True Blood was Sunday's top cable program with a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 2.6 last week. Keeping Up With the Kardashians came in second with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 1.6.

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.

  • Bert

    What were combat pawn numbers?

  • Melvin

    Wow 16 wishes did well and so did sponge bob and phineas

  • Max

    Political Animals has no shot at being anything more than a limited series event.

    *Any VH1 numbers (Mob Wives Chicago, Big Ang?

  • disney rocks

    I’m confident Shake It Up had 2.8-3.5 million, since it’s lead out had 3.2 million

  • mark

    Hi what were combat pawn numbers thank you. It aired at 10 30 pm trutv

  • disney rocks

    Go Phineas and Ferb! Decent rerun numbers! I have to admit, that Spongbob does perform very well in reruns, though.

  • Dennis

    wow Falling Skies back up to a 1.3….

    It’s a bit of a beast for TNT :)

  • disney rocks

    I an not trying to be rude, but without Spongebob, Nick and Disney would not be in a close race for total day viewers.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    I hope the Robots and Monsters premiere did well. Most likely not since Nickelodeon only promoted the damn show for a week.

  • Bryan

    Nick – can you post Saturday’s premiere ratings for “Robot and Monster” (11am on Nickelodeon)? Thanks!

  • marvinl

    Any numbers for combat pawn trutv 10 30?

  • Kathy

    They should have packaged Political Animals as a mini-series and scheduled it after Labor Day or beginning on Labor Day. That is when their core audience begins to pay attention to politics. If they wanted to get those who enjoy politics to watch they should have marketed it like Dallas. What a waste of a wonderful cast (except Ciarian Hinds, not a good fit).

  • Dennis

    Does anyone have WEEDS & EPISODES ratings please?

  • Dirty Mistress

    I was so offended by the portrayal of that brown man in the last Falling Skies episode. Racist or what? Just because he’s chocolate coloured doesn’t mean he stinks of body odour. Disgusting. Axe this ridiculous show now.

  • John A

    Wow 2.7 for True Blood is great. Olympics isnt affecting cable shows at all.

  • Craig gladden

    Any chance of getting combat pawn numbers?

  • Walt

    Nice for Falling Skies! Hopefully it’ll rise for the last two episodes.

  • Josh

    Numbers don’t look good for Franklin & Bash

  • Jon23812

    The new Fairly OddParents did okay considering it wasn’t promoted. I wonder how Robot & Monster did.

  • Dennis

    @Dirty Mistress What on earth are you talking about??
    There was nothing “offensive” about Falling Skies last night
