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.

    I bet her numbers will improve if y’all vote for her! http://www.babinfanclub.com/contests/2012/contestants/view-fan-photo-node/1624502126

  • Martin

    @Mike

    Hope it does get renewed, its a really good show.

  • disney rocks

    SIU did okay, it was the island new episode of the night around a sea of reruns.

    My guess- Shake It UP:Made In Japan- August 17- 4.0-5.5 million; How To Rock Cee Lo- August 18- 2.5-3.5 million

  • Debbie

    @disney rocks… I agree with Shake it Up being the island premiere. But Disney has premiered it as an island show before and managed to get 3.1 million total viewers.

    I do think SIU: Made in Japan will do well. I predict 4.7 – 5.5 million. I could be wrong & it could be higher. Disney has an amazing promotion team and surprises when it comes to big premieres like that. It should be fine.

  • The End

    I bet people were surprised about Charleston, more so that they live underground?

    2 more episodes to go, and as said weeks ago, there’s Terry O’Quinn.

  • The End

    @Dirty Mistress

    As Dennis said, the heck you talking about?

    I don’t even remember what you’re talking about even.

  • Tom

    It looks like Flip Men and Bar Rescue, my Sunday guilty pleasures, did pretty well. Way to go SPIKE!

  • Mike

    @Martin
    I hope so too, I really enjoy it, and I love the cast, but I’m watching it as if it was a mini series, just so I won’t be dissapointed if it doesn’t get picked up.

  • Kaylie

    Robot and Monster was against the repeat of Toy Story 3.

  • Chris

    Has Glades been renewed for another season?

  • i luv nickelodeon

    My opinion/guess of SIU and H2R

    SIU Made In Japan- 3.5-4.3 million
    H2R Cee Lo- 3.2-4.2 million

  • Tj

    To the post saying “that can’t be good for Franklin and Bash” it was a repeat. New episodes are on Tue. Hopefully Leverage gets another season. Last nights episode was better than they have been.

  • Mike

    Will Leverage Get renewed at those numberts

  • JR

    I think Dirty Mistress is just trolling. As for Political Animals, I think it was a mistake to put it on USA. It just doesn’t fit in with the rest of their programming and the type of viewers they usually attract. It would have been much better suited on one of the other cable networks, perhaps HBO or Showtime.

  • disney rocks

    @i luv nickelodeon- the HTR series high is 3.3 million, so I’d be shocked if it did more than slightly above that, also HTR seems lead-in dependent, and it will not have a Victorious lead-in, also there is no way a big special of a polar show on Disney will be that low

  • disney rocks

    popular, not polar

  • bg

    @NICK…

    Would be kind enough to update us with the MLS Game of the Week on ESPN2 on Sunday evening starting at 9:00 PM EST (LA Galaxy vs. Seattle)?

    And MLS game on NBCSPN starting at 7:00 PM EST (featuring Portland vs.Dallas)?

    Thank you again for all your input…

  • Nickelodeon Rocks

    My predictions for SIU/H2R

    Made In Japan – Anywhere over 4.8
    H2R Cee Lo Special – 2.8-3.5

  • Nickelodeon Rocks

    I’ll be shocked if H2R gets above 3.5, i’m surprised Nickelodeon is actually promoting it.

  • danielcw

    Can anybody get the ratings for Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers:EMH on Disney XD?
