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.

    At least it looks like Political Animals, didn’t do any worse this week, maybe it it will pick up a little for the finale after all the olympics, doubt it, but I’m an optimist.

    @ Nick
    Do you also have final Broadcast ratings?

    If you have, can you please post the final numbers for UFC on FOX4?

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Robot and Monster did good. It would of got higher numbers if nickelodeon promoted the show. I only saw like 3 promos.. it beat shake it up by a little bit lol. Overall I liked the show.. its better than fanboy and planet sheen for sure.. O and who ever said the show got cancelled is wrong. It got picked up for 14 ep as a second season if nickelodeon decides to keep the show going.. Nickelodeon should really promote things right..!!

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Robot and Monster got a higher rating than shake it up.! Lol :D

  • Nick

    Good for The Newsroom. Nice uptick in the demo.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    Well… Robot and Monster did decent. It would have done better if it wasn’t promoted for only a week. Thanks @Nick for the ratings.

    Expected Shake It Up to do better, with these ratings, how can we assume “Made in Japan” will get good ratings? Awful week for both nick and disney with new premieres..

  • Matt

    Political Animals should be doing 1.0 with 4-6M. Sad. Should’ve gotten more exposure.

    Good numbers for The Newsroom.

  • GG

    True Blood never dies.Love it.

  • Jon23812

    @Nathan, but “Made in japan” won’t be airing during the Olympics.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    What is true blood about.?

  • Dillan

    YES! Falling Skies went up! Kardashians still going strong.

    I’m surprised True Blood went up. This season has been a real bore.

  • Martin

    Nice for Political Animals to finally start to level off, up like 60k in viewers and steady in demo, hopefully it will go up again even more next week so it will continue.

    Didn’t the head of USA or NBC or whatever say something along the lines that basically meant it was less about the ratings and more about the critical acclaim, because of all the USA shows this has the most chance of getting recognised.

    Falling Skies up after a week off and against the Olympics, a little bit shocked at that.

    Also, True Blood up too, can’t wait for next week, really starting to heat up now gearing towards the finale.

  • truebloodlover27

    LOVED TRUE BLOOD THIS WEEK!!! and of course Breaking Bad!!! :) and small town security always has me laughin that lady is so funny

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    @Jon23812
    Yeah, I know that. Although, I expected SIU to increase in its ratings since Disney is promoting the heck out of the season finale.

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Does changing the channel during commericals on a new ep/premier of a show effect ratings/viewership..??

  • Martin

    @i luv nickelodeon

    Its about that girl from the nickelodeon show “True Jackson, VP” who sells her blood.

    :)

  • sam

    Olympics were not that interesting. Iam not surprised shows did well against them.

  • Jon23812

    @i luv Nickelodoen, yes. If you only watch the program and not the commercials, Nielsen counts it as you not watching the program.

  • Mike

    @Martin
    That corporate talk, odds are it needed to at least stay in 2mil for it to get picked up, odds are this series will go down as a pretty decent mini series, the most we can hope is maybe another set of 6 episodes in a better timeslot, like not against Breaking Bad,True Blood, newsroom and the olympics, but even that seems unlikely.
