The BET Awards was Sunday's number one cable program, with a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating. True Blood came in second, with a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, even with 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 Falling Skies.

UPDATED: Tons more weekend ratings data below the table. Thanks to commenter Nick!

    GLC Got 4mil on the dot! I hope victorious gets the same viewer #’s PLEASE.

  • RHONJd

    Great numbers for Good Luck Charlie, especially going against BET Awards. Last year, Good Luck Charlie got 3.1 million viewers against BET Awards. And also great for Shake it Up!

  • Dillan

    I’m hoping Falling Skies won’t fall anymore. I think it needs to be pushed back to 10pm like last season.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    YAY! That’s SO GOOD FOR HTR & Victorious! It was SO CLOSE TO 4 MILLION, AND could have beat GLC! Thanks Nick, as always! :D

  • Nicole

    Way to go GOOD LUCK CHARLIE 4 MIllion

  • RHONJd

    Good Luck Charlie beats Victorious! By about 200k viewers! Shake it Up almost beat Victorious too! HTR’s numbers are still bad…

  • OWN Fan

    @Nick, Do you know what a new ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ did at 8/7 central + a new Super Soul Sunday on OWN?

    Thanks.

  • Dave

    Newsroom dropped a good deal from the premiere.

  • John

    Would a 0.5 be bad for The Glades, I see it’s been getting a 0.6/0.7 the past few weeks. I’m not sure what’s good ratings for A&E. But I guess it’s somewhat okay if it did a little better than Longmire.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Rhon HTR’S #’s Aren’t that BAD. It’s funny because when ANT farm gets those numbers none of you say it’s bad, most of you disney preps say that’s pretty decent. In HTR’S terms, that’s amazing and can’t wait for the special episode with Cee Lo Green :D. Victorious ahhh amazing!

  • Mickie

    Nick…any numbers for Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday at 11am PT? Thank you.

  • John

    And ouch at the Weeds premiere.

  • Disney Rocks

    I don’t care but I link bit feel sorry for how to rock, a whole million people didn’t watch how to rock, I’m surprised for victorious because I watched it online and I didn’t like it,and it got 3.8 mill, however the episode with jennette McCurdy got 2.5 million and that was my favourite episode, but good for shake it up, and good luck Charlie, still the best for me.

  • RHONJd

    @Nathan (NR2012) I never said ANT Farm’s numbers were decent when it got 2.8 million or less, but HTR has a huge lead in, and can’t even pull 3 mil. A.N.T. farm had less of a lead in, and grew and almost got 3.5 mil! And it’s summer, all shows should be doing better.

  • Mickie

    Nick…Oprah’s Next Chapter that featured the NBA champs aired at 10pm ET/PT. Any numbers are always appreciated!

  • bg

    @NICK…

    Any numbers for MLS broadcast on Saturday evening on ESPN2?

    Thank you.

  • RHONJd

    @Nick,

    Do you have any ratings for Let it Shine (Disney Channel) on Saturday starting @ 7:30 pm? It was a special encore called “Rap Battle Edition”. And after Let it Shine was a new Gravity Falls that started at 9:25 pm.

    All of this aired on Disney Channel, starting at 7:30 pm, on Saturday.

    Thanks :)

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Rhon I didn’t say you said that, I said “Disney Preps”. That part of the comment wasn’t specifically directed towards you. Anyway, I do agree with the lead in part. If nickelodeon had aired HTR right after the KCA’S, maybe it would be pulling in atleast 3 million.

  • tvguy101

    Why are the L + SD ratings for Falling Skies different here than on TNT’s website (http://tntnewsroom.com/tnt-originals-turn-in-strong-performances-in-weekly-ratings/). It says there that the show got 4.1 million in L +SD, with a 1.4. That’s quite different from the 3.3 mil/1.2 above.
