TNT's coverage of the NBA Playoffs was the evening's top cable performer, earning the network a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.  Game of Thrones was second and rose a tenth again vs. last week to earn a 2.0 rating.

Update: lots of additional shows (including GIRLS, The Big C and The Borgias  via commenter Nick are below the normal table.

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.

    WooT! GoT rocks!

  • Emily

    Awww, I’m so happy people are watching Game of Thrones!

  • Petar

    GoT rulzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • DW

    0.7 for mad men. 250,000 spent on a Beatles tune. money wasted. could of spent that money on 25 zombies. AMC , i hope your happy. :)

  • Colin

    Oh boy, The Killing is dead.

    Any numbers for Girls?

  • Mon

    Oh no The Killing! :(

    On Game of Thrones, sad to see Renly go last week.

  • Brock

    Last night’s episode of Veep was absolutely fantastic.

  • Joel

    Girls? and ouch for the killing…

  • RyanCanada

    what about Girls?

  • rob60990

    Client List steady!

    Mad Men back to reality.

    Very good for Game of Thrones.

  • SarahL

    Yay! Game of Thrones increased. It was a great episode. Well deserved.

  • Petar

    come on guys why is Joffrey on that picture. I hate him. Put thre daenerys and her dragons or tirion.

  • SG

    Shannen Says? Wilson Phillips Still Holding On? Do we have a pulse?

  • Amy

    Oh no! at the Killing. I still like it. Why is it going down so much? I guess that’s no season 3 :(

  • John A

    Mad men looking crap. Glad Client list is steady.

  • SarahL

    Veep held steady. Nothing from Girls

    Wow, The Killing is not doing well.

    Mad Men‘s .7 is about what it was getting last season, right? Seems like it is really holding steady. The increase earlier in this season was the outlier.

  • KennyA

    Somebody knows THe Big C ratings and if the show still has chances of a renewal?

  • kate

    Episode 6 of GoT was, hands down, the best episode of the season! The icy mountain scenes were pretty amazing and I am liking the chemistry of Jon Snow and Ygritte.

  • RJ

    Last Sunday’s Mad Men was fantastic and playing Tomorrow Never Knows just capped off that episode. Mad Men also featured a song from the Beach Boys Pet Sounds two Sundays ago.

  • Colin

    Game of Thrones was awful on Sunday.
