True Blood was Sunday's number one cable program, with a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, matching last week's performance. Real Housewives of New Jersey came in second, with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 1.3 last week.

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 of ratings that aren't in the table via commenter Nick are below the table and in the comments.

  • RHONJd

    Wow, Good Luck Charlie did GREAT!

  • Kie

    Yay for True Blood. And decent numbers for the Newsroom.

    Sucks that Falling Skies got a series low…even if personally the show does deserve it.

  • RHONJd

    I can’t believe that Let it Shine had so much time of promotion, about 1 1/2 months, and pulled 5.7 million viewers. Good Luck Chaelie had a quarter amount of time that Let it Shine had, and pulled those numbers. GREAT! Go Disney and go GLc

  • John A

    Newsroom did well in the demo.

  • disney rocks

    This proves Good Luck Charlie is Disney’s flagship show that people love. With more promotion and no more getting mistreated and always having the 8PM timeslot, this show can do great every episode. Give it more respect, Disney!

    Go Good Luck Charlie! Amazing, Funny Show!

  • cimmer

    Huh, so it wasn’t the basketball game that effected Falling Skies I guess? Well I think it’s probably still ok as long as it doesn’t drop much farther. The Spielberg name alone could get it a third season as long as it doesn’t hit 1.0 or lower at any point during it’s run.

  • Sepen

    I can’t believe people watch true blood it’s such a horrible show, WAY to many characters and WAY to many stories I don’t care about that black woman I don’t care about that dude and the “werewolves” I don’t care about sookies(SP?) brother and whatever he’s up to I don’t care about that fat cop I don’t care about that waitress and her dim witted boyfriend I don’t care about that gay black guy JUST MAKE THE SHOW ABOUT VAMPIRES VS HUMANS

  • Ryan Stoppable

    For “Good Luck Charlie,” that’s Disney Channel’s most watched show since “Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension” last August.

  • John A

    @Sepen you dont care about True Blood yet you know alot of its plot. I dont care or watch the show and know nothing about it.

  • scifi

    Failing Skies will be canceled…

  • Mickie

    Nick…Any ratings for Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday? Thank you

  • rob60990

    So much for a rise for Falling Skies. Sports had no effect on it, it hurt itself.

  • MELVIN

    I knew that good luck Charlie will do it, that was amazing I am so happy, weird that it did more than let it shine

  • Colin

    Thats ok for Falling Skies. 3rd season is a sure thing.

  • Jesse

    Failing Skies has fallen and can’t get up.

  • LoveLee

    Great for TB!

  • SF

    @Nick
    Thanks again! Does this mean Legend of Korra was the top-rated cable show for Saturday?

  • AppleStinx

    UEFA Euro 2012 England vs Italy did pretty well, esp. because it was an ugly game to watch (maybe it had to do with my watching it online…)

  • Michael

    everyone said that special GOOD LUCK CHARLIE will get beaten by the legend of korra but look and i know it that although it didn’t get a lot of commercials like nick’s show … it got more than double the number!!! wowww 7.5 GOOOOOOOOOO !!! GOOD LUCK CHARLIE!!! GOOOOOOOO!!! BEST DISNEY SHOW !!!:DDD
    by the way the special was TOTTALY AWESOME!! who agrees?! :D
