The Walking Dead fell a tenth of a point with adults 18-49 vs. last week, but still easily led Sunday cable with a 3.1 adults 18-49 rating. The second episode of Hell On Wheels dropped 0.3 points vs. last week to a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Still good, but the week to week declines have got to worry AMC.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup championship final race from Florida crossed the finish line with a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating on Sunday afternoon.

Nene cannot be stopped, as Real Housewives of Atlanta rose a tenth for the second week in a row to a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Next Iron Chef drew a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, even vs. last week.

HBO's Boardwalk Empire fell another tenth of a point to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. HBO's Hung was not in the top 100 list, will add it later when @TVBill's information arrives.

Dexter was even with last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 and Homeland was down two tenths to a 0.4 rating with adults 18-49.

TLC's Sister Wives fell a tenth of a point to a 0.9 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.
