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.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    That last comment was for @RHONjd

  • Kaylie

    This is for all those Nickelodeon fans who said Legend of Korra would beat Good Luck Charlie! Doesnt matter, we still love u guys. <3

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @DisneyRocks
    Umm duhh it was series premier.!! They should of promote it like they did for the series premier.! And yes I do think it would of beat GLC, cuz avatar the last air bender scored big ratings.!! It doesn’t matter anymore though.! GLC beat LOK o well.! However at nick.com the LOK videos/ep have over 1million of views and the show is the most popular show on iTunes for children and adults.!!

  • Anthony

    @I luv nickelodeon Yes, but Avatar has never scored over 6 million viewers before

  • I luv nickelodeon

    They both scored big with there A18-49 rating

  • Kaylie

    Disney did not promote Good Luck Charlie all over online. They only do that with movies. I just hope those numbers carry into next weeks episode.

    @i Luv Nickelodeon. Ending GLC will not drop the network because there have been many great shows that ended in the past and the network still hasnt dropped yet. They just know how to promote. Plus, they have Shake it Up that has growing popularity and does really well in ratings.

  • bg

    @ Nick…

    Any final numbers for the MLS game of the week on ESPN on Sunday (following the Euro match)? I know it got a 0.6 in the overnight ratings…Thanks

  • I luv nickelodeon

    I can’t wait for this Saturday.!! New Victorious (the blonde squad) and New How To Rock (How to rock a love song).
    On the new victorious: Tori, cat, jade are going to have blonde hair lol
    On the new H2Rock: There is going to be a new song.!!!!!!!

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Anthony
    Yes it did.! If u looked it up on Wikipedia to check it then their info is wrong..It reached over 7million for one of their eps

  • AlcoholicsAnonymous

    I predict four seasons for Falling Skies & a TV movie to wrap up the show. That’s it.

  • Jaylynn

    Good for TB. I loved Sunday’s episode.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Kaylie
    Yeah cuz Disney had good shows back then.! The only good show left now is GLC, cuz from what I seen its way better than shake it up, ant farm, Austin&Ally, and wat other show Disney has.. Everything was better in the past.! And u wishing GLC to have the same numbers for next week is not going to happen, maybe like 4 million

  • GB

    Scifi? Really? Fallen Skies cancelled? What planet are you from? And why do you go to a website called tvbythenumbers if you have no understanding of the numbers? Fallen Skies is the number one 18-49 scripted drama on basic cable. It’s one of TNT’s youngest shows and is a cash cow internationally. Yeah it’s being cancelled and The Patriots are going 4-12 next season. And Lebron is being traded back to Cleveland for the 4th pick in the draft just because it’s the right thing to do and will make the people of Ohio feel better. What should be cancelled is your Lifetime Star Trek Convention media pass.

  • Babygate

    I don’t watch Disney because, well, I’m an adult, but I’m glad that Good Luck Charlie got the most viewers. Awesome for them. Falling Skies will probably get another season but personally, I can’t stand Noah Wiley and thus I don’t watch the show. I wish TNT would put something else in its place. Now, I am concerned about Drop Dead Diva. Those ratings are abysmal. This is such a phenomenal show, its a shame it never found a niche. Makes me think that people are unwilling to watch a female lead that is not rail thin. Unfortunately, I think this will be its last season. :-(

  • Walt

    FS will settle around there

  • Babygate

    @GB
    Falling Skies is not the #1 demo program in cable. Even reruns of Big Bang Theory match it in the demo and exceed it in viewers. Dallas does better with the demo and the viewers and let’s not forget that FS gets the cushy slot of Sundays at 9 which is prime real estate for tv viewing. But seriously, when the demo is 1.3 that’s not much. When it comes to viewers, many programs perform much better than FS. That being said, I do agree that it will most likely get a 4th season.

  • Avery16

    @GB “Fallen Skies is the number one 18-49 scripted drama on basic cable.”

    I hope you just mean on Sunday nights, because DALLAS on TNT has a higher viewership with the same 1.3 rating. BURN NOTICE get a slightly lower rating at 1.2, but has a higher viewership. It’s not the #1 scripted drama on basic cable. It’s up there, but not #1. Before you chastize someone else for not knowing the numbers, you might want to check them out as well.

  • Nadine

    Falling Skies is still ok, but TBS/TNT doesn’t seem to get it. They keep developing shows that resemble network shows. I suppose that’s not unreasonable, but it’s got to cost a lot. The alternative options offered by other networks–both scripted and not–seem a lot more creative and they’re reliably digging out the audiences.

  • Nadine

    I would also add that as the summer heats up, some of those USA numbers are probably going to exceed FS too: Burn Notice, White Collar, Suits, the new Sigourney Weaver mini-series, Royal Pains, etc. The established shows on USA are all pulling numbers close to FS’s demo and some exceed their total viewership and they have quite a few of them. On the face of it, USA on the whole seems healthier in scripted programming.

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    7.4 MILLION FOR A GLC EPISODE?? Am I dreaming! I must be! I LOVE how you disney fans WERE WAITING FOR ME TO COMMENT, LOL. THIS IS NOT OVER DISNEY PREPS, One day NICKELODEON WILL BE BACK ON TOP! Props to Disney, I guess.-_-
