True Blood was Sunday's number one cable program with a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating, matching last week's performance. Keeping Up with the Kardashians was the number two show, with a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, up from last week's 1.4.

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.

Update: additions via commenter Nick are below the table, including some Saturday night highlights.

  • disney rocks

    Thats okay for SIU, it grew from GLC. I guess they didn’t do that bad, I mean they both had 3 million, at least they weren’t in the 2’s.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Disney rocks We don’t care about the “original movies” for the year. Also, Fred 3 was against the olympics.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Nick Thanks for the ratings! Much appreciated.. :)

  • AppleStinx

    What would be the reason for NBCSN and MSNBC to have had the same ratings at 12:00pm showing the same program (S OLY PM)?

  • tobias

    Lol Fred 3 did better vs the Olympics then GLC and SIU LMFAO !!!

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @Apple: coincidence as far as the same numbers. Non specific telecast/event labeling as far as the same “program.”

    edit: also, we don’t post program “end times” but the MSNBC telecast ran from Noon-5p while the NBCSN telecast ran from noon to 7:06p

  • melvin

    remember fred 3 is a movie, so it would get some views

  • AppleStinx

    @Robert Seidman

    Thanks for the explanation. I was imagining the possibility of some “ratings pooling”. My mind goes weird sometimes. :grin:

  • RHONJd

    Of Course Good Luck Charlie & Shake it Up were gonna be down. Olympics clearly hurt them. Thankfully, the Olympics won’t hurt Shake it Up: made in Japan.

  • Kaylie

    @tobias… Why are you laughing so hard? The show could barely crack 2 million viewers not against the Olympics.

    GLC and Shake it Up were hurt against the Olympics of course. Hopefully, SIU Made in Japan will do better.

  • Disney Fan

    I really don’t like shake it up. I’m pretty mad how it got more views than GLC..
    My guess for shake it up- made in Japan is.. 3.5-4.2 million..

    Was there really a new penguins Sunday.? Cuz I did not know anything about it.
    Spongebob is once again dominating the list..(: Go spongebob.!
    Fred 3 was better than the last 2 movies, but I knew it would get less than 4 million because of the Olympics and because his popularity has decrease. I really want to see Lucas(Fred) new show Marvin Marvin on nick, not Fred: the show.!
    Anyways Fred 3 did well..(:
    I’m pretty disappointed about You Gotta See This. I thought it would get like last time 2.7. It still did good but It deserves better ratings cuz it a funny show. Way better than Code 9 for sure.!!

  • Disney Fan

    @Kaylie
    He wasn’t talking about the show.!! He was talking about the movie. O and Fred the show has reached over 3 million before..

  • tobias

    @Disney Fan
    thanks for pointing that out but i really thought glc and siu would do better than fred . 3.5 million isnt bad at all considering his popularity has dropped a ton and it was up against the oylmpics

  • disney rocks

    I hate Fred, but I do admit that I like other Nick shows; Also, GLC and SIU were also up against the olympics.
