The second episode of The Walking Dead slipped two tenths of a point to a still impressive 3.6 adults 18-49 rating, still more than double the next closest competitor on cable. The 10:30p encore of The Walking Dead scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and The Talking Dead managed a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating at midnight.

The second part of a Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion special scored a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, even with last week's first part.

HBO's Boardwalk Empire rose one tenth to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. HBO's Hung was steady with a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.

Dexter on Showtime bounced back, up 0.2 points to a 0.9 adults 18-49. Homeland was steady with a 0.4 rating with adults 18-49.

TLC's Sister Wives was down a tenth with a  0.8 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.
