With no NBA Playoff game to compete with, Game of Thrones moved back on top of the cable roost on Sunday with a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating, although that was down a tenth of a point from last week.

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.

  • Chris

    Basically, every scripted series currently showing on pay cable that isn’t Game of Thrones is a flop.

  • Epicfail037

    Yikes. Another terrible week for Nick (except Korra, yay). If Saturday’s big Victorious special doesn’t do great, then yeah.

    Also, interesting that the 8 PM Good Luck Charlie had over 20% more than the 7:30 airing. I hear it’s permanently moving to 7:30 PM while Austin and Ally is on. Let’s see how well that keeps up.

    @Nick: Allow me to ask, where do you get this info from? Do you work for Nielsen or something?

  • Ram510

    Nice to see Young Justice doing well!

  • Victarion_Greyjoy

    Can’t say I’m surprised there are only a few good shows on air and Game of Thrones is one of those… I am still hoping we will break the 4mil barrier by season finale! :)

  • ME

    Boardwalk Empire is a success, too

  • Luke

    The Killing rebounds after last week’s low, eh?

  • Bob

    Army Wives took a hit from Desperate Housewives. It will be back up next week.

  • Chris

    Boardwalk Empire is a reasonable success, but it’s not currently showing, is it now? :)

  • brandojames

    Nice ratings for GoTs. I was so glad to see a character come back after not seeing them for a while.

  • greenf

    I’m glad The Killing is up.

    Real Housewives of NJ is very stable at a high level. Ax Men too.

    Legend of Korra is doing great. How many episodes is there in season 1?

  • Max…Not the “Scandal” Max

    Nice rebound for the Killing!!! Hope it will suffice for renewal…new season is pretty good!

  • illogic

    No, not really. Game of Thrones just performs exceedingly well.

  • Rabbit

    Nick, do you have the ratings for Loiter Squad and Metalocalyspe on Adult Swim?

  • Mon

    The Killing up by 0.2 to 0.5! Great show!

  • Simon

    The Killing!!! Nice jump, what that three tenths or two tenths up?

  • DW

    if ratings = greatness then wrestling is one of the greatest shows ever. i think anything above a 0.3 in cable is pretty impressive since there are so many channels to choose from.

  • SV

    @Nick
    Thanks so much as always for your fantastic info!

    Would you tell me which are FOOD’s highest rated Sat. AM shows?

    Also, I believe Sunday’s numbers for Food Network Star’s opener were the lowest or one of the lowest ever, right? I believe the format change, plus the fact that they decided to premiere it in the middle of May instead of June as they were doing, helped for the show to hit bottom. There’s lots of network TV finales, sports playoffs and increased cable competition in May.

    Thanks again, Nick! I appreciate your contributions a lot!
