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.

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought on cable that only the number of viewers matters (not the demo). Especially with premium cable, right?

  • lisa g.

    So, Atlanta housewives remain the queens of Bravo. There seems to have been a drop off in viewership for NJ from the Atlanta lead-in at 9pm despite the heavy promotion.

  • Kaylie

    Does anyone happen to know what Austin and Ally on Disney at 8pm get?

  • Kyle7

    @BrieK: That’s only true for premium cable. Non-premium cable channels still have to sell ad time, and most of them use A18-49 to do so. I’ve heard that some use 25-54, and obviously more kid-oriented channels will be using various kid demos, but for the most part 18-49 still rules the roost.

  • Brandon

    @number cruncher – “mob wives” is slated to start shooting for the third season this july with an expected late december/early january premiere date.

    @lisa – the drop-off was slight, only around 200K-300K. that’s not bad at all. go, bravo, go!

  • Zach

    Showtimes Nurse Jackie, The Big C, and The Borgias are low to nonexistent because after the season premiere episodes of all three shows they put the next two episodes on showtime on Demand and showtime.com so people were able to watch them before they aired.

  • I Love the Farm

    Mad Man has declined every single week this season. For weeks, it has been pwned by commercials/show previews on a network for which you have to shell out extra cash (HBO). Then, last week, it started getting pwned by a show on a network that targets half a demographic (Lifetime). Now, even Ax Men, which costs a buck and a quarter to make, is showing Mad Man what it means to be a real man…show.

    It’s time to cancel the POS Mad Man. This overly expensive, overhyped, and overrated show needs to go. I mean even The Killing generates two-thirds the audience of Mad Man even though you know it has less than one-third the costs. And if this is the best Mad Man has done, it should have been cancelled much earlier.

    Now watch all the overly defensive and sensitive pansy Mad Men fans attack me and the truth.

    Long live The Walking Dead!

  • jordan

    @i love the farm

    No one has to attack you. It’s not worth it. You’re not worth it. Mad Men will be on for two more seasons after this season. The contract was already made. It’s happening whether you like it or not. So stop writing the same comment every week. You’re boring and obvious. Nobody cares if you love TWD or hate Mad Men. You’re predictable. I watch both of them. TWD is the biggest ratings hit on cable. And Mad Men is the biggest critical darling on cable, since it wins the Best Drama at the emmy’s every season. Four straight. It’s going to have seven seasons.

  • I Love the Farm

    Jordan!

    How many hundreds of times did you have to hit “refresh” on your browser today waiting for the moment to arrive for me to comment? How many hours of your day do you spend on this message board?

    Oops, sorry it’s a comments sections to a blog post, not a message board. My bad.

  • jordan

    Actually, I just got home and read the ratings and the comments board. Nice try. You’re really not that smart a person. I didn’t even realize you just wrote that comment. I don’t look at the times.

  • Decker

    How can anyone say that this season isn’t as good in Game of Thrones?!!!??????!!?!!!! This season has been excellent, it sets the table for EVERYTHING that’s gonna happen in seasons 3 & 4!!!! Giddy up!!!!!

  • Decker

    I really don’t know what all the hype is about Mad Men??? I’ve just finished season 2 on DVD and I must admit , zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!! It really doesn’t go anywhere. They go to work, drink, smoke, cheat on their wives, while drinking and smoking, then go to work to drink and smoke. Best drama 4 straight years my azz!!!!!

  • SteveA

    a 0.1 difference isn’t an easy win

  • lindsey1

    BrieK. On premium cable it’s only the subscribers that matter and the live ratings really don’t mean anything except to give a vague idea of how many people are watching any particular show. It’s the total number of viewers in any given week that really matters because that is how they track whether or not a show is a success or a failure. They don’t really care when a person watches.Only if.

  • SMG4E

    The Client List just continues to increase week to week! Which is a good thing, considering it’s an amazing show.

    Episode 1: 2.79 million viewers, 0.9 rating
    Episode 2: 2.85 million viewers, 1.0 rating
    Episode 3: 2.75 million viewers, 1.1 rating

    Also, the third episode was the best episode yet, in my personal opinion. Can’t wait to hear from Lifetime of its renewal! I know it’ll be soon.

  • William

    Surprised by that drop in viewers for Breakout Kings. I thought this season was better than last. At least demo is steady

  • Justin Poppiti

    Anyone know the ratings for Spider Man and Avengers on Disney XD? Thanks.

  • AC75

    @Decker

    “How can anyone say that this season isn’t as good in Game of Thrones?!!!??????!!?!!!! This season has been excellent, it sets the table for EVERYTHING that’s gonna happen in seasons 3 & 4!!!! Giddy up!!!!!”

    It’s quite easy to say that actually. It’s been pretty flat. I didn’t love season 1, but so far, this season has been a step down. It’s bloated and meandering. And you should not have to know the source material to enjoy a TV show.

  • Barbarossa

    @Decker. I didn’t like the 2nd book either, so yeah as AC said it’s pretty easy to say what I did

  • rrd111

    Game of Thrones Late Telecast increased from last week so I think the show overall is attracting new viewers. Loved the books and am loving how the show is not deviating from the material. Especially last week..I remember reading that scene and it wasn’t nearly as eery as it was portrayed on TV…such a great show
