The NBA Playoffs Conference Finals were the number one cable program on Sunday night, earning a 4.9 adults 18-49 rating. The Game of Thrones finale was in second place with a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.

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.

UPDATE: Additional ratings info via commenter Nick is below the table

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 Veep.

  • D’Arcy

    I know demos really mean nothing for HBO, but a 2.2 for Game of Thrones is great!

  • TJ

    Are all those HBO breaks Newsroom promos?

  • Colin

    Longmire screws old. Its already in danger. Breakout Kings was axed with a solide 0.7. and Longmire gets a 0.8. in the pilot. Estimating the usual declines in weeks 2-4, it should be dead.

  • Max

    Teen Wolf really didn’t perform well. A 0.8 and 2109 million viewers looks nice enough for now but imagine the drop for last night’s episode and subsequent Monday’s. It will more than likely hover in the 0.5-0.6 range with 1500-1700 or so million viewers.

    Those numbers CANNOT be what MTV is looking for.

  • John A

    The Big C has to be safe.

  • scifi

    Game of Thrones doesn’t deserve such ratings. It was popular in the first season, however now… hey, nobody remember this show already!

  • Torrid

    SUNDAY: NBA PLAYOFFS-CONF FNLS L ESPN 8:34 PM 11.068 4.9 – CABLE

    SATURDAY: NHL Stanley Cup Final NBC 8:00 PM 2.54 0.9 – BROADCAST!
    ——————————————————————————-

    You gotta admit – its getting ridiculously embarrisng now :)

  • TheKillingRocks!

    Nice rebound for the Killing! Both rating and quality-wise! is it too late for renewal?? I think 1.6M is a good number and I guess 2M is possible for the two part finale beginning next week!

  • John A

    GOT isnt for me but impresive ratings for it. Veep and Girls do poorly with a good lead in.

  • xwiseguyx

    Nice rise for Flipped Off! Yeah!!

  • disney rocks

    This proves Shake it up doesn’t need a lead in and should go to Fridays at 8

  • disney rocks

    Why didn’t good luck charlie-name tHAT baby air last night? Did disney pull it?

  • TimsDale4ever

    I wish NURSE JACKIE and THE BIG C would double their ratings — those are really 2 very well put together shows that deserve more viewers. I just don’t think they are that safe at their current viewer levels.

  • Amy

    I agree that GOT has gotten a bit boring. They are missing out on a lot of the nice scenes from the book and it’s not interesting enough for me. Nice bump up in the ratings though, crossing the 4 million mark. Is that a first for GOT?

    Nice to see the Killing ratings go up a bit though it was a bit boring this week with nothing much happening.

  • Joel

    Teen Wolf did good but i thought it would do better, i wonder if Russell Brand’s consent reminder that “Teen Mom” was airing after the awards show had anything to do with it?

  • Joel

    also longmire skewing REALLY OLD soo soon but yet the highest drama in viewer for A&E, i wonder how they feel about that…

  • John A

    @TimsDale4ever Nurse Jackie been renewed for a 5th season and the big C should be safe too.

  • GB

    Game of Thrones has gotten boring? Are you kidding me?!?!? Did you see the last two episodes? The show is unbelievable. Love it, love it, love it. Can’t wait for season 3. Best show on TV.
