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.

UPDATE: Lots more ratings data below the table via commenter Nick

  • Sean

    Legend of Korra Numbers please for saturday!!!!!!!!

  • AlcoholicsAnonymous

    AWFUL numbers for The Killing.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Season 3 would be the last by AMC (unless they immediately cancel the show).

  • RJ

    The Killing sealed its fate last night. For a big reveal episode, it bombed. Sorry fans, lets be honest here.

  • Chris

    The Killing is just the poor man’s Twin Peaks–and not just in terms of the ratings. Honestly, why would you want a show like this to keep going? They’ve told the story. End it.

    @NICK

    Any EURO Numbers for Saturday?

    It would be great if we could see the numbers for both ESPN and ESPN2. In the last group round matches, we have two games simulcasting at the same time.

    As for Sunday, we got 1.3 million on ESPN, but what was the number for ESPN2 featuring Germany vs. Denmark starting at the same time?

    Thank you.

  • Sean

    Nick, by any chance do you have Figure it out Ratings @ 7:00PM on Friday????????

  • Kevin

    Thanks Nick..appreciate it very much

  • disney rocks

    thats decent for austin and ally

  • disney rocks

    Does anyone know why the penguins of madagascar is airing new episodes on sunday morning when kids are at church and not Saturdays?

  • Stefan

    Thanks Nick

  • SV

    @Nick
    Thanks so much, Nick!!! Do you have numbers just forthe premiere of Home for Dinner (FOOD,Sat 10:30 AM)? I’ll appreciate it!!!

  • vh1

    Mob Wives Chicago is a flop. VH1 Sunday lineup is a total flop

  • Andrea

    Nick, many thanks for the Saturday figures.

    Blue Lagoon ratings are probably decent without being brilliant or anything else.

    SyFy movie is also decent (its 18-49 demo has doubled last week’s Jersey Shore Shark Attack performance).
    The thing with SyFy Saturday Night Crap is that they seem pretty stable. On Lifetime you can get movie premiering with barely 1m viewers and movies getting 5+ million. On Syfy the great majority of their saturday movies seem to be in the 1.5/2.5m range.

    Hallmark movie is weak in total viewers (its 18-49 isn’t that low considering the overal viewership. I have seen Hallmark movie above 2m with 0.3 18-49 rating)

  • mikeS

    Did Sunday night baseball really not make the list? Red Sox v. Cubs, 2 of the biggest fan bases. Is baseball really falling that badly? That’s embarrassing

  • TheKillingRocks!

    Well…Didnt expect those numbers for the killing, there was a lot of tough competition at that slot, the premiere of falling skies, true blood, and of course the NBA…At least the finale was awesome and got a lot of buzz and media coverage, and reviews were great…maybe its just too little, too late..
    All I can say is Thanks for the ride and hope it continues!

  • FattyMcFatso

    I enjoyed the finale of The Killing but I don’t see it coming back. With the lower ratings and the fact that they did sorta close it out, it would almost be sad for it to return only to end up cancelled halfway through another investigation.

  • salim

    please someone tell me wat this break thing is on hbo is it a show or wat??
