True Blood was Sunday's top cable program with a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating,even with last week. Keeping Up with the Kardashians  came in second with a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

Update: More ratings data via commenter Nick below the table

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 Married to Jonas.
