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!

  • Nick

    Ouch at The Newsroom. That’s down 44%! At least that’s still better than Veep and Girls :)

  • Lane

    What was the audience demographic for the BET awards? lol

  • SJ

    Showtime is still losing its highest rated comedy in Weeds. I wonder if they’re waiting to see if Laura Linney gets an Emmy nomination before deciding on The Big C’s fate.

    The Newsroom dropped like a rock. Didn’t it have like 2.2 million viewers last week?

  • disney rocks

    Top 5 originals Nick/Disney-

    1. GLC- 4.0 million
    2. Victorious- 3.8 million
    3. Shake It Up- 3.7 million
    4. A.N.T Farm- 3.4 million
    5. My Babysitter’s a Vampire- 3.2 million

    Disney- 4 entries
    Nick- 1 entry

    And, although GLC edged Victorious by only 200K, it still beat it! Knew GLC would get 4 million, even if barely! Good numbers for Disney! Good for Victorious too! HTR still bad!

    Also, don;t try to say this isn’t a fair comparison and that Disney had more originals, take a look at this-

    Nick- 8 originals for the week
    Disney- 5 originals for the week

    Nick had an advantage and still lost!

    Next week-

    Nick- 6 originals
    Disney- 3 originals

    My prediction for the top 5 next week

    1. A.N.T Farm
    2. MBAV
    3. Gravity Falls
    4. Figure It Out
    5. Figure It Out

    Disney will BEAT Nick with a disadvantage!

    Disney RULES!

  • Oliver

    1.8 is very respectable for the Euros, especially since it was a blowout.

  • Anthony Brown

    OMG! How old are you Nick + Disney fans. Please stop. LOL!

  • disney rocks

    Disney WINS! Disney BEAT Nick! Go Disney!

  • disney rocks

    Go Victorious! Only good show on Nick!

  • Sean

    GO NICKELODEON!!!!!!!! Fairly OddParents & Victorious is THE BEST!!!!! Also, BTR & Spongebob.

    @tvguy101 I’m not sure where TNT got the 4.1 million viewers, I think they just made a mistake or they added in viewers for the encore (or they used a “total viewer” metric rather than an average). 1.4 million adults 18-49 isn’t the same thing as as a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.

    I’m not sure where TNT got that 1.4M # either since it had 1.473 million adults 18-49 (which would round up to 1.5 million), but ratings aren’t millions of viewers, but the percentage of the population being measured. There are 127.9 million adults 18-49 according to Nielsen so a “1.0″ adults 18-49 rating = 1.279 million adults 18-49.

  • John A

    Surprised there arent any ”Falling Skies will be cancelled” comments.

  • bg

    @Euro2012…

    It is important to note that ESPN is going to see a solid number from ESPNDeportes. I’m expecting about 1 million Spanish viewers for that platform. The combined audience will be around 5 million or more (ESPN+ESPNDeportes)…Not counting the digital platforms…

    EURO2016 looks good for ESPN.

  • Bryan

    @Nick:

    On Saturday, can you post how “Lab Rats,” (7pm) “Let It Shine” (7:30pm) and a new episode of “Gravity Falls” (9:25pm) did on Disney Channel?

    Thanks! :)

  • AppleStinx

    Good numbers for the Spain vs Italy final, top cable daytime program. As for Food Network Star, I’m waiting for the contestant with a nose ring to be dumped (or removes the ring) before I watch the program. In terms of star-quality contestants, the show has become worse with each passing season.

  • disney rocks

    I’d like to know how a new Gravity Falls did Saturday June 30 at 9:25 on Disney

  • Dennis

    Episodes is a dead show airing….
    Season 2 is doing pretty badly on BBC2 aswell so there’s no doubt it will get canned

    According to TNT’s press release Falling Skies got 4.1 mill ??

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Disney rocks Calm down kid, it’s just a network. How old are you 12? We don’t have to get too excited over this, and LOL @Anthony.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Dennis: as noted earlier I’m pretty sure TNT’s number in the press release is wrong or measuring something besides the average for the 9p telecast. I’m checking with them.

  • RJ

    The amount of people talking about the ratings for Disney/Nick is too much for me to handle. The two always go back and forth, we get it.

  • tnt

    TNT added the encore episode for Falling Skies to get 4.1 million
