Game 2 of the NLDS Cardinals/Phillies matchup topped primetime cable Sunday night with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. Real Housewives of New Jersey was close behind with a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.  HBO's Boardwalk Empire shed 0.2 with adults 18-49 in its second week, falling to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, tying the season premiere of Dexter on Showtime with adults 18-49 (Boardwalk Empire had more total viewers - we posted the viewer numbers for Dexter and Homeland yesterday, but Homeland debuted to a 0.4 rating with adults 18-49). HBO's Hung made its season premiere to 1.11 million viewers and a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.

TLC's Sister Wives was down only a tenth to a  1.1 adults 18-49 rating. Breaking Bad was up a tenth from the previous week to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Updates via @TVBill:

How To Make It In America: 0.467 million viewers, 0.2/1 A18-49.

Lifetime Movie: Hunt for I5 Killer: 2.149 million viewers, 0.6 A18-49.

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.
