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 Mad Men.

    LOL @ iCarly’s ratings. The show is officially done!

  • LJ

    AC75, as long as you are watching GOT I won’t call you a troll. I can understand you not liking the shadow baby, and the show is really meant to build towards the second half and take off. Everything is now set up. The rollercoaster is at the top and is about to to start rolling. GOT is a show that is adapting a series of novels and the show itself is more like a series of 10 hour movies than an episodic series.

  • AC75

    @LJ

    Thanks.

  • Zillajay23

    Mad Men gets the critical acclaim and it’s viewers are usually die hard it’s one of my all time favorite shows this season has been great so far. It’s not for everybody and definitely not for the casual viewer it’s very character driven but it will always grab headlines for it’s high quality and vast amount of critical acclaim. The amount of negotiating and money they spent on Weiner to do 2 more seasons you can bet they are going to make them and sell them to Netflix and for syndication not to mention DVD and Blu-ray sales.

  • Rodrigo

    The Borgias and The Big C are on par with last season. Aren’t they?

    I hope Mad Men and The Killing go back up next week.

    Veep and Girls are solid — wow at Game of Thrones.

    All the best shows are on Sunday.

    I just got home and I look at the comments section. I Love The Farm is a loser. He just looks at this site all day and bashes a show he doesn’t watch because he thinks its funny. If this is fun for him, then you really have no life. Mad Men know matter what, will be on for two more seasons. Nobody cares if you dislike the show.

  • anyalock

    Overall loving GOT continual place on top even contending with NBA – i think a lot of the drops we saw this week were a reflection of the finals so curious to see how things proceed next week.

  • Joe

    Glad to see Girls is a miserable failure. It is truly one of the most unbearble, overrated shows I have ever seen.

  • RHONJd

    Big, yet expected, drop for Real Housewives of NJ. I’m sure next week’s episode will rise! #TeamTeresa

  • Charles

    Hope that Breakout Kings can get renewed!

  • chrisss

    @Joe

    Yet it’s already been renewed and it’s averaging around 3.5 million viewers over its multiple airings per week.

  • Mikhael

    @AC75: A troll is someone who flames or bashes a show (in this case), never someone who relentlessly praises it. For that, the term ‘fanatic’ or ‘fan’ would suffice. It seems people actually forget the obsessive connotation of that word.

    I Love the Farm needs to reevaluate his life if hating on anything constitutes as fun. I will never understand this reasoning. Hating on a show by calling it a POS indirectly hates on the very people working on that show, people who make a living off of their hard work and dedication. Let’s not do that – you know, hate on other people. If you want to, IMDB boards are the gutters of the internet and will welcome you with open arms. But we do not need TVBTN to resemble it in any form.

  • BrieK

    I think “The Killing” is done. I will enjoy watching the rest of the series and I hope they end it properly.
