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.

    @Disney Rocks Oh, you know what I meant. I didn’t literally mean nobody would watch P&F. & Calling my comment dumb or stupid, is pretty immature and hypocritical, because you’ve made dumb comments before. We don’t want to hear how disney has bla bla programs. This fighting over networks is stupid. I have my opinions, you have yours. If you can’t accept that then you shouldn’t be commenting at all. Thanks, and have a nice day. :)

    @ NICK…

    Any numbers for MLS Game on ESPN for Sunday Afternoon?

    And MLS Saturday’s game on NBCSPN at 11:00 PM?…

    Thank you..

  • peter

    What does “TENNIS:WIMBLEDON-RAIN L” mean? Is that just for the rain delay or is it for the whole second part of the final? Or is the second part included in the 8:56 AM ratings?

    I would also like to know the ratings of MLS, Tour de France and Redneck Island.

  • nick

    where is big ang??? her show was HILARIOUS!!!

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @peter: “TENNIS:WIMBLEDON-RAIN L” was just for 11:13-11:49A ET.

  • peter

    Ah ok. Thanks Robert.

    On another website, i saw that the Tour de France on NBC Sports got 1.0 overnight rating on Sunday and 0.9 on Saturday. How does this translate into viewers? 1 million viewers?

    @peter: HH ratings can’t be translated into viewers since it measures only homes, not the number of people watching. Also those numbers you saw must have been wrong or measuring something besides national household rating. No demo info but from 8-11p Sunday Tour de France on NBCS averaged 189,000 viewers and Saturday 138,000 viewers from 8-11p.

    @bg: MLS Sat 11p game on NBCS averaged 151,000 viewers. Chicago/LA Galaxy on ESPN averaged 496,000 viewers.

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    Any numbers for AM Raw?

  • Dennis

    Yup, EPISODES is a dead show airing

  • Heath

    Wow, Soccer rates higher than Oprah. Wonder how she’s feeling about that step into political endorsement these days.

  • Max

    Mob Wives: Chicago (VH1)
    -8 PM: 0.481 million viewers, 0.26 A18-49

    Big Ang (VH1)
    -9 PM: 0.670 million viewers, 0.36 A18-49

    Well, clearly, the Chicago version of the Mob Wives franchise is dead. I mean, the original pulls over a million viewers and at least a 0.6-0.8 demo, if not higher. So, I can’t see VH1 renewing this. The hope is that it hasn’t damaged the original to the point where no one cares when that comes back.

    Big Ang though, is an interesting case. The numbers are not amazing but it did build on the lead-in and for a quick 30-minute reality show, perhaps VH1 is not so overly disappointed. I could see a case where they give Ang a second season if the numbers keep up like this.

    But yeah, Chicago is a goner and the hope for the network now is that it hasn’t done damage to the original.

  • Matt

    why didnt you put RHONJ in the title? Its the 3rd highest rated show of the night

  • Vh1

    Big Ang and Mob Wives Chicago will go down next week. Big Ang will definitely drop

  • Max

    @VH1

    Don’t be so sure about a drop for Big Ang. People really seem to dig her and a lot of chatter online was about how much fun the show was and how quickly it went by. I could see her holding that audience.

  • The End

    Scary how well Walking Dead does in repeat form. These figures would make any cable network happy if one of their original shows was hitting these numbers.

    To think if a repeat can hit a 0.8 on cable, when Season 3 comes back it’l hitting record numbers.

  • peter

    @Thanks Robert & Nick.

    I saw the Tour de France numbers on “Sports Media Watch” and their source is “Sports Business Daily”. These 2 websites have always been accurate in my experience. Here’s the link:

  • tvguru

    big ang = big flop
    These numbers will drop the show has nothing to offer. A bunch of old gross women come on vh1.

  • xwiseguyx

    It’s sad people aren’t tuning in to see Episodes.. such a funny show.

  • The End

    @xwiseguyx

    More people watch Episodes in the UK ironically enough, and as this is a joint production between the BBC and Showtime I think it’l be around for a little longer.

    I think this show has gone beneath everyones radar personally.
