Game of Thrones again easily led Sunday cable with adults 18-49 -- but its its 1.8 rating was down only a tenth again this week after sliding by the same amount last week. Real Housewives of Atlanta was second place for the night with a modest 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, up from last week's 1.1 rating.

Bonus from @TVBill

Borgias 10pm: 534,000 viewers, 0.2 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.

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 Ice Loves Coco.

    @SV: Trisha’s Southern Kitchen pulled in 1.124 million viewers at 10:30 AM, #2 for the entire day (Chopped at 10 PM was #1). Hunger Hits Home, however, only averaged 741K viewers at 8 PM.

    Good to see Game of Thrones staying on top, but I hope it does not continue to dip.

  • Rocco

    Rosie who?

    @SarahL
    Good to see Game of Thrones staying on top, but I hope it does not continue to dip.

    It’s fine; actually, it’s very stable – all three episodes this season have fallen in the 3.76 to 3.86 million viewers range for their initial airing.

  • I Love the Farm

    I don’t resent Mad Men. I have never seen it so how can I resent it? What happened was during the TWD season, I was so annoyed by all the haters of TWD that I decided to try hating on someone else’s show to see what it’s like. And Mad Men was the natural target.

    I would say it’s fun to hate on something, even when you don’t genuinely hate it. Such is the dark side of humanity.

    BTW, to illustrate I am not a blind TWD fan, I declare Robert Kirkman’s new AMC crime show Thief of Thieves dead on arrival. TWD is pretty good (not great) and Kirkman is OK, but the reason I watch is the zombies. Kirkman’s slow soap-opera storylines make it economically (and probably from a censor’s perspective) viable to have a zombie show on TV, and for that I am grateful, but frankly AMC would have been better served extending and strengthening TWD or creating a second zombie show.

    And no, I don’t think you can have too many zombies.

    @Nick
    Thank you very much indeed for replying!!!

  • AC75

    Ep. three of Game of Thrones was better then the first two of the season, but overall it’s been pretty lackluster thus far. So the slight dip in ratings sorta doesn’t surprise me that much. I’m drained with the Arya show already, and thank god Joffery and Daenerys weren’t around. All three make me want to destroy my TV.

    Get rid of the children and make it all about Peter Dinklage.

  • JJ

    Girls will go down in coming weeks. It was a dreadful pilot.

  • kate

    I loved the scenes when Tyrion made his one-on-one conversations with Varys, Lord Baelish, and Maester Pycelle. It was hilarious!

  • poweranimals

    That’s great for Shake It Up. :D

  • John A

    Cancel Mad Men? Its the highest rated season so far.

  • Freddy Arrow

    Sundays at 8:00 and 10:00 aren’t all that different than other nights of the week, but 9:00 is crazy competitive. Its no surprise broadcast nets have trouble at that time. The top 6 cable shows at that hour equals the big 4 broadcast nets in the demo.

  • SarahL

    I am not surprised that The Client List got a bump this week. I saw quite a bit of positive buzz about it on a couple well frequented TV blogs/forums. Jennifer Love Hewitt has her own little fan base. We’ll see how long it lasts.

  • Rob

    Game of Thrones is my favorite show on TV right now although I thought this week was a little uneventful. @Remote Patrolled.. good article and agree. Get over it and join the real world.

  • Andies

    Is the rating for the Killing steady??? I still don’t why they put the Killing along with Mad Men… The killing is getting like zero attention next to Mad Men.. what a bad move by AMC…

  • rick

    @ I Love The Farm Are you for real? Because you sound mentally unhinged in your hatred for Mad Men.

    At first I thought you were playing a parody of someone who hates a show, but now I just think you’re unstable. To hate a show you’ve never seen? Dude, you’re not normal.

  • Tomboy

    Does anybody know what Victorious got on Saturday?

  • geo

    @ I Love the Farm: I’m with you on the Thief of Thieves thing. I’ve read the first issue of the comic and it sucked.

  • richie

    @ I Love The Farm you should have a show id watch it :)

  • leah

    I’m so happy for Legend of Korra. The team behind this animated show should be proud of their hard work.
