NASCAR Sprint Cup was Sunday's top cable program, earning a 1.4 adults 18-49 cable rating. The season finale of Breaking Bad came in second, with a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, down from last week's 1.4. Several popular Sunday cable scripted shows took the Labor Day weekend off.

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 Hell On Wheels.

  • MattM

    Are Monday cable ratings going to be available today?

  • Steve

    Where are Saturdays ratings? We’ve had Fridays & now Sundays, but not Saturdays!

  • Mark

    How did “Copper” on BBC America do?

  • Steve

    BBC America’s ratings seem to be a mystery. Still trying to find Doctor Who’s rating for Saturday. If they were good BBC America would now be gloating and telling the World by now… Something tells me they ‘aint what they expected!

  • Florian

    @Nick Do you have any numbers on Web Therapy & Weeds ? Thank you.

  • Chris

    Dr. Faux (because I grew up watching Dr. Who, and this new series is something else entirely) is only ever going to be a hit in the UK. I remember when they had higher standards than us. Those days are gone.

  • Jared

    I’m surprised Married to Jonas is holding up so well on E. Too bad his brothers show on the CW isn’t doing nearly as good.

  • Ike

    @Chris, I completely disagree. I think the revival captures the essential tone of the first 26 years reasonably well, and it’s appropriately eccentric. Plus Matt Smith is excellent.

    I imagine the ratings may be down since BBC America didn’t have much time to promote it. The BBC seems to be getting even worse than usual with that bizarre UK sneak-scheduling. Those weirdos. The premieres of seasons 5 and 6 on BBC America had outdoor ads in NYC, but not this time. I hope somebody will post the numbers soon….

  • Steve

    @Chris. I know it’s not going to be a ‘hit’ in the States. Even with Tennant as the Doctor it was lucky to get over 1m on Sy-Fy. I would be very interested if it could break the 2m barrier for BBC America. Coppers got 1.8m, so it might just do it!

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    Do you have the final numbers for WrestleMania 28 – Rock vs. Cena (Aired Saturday, August 25 on NBC)?

  • Nick

  • Ike

    Holy crap! 0.6 in the demo for Doctor Who, that’s huge for a small channel like BBC America. I didn’t see that coming. That matches NBC’s demo rating and beats Fox’s college football. (Admittedly those are unpopular teams from what I’ve heard, but still….)

  • Nick

    @Stefan – the final for WM 28 on NBC was 2.509 million viewers and a .83 A18-49 rating.

  • Fraser

    Thanks Nick, amazing rating!

  • Florian

    @Nick Thank you ! ;)

  • Stefan

    Thanks Nick!

  • Steve

    Thank you Nick!

  • The End

    The new season of Doctor Who is actually pretty good. Thought the twist at the end was pretty obvious though. The Doctor is considered one of the smartest guys in the known universe and even he had no idea of how to crack into the Dalek mainframe and make changes. So a random human woman who by all purposes looks pretty much like any ordinary woman, wouldn’t be able to either.

    She’s the Doctors next companion by the way. Making her debut in the Christmas special.

  • CrimTV

    @The End

    Watched this and as i’m from the UK the UK public are very happy with the new companion’s performance in the episode. I’m very excited to see how she can be the companion, considering she is a dalek and now dead from explosion. I think maybe they’ll go back in time, but it might not be that simple :)

  • The End

    @CrimTV

    Personally I think Clara(Her rumored name) will join The Doctor at some point in her past. What with the Tardis being able to go back and forth through time, he’l likely meet her by chance in her past and she joins up with him. Thus the timeline where she crash lands on that planet seperates from the current one and never actually happens.

    She’s a good actress and its about time we go back to just the Doctor and 1 companion. 3 has always seemed like a crowd in this show. Doctor + Amy, or Doctor + Rory would of been better than all 3. Never the less they’ve done well and hopefully they get a good exit.(They leave in the Weeping Angels episode btw).
