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.

    Love The Killing. Strong results with the season finale coming, and with only 2 known pilots in the pipeline, plus the ridiculous showing of The Pitch, AMC would be crazy not to pick a 3rd season. Not to mention potentailly loosing eyeballs due to the DISH fiasco, might be better off with known properties versus newbies.

  • Kevin

    Do you have any ratings for Saturday’s cable shows, am interested in how the Steve Austin show Redneck Island did on CMT???

    or if not where I could find them??

  • TheKillingRocks!

    @Ven…love it too!
    But there’s something that strikes me…Veena Sud commented in a lot of interviews that during season 2 the new crime will be presented, and so far (and with 42 min remaining I doubt…) there’s no indication of a new killing..I reaally want season 3 with a new crime…

  • disney rocks

    TPOM sunday 10AM on Nick, Nick do you have numbers?

  • disney rocks

    oh… its in table….. sorry. Is should be on Saturday anyway. Kids are at church at that time.

  • FiddleStickxFiddler

    With The Killing being on AMC it’s almost impossible to say what the might do after this season. On one hand it does OK for cable and OK against the competition it’s had this season. But with The Walking Dead being such a monster they may think they need to drop lower performers and aim higher. Then again, Mad Men, which isn’t all that impressive in the ratings, continues to get major promo and love from the channel. I’m expecting cancellation, but won’t be too surprised if we see an additional season next year.

  • Survivor Fan

    @ Nick
    Do you have any numbers for Redneck Island on CMT on Saturday?

  • Survivor Fan

    That rating for Flipped Off is decent. Why do they bury it at 11 PM on Saturdays? Would it have killed them to leave it in primetime at least?

  • Harpo

    #wow OWN is growing

  • disney rocks

    YIKES! Thought Victorious would get 3 million. Nick really needs to better promotion. All 3 new episodes on Saturday on Nick were beat by a new Shake it up and a repeat of Shake It Up. That’s bad cause victorious is a way better show. And saturdays episode was good.

  • greenf

    Soccer (Spain vs Italy game) beat MLB and a lot of NHL play-offs games.

    I hope The Killing comes back next season. Its 2 main actors are going to gain a lot of attention by then knowing that Joel Kinnaman will play Robocop and Mireille Enos will play the female lead in World War Z with Brad Pitt.

  • AlcoholicsAnonymous

    The MORON comment of the day goes to @scfyi on page one of the comments.

  • awdanskiii

    RHONJ beat Kardashins. GOOD! Kim is loosing steam, qucik she better do something shocking

  • RHONJd

    Every new show on Disney Channel Friday and Sunday beat Nick’s iCarly, Victorious, Bucket & Skinner! And not sure if Spingebob was new, but Phineas and Ferb beat both the 10 and 10:30 episodes!!! Go Disney!

  • RHONJd

    Real housewives of New Jersey is doing well, but definitely lower than usual. Most people are sick of watching the housewives gang up on Teresa. I’m sure next week’s big “fight” episode between Caroline and Jacqueline vs Teresa will bring the numbers and demo up!

  • DGH

    Don’t watch Mad Men but have to laugh at the their ratings or lack there of. After basically holding AMC hostage for more money they bring in these type of ratings. From people online it seems like the season quality matched the ratings. But hey the award shows love them so I guess that counts for something.

  • DGH

    @AA

    So you think AMC is dancing in the halls over the ratings of Mad Men or regretting giving them all that money because they won a few golden statues? Then again you could just be a fanboy who knows…

  • Paul

    I am pleased to see Girls failing miserably. It’s one of the most repugnant and overrated pieces of garbage I’ve ever had the misfortune of watching.

  • TobiasFünke

    The Killing’s finale is coming soon. I hope to see a 3rd season too, the two main characters are great, specially Holder

  • John A

    Why so much hate on Mad Men? Mad men is doing bad but The Killing does good? Mad men did 80% better than the killing Lol. The Killing fans are delusional.
