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.
