Sunday Cable Ratings: Kourtney & Kim Top The Night + ‘Housewives Atlanta,’ ‘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This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.


Kourtney & Kim Take New York dipped a tenth of a point from last week’s premiere, but that was still enough to lead all cable shows Sunday with a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Without a lead in from The Walking Dead, Hell on Wheels dropped sharply, down 0.5 points to a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Robert’s jealous of my special relationship with Nene (as well he should be) as my girl and her Real Housewives of Atlanta was steady with last week’s 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.

Next Iron Chef fell a tenth of a point vs. last week to a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating.

HBO’s Boardwalk Empire rose two tenths for the second week in a row to a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. HBO’s Hung season finale had a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating (it wasn’t in the top 100 last week).

Dexter was even with last week at a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating but Homeland was down a tenth to a 0.4 rating with adults 18-49.

The premiere of Bravo’s Chef Roble & Co. drew a 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

I’ll post information on these other premieres and finales if/when they arrive later from @TVBill:

Sunday’s Premieres:
National Geographic Channel: Alaska State Troopers at 9p
Syfy: Neverland at 9p

Sunday’s Finale:
HISTORY: Around the World in 80 Ways at 11p

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.
