to a more typical 2.8 adults 18-49 rating to lead all cable shows on Sunday night.

The Entourage series finale surged up 0.6 ratings points to a season high 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.  Curb Your Enthusiasm's season finale caught some of that updraft as well, rising 0.4 points to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating, and its 2.04 million average viewers was the series highest in seven years.

Breaking Bad also rose, up a tenth to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating.

A new Real Housewives of New Jersey drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating.

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.
