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.

  • Nickelodeon Rocks

    @disney rocks – the HTR series high is 4.4 million, the episode that got 4.4 aired right after the KCAs.

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Canadian show Continuum had its season finale Sunday and it was quite good. Major character dies and interesting reveals were made. Looking forward to a second season and I suspect there will be one.

    SyFy would be very smart to buy this show like it did Lost Girl.

  • Twist Of Fate

    @disney rocks
    Well, you said the same thing about Fred and the movie and the show did WAY better than you said. As for SIU, that and Ant Farm have been slipping as of late, and so what if it had no GLC lead in, it lost to Robot and Monster(no lead in), a show with 2 days worth of promotion.

    HTR- 3.5 – 5.0 million viewers
    SIU- 3.7- 5.2

  • Mike

    Am i the only continually shocked about the amount of people who care about ratings for kids channels, is it for your kids?

  • Nick

    @Stefan – Saturday broadcast finals are not yet available to me.

    @bg – on ESPN2 at 9 PM, MLS had 270K total viewers and a .11 A18-49 rating. On NBC Sports Net at 7, it brought in 405K viewers and a .15 A18-49.

    @danielcw – Ultimate Spider-Man at 11 AM had 612K viewers (.17 A18-49) while Avengers came in at 485K viewers (.17 A18-49) at 11:37 AM.

  • disney rocks

    @Twist of Fate- No way HTR will do that good, it can’t even do that good with a solid lead-in; Also, no way SIU is in the 3 millions, it’ll be in the 4′s at least

    @Nickelodeon Rocks- The only reason HTR was that high was because of it’s lead-in, to me it’s really series high is 3.2/3.3 million

  • disney rocks

    @Twist Of Fate- Also, Fred 3 performed in line with my predictions, I predicted it would get 2.2-3.7 million, it got 3.5 million, it was on the upper end of my range, but still in it, so it did not do WAY better than I said it would

  • Twist Of Fate

    @Mike The top 3 most watched cable channels, are “kids channels” ( Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and Cartoon Network). So HA.

  • nicoleatkins

    how to rock will get atleast 3 million maybe more but nickelodeons promotion right now suck!

  • danielcw

    @Nick (or somebody else) Thank you for the ratings. Where do get those numbers from?
    I get the A18-49 part, but what does the “.17″) mean? Are you trying to say both shows had 0.17 rating?

    Does somebody know the current rating average for Disney XD?

  • tobias

    i hope HTR gets 3.5 million

  • i luv nickelodeon

    @Disney Rocks
    Well if nickelodeon keeps on promoting the ep (I’m suprised they are lol) im sure it will reach around 3.2-4.2 million. They just need to promote it more. I do think shake it up will beat How To Rock, but i think the ep of h2r will be better (in my opinion). I cant wait for the ep..

  • i luv nickelodeon

    How To Rock and Victorious are two of my favorite programs on nickelodeon right now.(: I wish nickelodeon would air some episodes of how 2 rock on the channel, cuz it would help it gain more viewers, but sadly the people who run/make up the schedule wont do it..

  • Connman

    Gotta love how the rain delay of the NASCAR race did better than most of the shows on the list!

  • bg

    @Nick..

    Thank you…

  • Mike

    @Twist of Fate
    I don’t care, I meant no offense I still occasionally watch Nick, for Spongebob and Korra repeats.

  • Starbuck

    Leverage homage to sci-fi was great. TNT better take a strong look at returning it. Besides Falling Skies and Rizzoli and Isles, Leverage is the only steady one.
