The NBA Playoffs Conference Finals were the number one cable program on Sunday night, earning a 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. Game of Thrones was in second place with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 2.0.

While they're not in the top 1oo for adults 25-54 below  here are two often requested shows:

  • The Killing 0.3 A18-49 rating and 1.312m viewers at 9pm
  • Veep 0.4 A18-49 rating and 831,000 viewers at 10:01pm

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 Sister Wives.

    If you don’t like that “POS Mad Men”, you don’t have to watch it, or fall into the alleged hype. I will be the first to say that this season isn’t as strong as the previous ones, but it’s still one of the best written shows on TV. Granted, some of the nuance is gone, but it’s still a good show.

    I have to agree that GoT’s episode was pretty epic. Lots of great moments in there, mostly by Peter Dinklage, although Lena deserves a lot of credit. Leaving out all the stuff with Dany and the Night Watch was a good idea to concentrate on the battle.

    The decimation of Baratheon’s fleet was an awesome special effect.

    I agree that Dinglage, Headey and Michelle Fairley should all get Emmy nominations.

    @doug

    I agree. The Killing has been great. Some folks just don’t like it. Could be any number of reasons, but I’m thoroughly enjoying it and look forward to it each week. The ratings have been low, this week likely a season low, but even if it doesn’t come back at least we’ll get the answers to wrap everything up in the finale. We won’t be left hanging.

  • LA Kings Riot

    Bulls/Heat – 11 million

    Spurs/Thunder – 8 million

    Clearly NBA had a big finger in the drops of all shows. GoT really should be around 1.9-2.1 normally.

  • CCV

    @SarahL…

    When Tyrion gave his speech and finished with that, I was ready to grab a sword and jump into the damn tv with them. That was a great moment.

  • KS

    Epic Episode of Game of Thrones. Hope we see at least one war per season. Cersei stole the episode.

  • AlessandroPT

    Any news about how MLB’s Sunday Night, featuring Washington at Atlanta, did on ESPN?
    Thanks a lot!

  • William

    Great episode of Game of Thrones. can’t wait for the finale…. ouch @ the killing.

    @ I Love the Farm
    I watch TWD, but am not what you’d consider a big fan, so have never made myself intelligently conversant on the show. But reading your avid and faithful posts have prompted a question to pop into my head, which my memory just can’t answer and it’s bugging me now. Would you be kind enough to oblige: Do the characters on TWD refer to the walking dead as “zombies?” This may seem a stupid question, but I honestly can’t bring an echo to my head of a line in the show, where the characters actually do so. All I can recall is the characters referring to them as “walkers.”
    Honest question, no disrespect intended. Thanks.

    @ linusdadelus,

    As you posted 3 weeks ago you’ll likely not come back to see this response, but the answer is No. In that world they never developed the idea of Zombies in any way shape or form, and so they didn’t think to name them until the dead began to rise in S1E1.
