The Walking Dead was Sunday's top cable show with a 5.4 adults 18-49 rating, up  from from last week's 4.9. The Soul Train Awards were the number two cable program with a 1.6 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.

    ITS TIME NETWORK TV TAKE NOTE FROM THESE MORE GRITTY REALISTIC SHOWS LIKE WALKING DEAD.. IF YOUR GONNA MAKE ANYTHING YOU WANT IT AS REALISTIC AS POSSIBLE

  • Alec

    That wasn’t The Walking Dead fall finale. Next Sunday is…

  • john

    Fall finale is this Sunday, but glad to see Walking Dead bounce back to a 5.4.

  • eridapo

    TWD.

    Impressive. Most impressive.

  • Alec

    With that being said, ratings are going to be HUGE

  • Jeremy

    TMNT Ratings please. Thanks in advance, Nick!

  • John A

    Hope the fall finale can get a 6.0

  • Bryan

    @Nick – Can you post Nickelodeon’s Saturday ratings for:
    11am Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    11:30am Kung Fu Panda
    1pm Power Rangers Samurai
    8pm VICTORiOUS
    8:30pm Marvin Marvin

    Thanks!

  • DW

    coming next spring. Dancing With The zombies. :)

  • Brandon

    What aired on ABC Family that got a 1.1?

  • Conor

    I… sort of don’t believe those ratings.

    Like, literally, don’t believe.

    I don’t think it’s possible that more than 5 times more people watch Walking Dead than anything else.

  • John A

    I still think Homeland isnt doing that great. Dexter goes against TWD and gets over a 1.0 each week. Homeland so much buzz should be able to do the same.

  • Oliver

    @John A

    Dexter is a monster hit for Showtime. Showtime will be delighted that Homeland is even in its ballpark.

  • john

    @Conor

    As Yoda noted, That is why you fail.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    I can already tell nickelodeon will have the cable top 25 full with spongebob and other programs. Nick most certainly won this week. Was their anything new on disney (Sunday).? I think dog with blog was. Does anybody know what it got.?
    Good job TWD.!(:

  • DW

    sho goes by total viewers during the week through repeats and on demand /DVR.

    @ conor i’m a bit skeptical about those walking dead numbers too but if its says it is then it is.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Brandon
    I think it was home alone.

  • Mon

    Another impressive ratings from The Walking Dead. It’s not hard to imagine it might crack a 6.0 once it returns on February, just after the football season. The midseason finale next week might get high 5s.

  • lakergirl

    Good job, Soul Train Awards. RIP Don Cornelius..he would be proud. Also, great showing for Apollo Live.

  • richard

    Great episode of The Walking Dead!
