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.

    @Nick, would you by any chance have numbers for iCarly, How to Rock and Big Time Tour (Nick, Saturday at 8, 8:30 and 9 PM respectively)? Thanks.

  • KS

    Game of Thrones was good last night. Whoever, she gave birth to, that creature, I can’t wait to know what that is. kings + More Magic = Awesome fantasy series.

  • Bee

    wow. the client list grows for the second week in a row? i don’t watch it, but clearly that’s a series with buzz.

  • Diana Lamb

    Nick Rocks!!!!! This is the best ratings page EVER.

  • Evanmav

    Shocked that The Killing is still stable at a .6 which AMC should be fairly happy with. If im not certain Mad Men had been pulling around that demo until this year. Im just hoping that the demo doesn’t start to sink like it did during the middle of last season because I really don’t think the show has room to go any lower. Just hoping that the demo will go up during the last few episodes of this season because the buzz of the killer being revealed. And this season of Mob Wives has been extremely long, Vh1 usually doesn’t do seasons longer than 13 I thought. I think that Mob Wives Chicago wasn’t ready to be aired yet and so they wanted to prolong the regular Mob Wives so it could lead right into it, but who knows.

  • Lynn

    @Max, of course HBO is counting the repeats, as well they should. They have no advertisers to please, and a subscriber who watches a later airing (or On Demand, or on HBOGO) pays the same subscription price as a subscriber who watches the first airing.

  • SV

    @Nick
    Thanks ever so much for your extra info about Sandwich King!!! It’ll be interesting to see next week’s numbers as FOOD will show a re-run for the first time Sun AM. Appreciated again, Nick!

  • Dennis

    @Evanmav

    Season 1 of The Killing premiered with a 0.7 and went down to a 0.4 near the end of the series

    Season 2 premiered with a 0.5 and has gone up to a 0.6 in the last two weeks.
    I think its doing pretty good demo-wise

  • Lynn

    BTW, if anybody knows — how does HBO count the east coast/west coast feeds? If you are on the west coast and watch the 6 pm east coast feed, does that count the same as someone on the east coast who watches at 9 pm? What about someone on the east coast who watches the midnight (9 pm) west coast feed?

  • AC75

    Last week GOT was better than anything else this season, but this week was the worst. For me, it’s as if all the episodes spin around doing nothing with just 2 or 3 worthwhile characters holding it all together. And that insanity at the end was just depressing.

    I think it’s unlikely the show will add many new viewers now since it’s all pretty bloated. But the ratings are decent and mostly holding steady, so HBO is probably happy.

    The Killing is surprisingly steady as well, and this season has been great. The show gets a bad rap, yet it’s enjoyable and totally goes against the network TV way of tackling crime drama. But just like Game of Thrones, it’s unlikely new viewers will jump in at this point, so I think AMC has what they have. Is it enough to extend the show beyond this season? Probably not.

  • Paul

    Not surprised to see Girls fail. It is a hideous, unwatchable, mess of a show.

  • Jordan

    Just over 0.500 for The Borgias is not good. Hopefully it will still be enough for Showtime to get a renewal. It is my best reason besides Homeland to keep the Showtime package. I have a feeling The Big C will be cancelled with those numbers. Nurse Jackie looks like it could go either way to me.

  • Rocco

    Cheap reality shows are pulling in twice the audience of the Killing. I think the writing is on the wall.

  • Nick

    @Epicfail037: Here you go –

    Saturday:

    iCarly (Nickelodeon)
    -8 PM: 2.828 million viewers, 0.44 A18-49

    How To Rock (Nickelodeon)
    -8:30 PM: 2.097 million viewers, 0.26 A18-49

    Big Time Rush (Nickelodeon)
    -9 PM: 1.402 million viewers, 0.23 A18-49

  • ced

    RHOA brings in the ratings!!! damn the res of housewives dont come close

  • Cody

    I have a feeling Game of Thrones will go up next week after this week’s cliff hanger. It was a really good cliff hanger.

  • Dennis

    If you compare The Killing season 2 to Mad Men season 2 it is doing roughly the same except Mad Men’s Premier was higher

  • Rabbit

    Thanks for the numbers Nick! Do have the numbers for Loiter Squad on Sunday(11:30 PM, Adult Swim)?

  • SJ

    I’m glad that Veep opened solidly. It was really funny. Also, great numbers for The Client List. I am loving that show and Jennifer Love Hewitt is a much better actress than people give her credit for. Low ratings for The Big C (thanks, Nick! ;)) but I’m not worried.

    Wow, it is going to be an interesting Emmy race for lead actress in a comedy this year with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Laura Linney, Laura Dern and of course Amy Poehler and Tina Fey all in the mix.

  • mikee

    The Borgias, Big C and Nurse Jackie should see a bump in the ratings next week because people like me will be watching now but I didn’t watch the last 2 weeks because I saw the shows On Demand.

    GOT did great again and Veep didn’t do that bad for an HBO Comedy. I do think HBO lost viewers for Veep by having the long break between the shows.
