True Blood was Sunday's top cable program with a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, matching last week's performance. Keeping Up With the Kardashians came in second with a 1.4, 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 Talking Dead.

Update: additional telecasts not in the table via commenter Nick are below the table.

    @Dillan: the magic of rounded ratings, but FS was up a tiny bit with adults 18-49 as well with 1.540 million adults 18-49 on Sunday vs. 1.473 million adults 18-49 a week ago.

  • disney rocks

    @Mike, four of the five entries are spongebob, they rely on it too much to get ratings, and don’t tell me about Fairly Odd Parents having an entry, cause its one of only a couple other good rated nick shows, Disney has a much better well-rounded roster of good-rated original programs

  • Richie

    Dont know what vh1 is thinking big ang is creepy and old, and so are the mobwives.

  • Nadine

    Go, Newsroom!

  • Dennis

    @Dillian

    Woops sorry, I thought it got a 1.1 last week

  • Dillan

    @Robert:

    I see, thanks! I hope TNT announce the renwal soon! :D

  • Vh1

    Any number on Mob Wives Chicago and Big Ang

  • Dex

    Series high in viewers for The Newsroom and that’s HBO cares about!! :)))

  • Andy

    So happy for the newsroom!

  • SAC

    Good for FS. Is it true though that TNT looks at and uses 25-54 year ols more then the 18-49? Does anyone know why and what is TNT’s number 1 show in the 25-54 year old range if that is TNT’s most important demo?
    Thanks in advance.

  • RHONJd

    @disney rocks

    Last year, Wizards of Waverly Place was on Sunday @ 7:30, a new day and time, and managed to get 3.5 million viewers. It did have more promotion, though. Hopefully Good Luck Charlie does good. Fingers crossed.

  • TimsDale4ever

    TRUE BLOOD kicks ass with that 2.6 — for cable no less!

  • TimsDale4ever

    lmao. TALKING Dead????

  • Davis

    @Dillan… Your renewal will come, it’s the top-tier at TNT; a renewal won’t be a surprise

    But, the ratings held 1.2, thats good; actually thought that they would slowly inch closer to a 1.0

    But they didn’t rise either… O’oooh yeah, of course; it was Wimbeldon!

    Murray and Federer must have stolen their viewers! …If you believe the ‘Falling Skies’-Apologists in the Forum :)

  • Davis

    @Dillan… it was only marginal increase in viewers, but an increase none the less… but “A win is a win” ;)

  • Dennis

    Newsroom better than premiere!!! More viewers!

  • TheSearchForSock

    Failing SKIS is going downhill in a BAD way. In fact, the graph of this show’s quality, over time, does rather resembles a ski slope. Dynasty’s UFO fiasco back in the 1980′s was a more respectable attempt at combining soap opera with science fiction. TNT would be better off just canceling this mess and setting Dallas in space if that’s the direction they want to go in.

    “Barney & Friends” and this show are the same thing. They’re both produced by a guy who’s obsessed with dinosaurs and they’re both children’s shows because most of the actors are children. And they’re both trash. I’m sorry, but, since there are no proper Sci-fi shows left on TV anymore, all I have LEFT is bitterness and anger. I won’t rest untill this show is off the air!

  • PostSockErgoPropterSock

    Thank you, TheSearchForSock! That was well said!

  • Yoda

    Beware, TheSearchForSock. Fear, anger, jealousy. A path to the dark side are they!

  • Bud the Couch Spud

    Kardashians are here to stay baby! Rock solid rating, haters!
