Sunday Cable Ratings: ‘The Walking Dead’ Stays On Top + ‘Housewives Atl,’ ‘Hell On Wheels,’ ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Homeland,’ ‘Dexter’ & More
The Walking Dead fell 0.2 with adults 18-49 vs. last week, but still easily led Sunday cable with a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating. The second episode of Hell on Wheels dropped 0.4 points vs. its premiere to a still healthy 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.
Nene kept on coming, as Real Housewives of Atlanta rose a tenth vs. last week’s premiere to a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. Next Iron Chef drew a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth vs. last week.
HBO’s Boardwalk Empire fell a tenth to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. HBO’s Hung was steady a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating.
Dexter on Showtime was even with last week’s 1.0 adults 18-49 and Homeland was up a tenth to a 0.6 rating with adults 18-49.
TLC’s Sister Wives was jumped three tenths to a 1.0 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.
