True Blood was Sunday’s top cable program with a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, up a tenth from last week. The Breaking Bad premiere came in second with a 1.5 rating, up 34% from last year’s premiere.

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.
