True Blood was the number one cable program on Sunday night, earning a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating, down from a 3.0 for last year's season premiere on June 26, 2011. NASCAR Sprint Cup came in second place with a 1.4 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.

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 Girls.

Update: Lots of additional data (including some Saturday shows) from commenter Nick is below the table as well as in the comments.

    Hooray for True Blood and Mad Men.

    Sorry Killing. That won’t cut it.

  • Max

    Wow, VH1. You were so smart thinking you had a franchise going with the Mob Wives. This little Chicago experiment didn’t even make the dang list!

  • Joel

    how has hbo not giving orders for season 6 and 7? do they wait coz they dont want to spoil if a charater dies later in the season?

  • TheKillingRocks!

    @Rocco…
    Won’t cut it? 1.8M is a good number, and likely to get 2M by season finale next week…It’s a cheap show to produce, way much cheaper than Mad Men, and with all the hype its finale didn’t reach 3M!
    Wait and see my friend!

  • Fashioness

    I expected The Killing to rise after last week excellent episode. But it’s still not bad however.. It stayed the same, pretty much on par with last week.. Now the real test will be the finale. This will make or break I think if it will get athird season or not. How well will it do without Mad Men.

  • Jared

    Mob Wives Chicago was a repeat of the pilot..but new to its Sunday 8pm timeslot. Vh1 premiered the first episode about 2 weeks ago.

  • scfyi

    Mad Men, 0.9 demo. Why is this show not cancelled?

    Harry’s Law had better demos.

    A few shiny gold statues don’t pay the bills.

  • TheKillingRocks!

    It did rise…200k viewers….Cable dont mind Demos!
    And regarding Mad Men, I dont see a relation…MM goes at 10PM , Killing at 9PM…I dont think viewers of Mad Men tune in earlier just because!
    Agree that next week is make or break! I think if it gets 2M it will be fine!!

  • Max

    @Fashioness

    Mad Men has no bearing on The Killing. The Killing airs first, so it wouldn’t matter at all for next week.

    I don’t even see the point honestly of AMC renewing the show. If the finale ties everything up this week, let the show go out with at the very least, the respect that they finally gave the fans an answer. Work on producing new dramas now. It just seems pointless to continue the series now.

    What About Victorious on saturday, and did good luck charlie or shake it up premiere on sunday.

  • DW

    as a fan of the killing , if it comes back fine , if not ok i had two great seasons. mad men makes money for AMC / lionsgate . golf does bad ratings wise but a higher income watches it so they advertise to a specific core. harry’s law was watched by people set in their ways.

  • Stefan

    @ Nick

    Any numbers for AM Raw?

  • RyanCanada

    True Blood was great, GIRLs is amazing, Veep is something terrible, its only that high due to its lead in, DDD is a great show aswell

  • rob60990

    “Mad Men, 0.9 demo. Why is this show not cancelled?

    Harry’s Law had better demos.”

    lol at comparing a broadcast show ratings with a cable one. Didn’t Harry’s Law’s series finale get a .6?

  • John A

    Not great for The Big C. I was confident about a renewel but im not so sure anymore.

  • LoveLee

    Yes…TB!

  • Gussi

    The Spain soccer game does better than the Stanley Cup…

  • Fashioness

    @Max @TheKillingRocks! .. I think Mad men may have had a little effect on the Killing.. in fact I think if the Killing aired alone without Mad Men, it would have gotten even less. I lot of people were turned off because Rosie killers was never revealed last season. I think some people who are fans of Mad Men may turned ahead of time.. i’m not saying a lot but maybe a few..

    And i think it does matter if it gets a new season. it will be a new case.. I think with the continuation of the old case really hurted it chances at gaining new fans because they would have to find a way to watched last season.. I think a new season with possible new viewers will be worth AMC giving it a another chance..

  • Sean

    Go Nickelodeon!!!!!!!!!!! cant wait to see how the AWESOME Figure it out did last night.
