Sunday Cable Ratings: ‘The Walking Dead’ Goes Out on Top + Kardashians, ‘Housewives’ ‘Soul Train Awards,’ ‘Hell On Wheels,’ ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ ‘Homeland,’ ‘Dexter’ & More

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

The Walking Dead rose 0.4 with adults 18-49 vs. last week and its mid-season finale easily led Sunday cable with a 3.5 adults 18-49 rating.

People who never watched the Kardashian shows anyway might be in an uproar about being duped by a publicity stunt of a wedding, but bad news for them: it worked!  The season premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take New York scored a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, its highest ever for a season premiere.

Hell on Wheels was steady from its third episode to its fourth with another 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

Bill’s girlfriend Nene might be unstoppable but this week she was slowed down a bit (blame the tryptophan?) as Real Housewives of Atlanta declined a tenth to a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. Next Iron Chef drew another 1.1 adults 18-49 rating, even vs. last week.

HBO’s Boardwalk Empire rose two tenths to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating. HBO’s Hung was not in the top 100 list, will add it later when/if we see the info.

Dexter was down a tenth to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating but Homeland was up a tenth to a 0.5 rating with adults 18-49.

TLC’s Sister Wives rose two tenths to a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating.

I forgot to include it in the table below, but The Talking Dead averaged a 0.6 rating with adults 18-49 and 1.069 million viewers from midnight to 1am.

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.
