Cable Ratings: ESPN Post Game Coverage Leads Quiet Super Bowl Sunday + 'Shameless,' 'Californication' & More

With the Super Bowl absorbing most of the eyeballs, most of the cable nets took the night off from original programming and ESPN's post game coverage of the Super Bowl was the night's top-rated show with adults 18-49 with a 1.2 rating.

With DVRs, replays and on demand options,  HBO and Showtime were in "let's air new episodes anyway!" mode.  Showtime's shows made the list below.  HBO's Luck isn't on the list but via "Nick" in the comments it drew a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating and 425,000 viewers. Fans shouldn't worry until next season though since it's already been renewed for a second season.

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.

The list below is long but you can use your browsers "find on page" feature (usually CTRL+F or CMD+F) to search - that's probably the easiest way to find House of Lies.
