True Blood was Sunday's top cable program with a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating,up from a 2.6 last week. NASCAR Sprint Cup coverage came in second with a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.

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.

    Nice, 1.4 for Falling Skies! Can’t wait for Season 3.

  • Michel

    how did austin & ally get!! on sunday?!
    and how to rock on saturday?!

  • TimsDale4ever

    TB at 2.8 — incredible and on top. Should show everyone that people still want to see scripted TV much more than these stupid docu-dramas that are all over the place. A few of them would be Ok, several hundred of them is too many — especially when 95% of the show is about people sitting around yelling at each other. I don’t get it…

  • bob

    Good job for Army Wives. They will get a 7th Season for sure if they want it.

  • Mickie

    Any ratings for OWN’s “Love Town” at 10pm? Thank you.

  • Brandy

    Does anyone know if DRop Dead Diva ratings are good by Lifetime standards?Or when well hear a renwal or cancellation?

  • Bert

    Hardcore pawn was on as well, how were their ratings?

  • John A

    Every show seems to be up.

  • hulu

    Does anyone know the ratings for Copper?

  • BH

    Those were great numbers for Lifetime’s “Army Wives,” OWN’s “Oprah’s Next Chapter” and TNT’s “Falling Skies”

  • I luv nickelodeon

    Wow good for oprah next chapter.! I think thats a series high. ( i really don’t know haha)

    @Nick
    Do u have How To Rock, and you gotta see this numbers from Saturday.?
    O and You gotta see this aired another new ep on Sunday at 7pm. Thanks nick.(:

  • Disney

    @Nick

  • Melvin

    What is how to rocks ratings please @nick

  • Lucas

    If Brekaing Bad keeps growing this way, it will beat its season premiere on the finale.

  • Nathan (NR2012)

    It would be nice if @Nick or anyone else could post the ratings for:

    Austin and Ally – 8:00 PM Sunday, DSNY
    How to Rock – 8:00 PM Saturday, Nick

    Thanks in advance!!

  • Coffee Steve

    Good for Falling Skies, Season 3 should be good

  • Rocco

    Not even Breaking Bad can help Small Town Security. That’s a good thing. Maybe AMC will get the message, if they stop whining about Dish long enough to notice.

  • tj

    Poor Leverage. It’s sad a couple of bad episodes has sank this series. Last weeks episode with Elliot as the chef was the best in a long while. Hopefully more episodes like such can bring it higher up in the rankings.

  • Dennis

    Yes! Great rise for Falling Skies!

    Basic cable’s #1 scripted drama in the 18-49 demo 2 years running.
