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.
