This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

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.
