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.

    Curious to see how Ice Road Truckers will fare in the ratings with the loss of the ladies, or more specifically Lisa Kelly. Seems she helped bring in women viewers.

  • Mikey M

    Hopefully The Killing will go away soon.

    Every website I go to, people are deleting IRT from their DVRs because of the loss of Lisa Kelly and, to a lesser extent, Maya Sieber. I’m going to hang on for a few more eps, I did watch the first two seasons which didn’t have any women, but it was a more interesting series to get the perspective of female drivers.
