Game of Thrones again easily led Sunday cable with adults 18-49 with an 1.8 rating. Real Housewives of Atlanta was second place for the night with a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating.

Not in the table below: HBO's Girls drew drew 858,000 viewers in its first airing at 10:30.

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.

    Yeah, Game of Thrones holding steady! Great spooky episode.

    Veep rated lower than HBO’s break? Unbelievable. It was okay. Nothing special.

    LOL! Girls did not even make the list.

    I am not surprised that The Client List continues to inch up. I see a lot of positive buzz about it in media forums.

  • rob60990

    The Client List hit another series high! :D

  • Max

    The Killing is stable but is stable by being very low. Between the season one backlash and continued feeling that the show is way too slow for some people, I think AMC might just let it wrap with season two and be done.

    And HBO is dumb. They aired that “Break” following GOT when they should have just started VEEP right away. It would have retained better. Of course, HBO is going to count the repeats and try and make both VEEP and GIRLS sound like they are getting many eyeballs.

  • DW

    it is interesting that girls isnt in the top 100 but it doesnt mean that people are not watching it. its a very good show but if you have to get up early the next day you say to your self i’ll catch it on demand tomorrow.

  • Manny

    Any Vh1 numbers?

  • RJ

    @Max,

    VH1 has aired 14 of 19 episodes thus far.

  • Number Cruncher

    @ Max

    When this season of Mob Wives premiered it was only due to have 12 episodes, however VH1 quietly extended the order (I suppose it happened after they decided to cancel Mob Wives: The Sit Down) so this season will have 17 regular episodes plus a 2 part reunion bringing the total to 19 episodes. The second part of the reunion is supposed to air on May 27th.

  • Max

    @RJ

    19 episodes. WOW. That’s a hell of an order for a reality show on VH1. And I assume it will return in the fall. So basically, it will only be off the air for the summer. That’s a whole lot of banking on a series that doesn’t exactly pull in fantastic numbers.

    Or am I off and these are good numbers for the network?

  • Jen

    Can anyway explain the rational of Showtime having the first 3 episodes for their main Sunday shows on demand so many weeks in advance of the actual premier of the episodes? It would clearly seem to be affecting the viewer numbers of the Sunday night viewers of the shows.

    I guess next week will be the test for how these shows are doing in regards to viewers?

  • Dylan

    Who’s got Saturday numbers?

  • Max

    @Number Cruncher

    Thanks. I had wondered what happened to The Sit Down. I guess doing a Jersey Shore type after show didn’t work out for Mob Wives as it does for MTV.

  • Liz

    @Max

    I wonder what HBO will do with both these shows since one has more acclaim than the other yet it is the one with lower ratings. Of course, HBO could ultimately renew both but we shall see.

    There is no question that HBO will renew both. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the press release today.

  • richie

    Looking for VH1 tough love and Stevie Tv

    thanks

  • AppleStinx

    Good showing for ‘Chopped All-Stars’ even though it was the round featuring four ’2011 Food Network Star’ also-runs, of which only one (Penny) is good enough to cook competitively in the finals. Penny naturally won. Next Sunday’s episode is the 4th and last of the qualifying rounds; it’s the round featuring regular ‘Chopped’ judges Alex Guarnaschelli, Marc Murphy, Marcus Samuelsson, and Chris Santos. Haven’t seen Murphy or Santos cook on TV yet. It will be great to watch them cook and, more importantly, sweat.

  • brandojames

    Good numbers for GoT. Glad to see that it’s still holding. The episode was good. I watched VEEP. I really enjoyed that. Hopefully it doesn’t fall too far. The ratings are pretty on par if not a little better than most of HBO’s comedies. So that’s good.

  • Jay

    Girls seems like kind of a weird show for HBO. Can the target audience even afford HBO? I’m sure none of the characters in the show can.

  • Max

    @Jen

    I don’t get it either. I viewed all 3 episodes of Nurse Jackie and The Big C in a row the day they were available on my FIOS service. This coming weekend is episode four of both shows so I will be back to watching when it airs. No clue why they would shoot themselves in the foot like that by having the show available that far ahead of time. Unless of course, the amount of people viewing it via ONDEMAND and other services are so few that it doesn’t really matter.

  • Thomas

    Army Wives really is impressive! +3M and 1.1% after 6 years! Good thing that Lifetime ordered 23 episodes.

  • Jimmy

    Showtime has done this before, so it isn’t new. I guess it doesn’t really matter to them.

  • Petar

    GoT rulezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    The show will go at least with 10 seasons! Next season will be only half of the 3 book! So 4 swason will be second half!
