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.

    Yay! The Killing went up after the cliffhanger from last week with Holder. Still loving the show. Hope it stays stable for the rest of the episodes.

    Looks like Got is not going the way of True Blood yet and increasing it’s audience. Looks to be stable at those numbers.

  • TGIF vs. Whitney

    Thank you for the NHL ratings on Saturday night.

  • KS

    Game of Thrones was awesome last night. Must Watch show.

  • Agnes

    Its not like Showtime to waste time in renewing shows – Is Nurse Jackie, Big C and Borgias toast?

  • Nick

    @Epicfail037 – No, for a cable net.

    @Rabbit – Loiter Squad had 1.476M viewers with a .54 A18-49 rating while Metalocalypse had 891K viewers with a .40 A18-49.

    @SV – Trisha’s Southern Kitchen at 10:30 brought in the most viewers in the AM (866K with a .18 A18-49) with Paula’s Best Dishes leading in the demo (855K viewers but with a .20 A18-49). Barefoot Contessa was a distant third (642K, .13 A18-49). Mexican Made Easy was 6th in viewers and 4th in the demo (569K viewers and a .16 A18-49).

    Hi @Nick -

    Do you have Sunday night ratings for the NatGeo Channel? I am a fan of wicked tuna and was hoping for season 2 but I can’t find the ratings anywhere. Can you help

  • Dennis

    Nice rebound for THE KILLING

    I would love it to get renewed, but because of the last few weeks ratings, I don’t think it will…

    Still the middle of season one got mostly 0.4′s so a 0.5 is good..

  • JJ

    Girls went up which means more people are forgetting to turn the channel after Veep or they’re using their mute buttons more.

  • LoveLee

    GOT was excellent on Sunday!

  • Becky

    GLG dropped tremendesly!

  • AC75

    The Killing jump is a surprise but I’m glad. I still enjoy it despite all the hate it gets. I’m in no way expecting the show to continue after this run, but a jump is a jump.

  • jaybpov

    It’s good to see the Borgias jump higher with almost a million viewers from both airings.

    The Big C looks like it’s dropped. The Susan Sarandon storyline isn’t that great.

    Sister Wives is back strong for TLC.

    Veep and Girls are good comedies for HBO

    Last few episodes of Mad Men have been boring. Like watching paint dry.

  • I Love the Farm

    Eight weeks.

    It took eight weeks of rank futility for the royal POS Mad Man to go from headliner to being left off the TVBTN blog posting title. Each and every week, the ratings have gone down as audience members decided they had something better to do with their time, like go to sleep early on Sunday night. Thank you, Sara, for applying the dreaded, ignominious “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…” to the royal POS Mad Man. It was sweet to read that and I know you did it for me.

    AMC stock (AMCX) bounced up from 40.50 to 42 and change since Friday, when the 1Q earnings the company announced were better than expected. Despite the ignorant conflation between The Walking Dead and Mad Man among certain analysts and financial reporters, those super 1Q earnings were generated by TWD. I am not going to run afoul of the SEC by predicting stock prices here, but rest assured these are the same morons who will be surprised when 2Q and 3Q earnings turn to mud as Mad Man’s ratings head to the toilet bowl.

    AMC has ONE star: TWD. It generates 3-5 times the audience of Mad Man at lesser cost. It is time for Josh Sapan to embrace TWD as the centerpiece of AMC’s future instead of pretending he and AMC are some sort of general hitmakers with a Midas touch. TWD is the only AMC show with the numbers to match the hype, and might be for a long time. Sapan will need to nurture the one true winner he has by investing in more episodes (ideally 24 like a real network), higher per-episode budgets, better writing, occassional cameos by big-name stars, more zombies, more grisly deaths. If AMC can improve TWD, it could generate 10+ million US audience with 5.0+ demo weekly (not to mention TWD’s huge international following). Over 24 weeks, TWD can cover two quarters of AMC earnings. Sapan also better pray HBO does not get into the zombie business.

    I am going to back off on my calls to cancel the POS Mad Man. AMC has proven so inept with its other attempts at original programming (Hell on Wheels, really?), it better keep whatever semblance of programming competence it has in Mad Man. I would, however, recommend killing off Jon Hamm and start getting its costumes from the Salvation Army to save cost.

    Long live The Walking Dead!

  • AC75

    I don’t think I’ve ever known such a dedicated hater as I Love The Farm. I hate quite a lot of shows myself, trash them when I can, but I pale in contrast to this guy.

  • SV

    @Nick
    Thank you ever so much again, Nick!!

  • Jaime

    The Killing is moving like a snail. Not at all interesting. Its getting boring every week. I’m done

  • SarahL

    Game of Thrones holding steady, nice. It was a good episode.

    I am sure that I Love the Farm is right about why Sara put the keyboard shortcut to find Mad Men in her blog comment. Hilarious! I Love the Farm‘s vitriol and hatred for Mad Men is legend on TVBTN. LOL!

  • Ladies Love I Love the Farm

    Based on the love I am getting from Sara and Sarah, all of you can start caling me Ladies Love I Love the Farm. Or L.L. I Love the Farm for short. You know, like L.L. Cool J.

    However, there is no need to call me The Hater Currently Known as Ladies Love I Love the Farm. I am not as arrogant as Prince.

  • Max…Not the “Scandal” Max

    @Dennis:

    Showtime renewed Homeland (which I Love) with 0.5 and 1.5 M viewers…and look at previous seasons of Big C, Nurse Jackie. I know AMC is not Showtime, but a with these numbers and knowing that season 3 will bring a completely new killing to solve, it gives me hope of renewal!

    Enter Sara ,Robert or Bill for a prediction on this one please!!!

  • Fischer

    FoodNetwork Star looks really low in ratings couple seasons ago it was getting 1.7
