Sunday Cable: ‘True Blood’ Finale Bounces Back, ‘Entourage’ Finale Leaps; Plus ‘Breaking Bad,’ ‘Curb,’ ‘Housewives NJ,’ & 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This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

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.
