True Blood was again the number one cable program on Sunday night, earning a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 2.9 premiere rating. Falling Skies earned a 1.5 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 Sister Wives.

    “Break came in second place with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.” – someone here is not watching a lot of tv.

  • Max

    …And Mob Wives Chicago didn’t even make list.

    So, all those people stating that it didn’t make the list a few weeks ago because it was “a special preview” and didn’t last week because “it was a repeat” will now use what excuse this week?

    Just admit it, VH1 made a bad decision thinking they could make a franchise out of this when ONLY the original brings in decent numbers.

  • John A

    LMAO at The Killing. Wasnt it going to beat Mad Men finale? LOL

  • Ali

    Nice to see The Client List ending up on a high! Did that match the premiere or was it down? I cant remember what rating it got in the demo for its premiere.

  • Fashioness

    Darn, that is awful finale numbers for The Killing. There is just no way to spin those horrible numbers. Guess I was right last week when I said maybe Mad Men did affected the Killings ratings in some way. I mean this was the finale, it should have gone up.. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

  • Rich

    When can we expect the renewal announcement for “Break”?

    I thought the Killing would see be higher. Can’t imagine it will come back.

  • Silvio

    True Blood down 3 tenths week-to-week
    Glades down 2 tenths
    Longmire 2 tenths too
    Falling Skies down 25% season to season

    Only Client List finale is up, 2 tenths w2w (now I know its female skewing)
    Killing and Girls season finales flat – which is actually disappointing.

    Where is that character (jordan ? ) claiming yesterday overlap with sport events not existing

  • Nickelodeon Rules

    This is off topic but has anyone heard off Team Four Star’s DragonBall Z Abridged on Youtube

  • peter

    I hope The Killing comes back next season. Season 2 was great. Much better than season 1 in my opinion.

    Great to see Euro 2012 making another apparence in this table. Remember that none of the 1st Round games in 2008 scored above 0.9 overnight. This time around, 7 or 8 games have already achieved better than that and there are still Monday and Tuesday games in the 1st Round.

    Falling Skies, Real Housewives of NJ and True Blood are all doing great. Expect them to all comeback next year.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Go TRUE BLOOD. Love the addition of Meloni and can’t wait to see this stud practically naked — and you just know it’s coming!

  • Rocco

    Peter, how on earth could they ever rehabilitate the Killing, after all the damage and bad will caused by Veena? It’s over, dude. Sometimes, good TV characters go to the TV grave early. It happens.

  • joss

  • Bonita Applebum

    So I guess the Kardashians interview with Oprah didn’t bring in HUGE numbers as expected!

  • Kurt K

    What about Fast Food Mania?

  • Kevin

    Ok I will be the first to ask…anyone have a rating for Redneck Island on CMT from Saturday night.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Andrea

    The 2 Lifetime movies listed are both Blue Lagoon: The Awakening re-runs
    It premiered on Saturday night

  • Kevin

    Looks like Spongebob may have given NICK the win in total viewers for last week…because i see a whole lot of NICKELODEON….But, WHERE’S DISNEY?

  • Straub

    Nooooo! The Killing got smoked! Damn you LeBron James do you have to destroy everything I love!

  • vh1

    Mob Wives Chicago numbers?

  • Brody

    I’m worried about The Big C.
