True Blood was Sunday's number one cable program with a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from last week's 2.7. Keeping Up With the Kardashians came in second, with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, down a tenth from last week's 1.5.

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 Political Animals.

  • Oliver

    Breaking Bad dropped from 1.5, but it’s still holding up: 1.2 vs its season 4 ratings record of 1.1.

    I think AMC’s decision to split the season will pay dividends.

  • Marcos

    Omg where’s Weeds?

  • Oliver

    Oh, and that’s without Dish, which has ~13% market share.

  • Jam

    Good numbers for Breaking Bad. It’s a rarity for so heavily serialized show to get bigger and bigger ratings each season.

  • CC

    .9 for Longmire is up right? Also Falling Skies holding steady! And leverage is a consistent .7 too??

  • AZTop

    I would think Food Network has to be fairly pleased with Food Network Star’s performance this season.

  • Baqinardo

    Cant help but notice Franklin and Bash at the bottom of the list.
    0.3 on 8.30 AM on Sunday?
    Wow. Haha. Old people watched it before going to the church [or watched it instead of going to church. Idk, i dont go to church.]
    Haha… I’d be still sleeping at that hrs.

  • Oliver

    The Newsroom flat week-on-week, which is pretty respectable.

  • EC

    Is Leverage .7 bad? Think it will be cancelled? What about the Great Escap, I think it is not great. Gone.

  • KIC

    Longmire quickly becoming my favorite show.

  • timotey

    The Glades is skewing so much younger than Longmire – a mil. less viewers but only .1 less in demo.

  • Dillan

    I’m glad Falling Skies is steady, but this season deserves better ratings than the first seasons ratings. Sunday’s episode was fantastic!

    Kardashians and True Blood still going strong.

  • RJ

    Food Network Star finished pretty well, as always.

    I think Leverage is doing fine. It’s the only TNT show to air at 8pm, so I don’t know what their expectations would be. It seems to be treated as the young step-child of the network, but who knows.

  • Red Jane

    @Baqinardo I don’t mean to bash them but I’d rather sleep than watch Franklin & Bash – the fratboy routine is soooo tiresome….

  • MELVIN

    Easily expected for Disney channel, nothing new was really shown on sunday

  • Kissan

    TCA’s and The Bachelorette season finale didn’t affect anything at all.

  • Survivor Fan

    Very good for Food Network Star

  • Bjm

    Hooray for True Blood!

  • Dennis

    Falling Skies was surprisingly brilliant last night!
    The critters eating their way out of Jamel was a bit of a shock :O

    I hope those pesky things return

  • Dennis

    ..also the photo above, I thought it was a screen grab from Sabrina the Teenage Witch ;)
