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.

    @Disneyrocks No comeback? Excuse me? This is a tv ratings website, I’m no gonna “fight” you over some rating, little boy. (:

    good luck charlie? what the hell?

  • GB

    Nadine, Nadine, Nadine, (whom I inadvertently called Nicole last we posted) Note to self Cabernet and posting don’t mix.

    How can you predict that when several of TNT’s shows haven’t premiered yet and the Closer spin off has yet to hit the air ? (also with an academy award nominated actress in the lead.) I’d say that both TNT and USA will be neck and neck all summer and it will be very close at the finish line for who has scripted bragging rights. And both are very healthy.

    Now go back to your cubicle at the USA network and find something more productive to do with your time…as I AM GOING TO DO RIGHT NOW after I hit Submit Comment.

  • disney rocks

    @ Polar Bear- Good luck Charlie is a great show, best show on Disney. No surprise it did that good.

  • Nickelodeon_Rocks 2012

    @Disney Rocks why aren’t YOU REPLYING TO MY COMMENT LITTLE BOY. Since you’re looking for A FIGHT, I’ll give you one.

  • ChrisA

    Don’t have TNT. Really want to watch Falling Skies season 2 but their video service sucks. You actually have to sign to your cable provider. Really TNT??? Can’t you be like ABC, FOX, ABC Family, and etc. Now I have to wait till the blu-ray release (next year). This sucks!

  • Dennis

    Whats with all the little kiddies on here today fighting over Disney and Nickelodeon??

  • peter

    Euro 2012 is slaying. England vs Italy was an amazing game. No goals but great action and thrilling finish.

    Redneck Island is considerably up vs last week and did better than its series premiere.

    Falling Skies is doing about the same as last year. People need to stop panicking. The show will be renewed without a doubt.

    Looks like a season high for the Real Housewives of NJ.

    Legend of Korra is an amazing show. I’m glad it’s doing great but i don’t understand why only 13 episodes per season.

  • Lorenzo

    Any ratings for the HBO documentary “Me At The Zoo”?

  • joss

    @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

    Jesus who cares what do you think eh? Yod dont like the show DONT WATCH IT!I dont care about Kardashians so what>?

  • Polar Bear

    @disney rocks and every other person on here
    since when did little kids care about tv ratings?

  • marc

    those are good ratings for an afternoon soccer game, right? (I’m just hoping for ESPN showing Euro 2016 as well).

  • wright

    Falling Skies is my favorite summer show. Shows always drop viewers after the first episode. I have no doubt it will get a 3rd season.

  • disney rocks

    Nikcelodeon Rocks 2012, Nick hasn’t had a single telecast all year rate even close to GLC; Disney is KING!

  • disney rocks

    Nickelodeon Rocks 2012- no you’re not dreaming; this is the real world buddy

  • Matto

    WOAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK CHARLIE WAS THEE MOST WATCHED SHOW OF THE NIGHT! IT GARNERED 2.8 MORE MILLION VIEWERS THAN THAT STUPID PROVOCATIVE TRUE BLOOD OVER ON HBO!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAAHA

  • peter

    @marc: These are great ratings for Euro 2012. Sunday’s game did as good as the 2008 final (and that was on ABC). As for the first round, none of the games reached 0.9 overnight in 2008. This time, a dozen of games were above 0.9 overnight.

    I think ESPN will do everything in their power to have the rights of Euro 2016 (if they don’t have them already). But it might get complicated because of Bein Sport (Al Jazeera’s new sport channel). They’ve already bought U.S. rights of La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1. And they have the money to go against ESPN and NBC Sports for everything related to soccer and even other major sports.

  • Jordan

    That’s why I said last week there are no excuses for shows. True Blood didn’t go up in demo from last week. Falling Skies went down. A&E shows were the same. I don’t care what sports or award shows are on. The ratings are the ratings. Maybe now Silvio will understand. And no more excuses for why your shows are down.

  • Chris

    MLS match on ESPN had an overnight of 0.6, where is it at? Curious how the MLS match on NBCSN did, as well?
