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.

    @Nick

    Do you have the re-run ratings for iCarly: iGoodbye?

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Thanks ever so much, Nick!!! I appreciate it a lot!!!

  • Anonymous

    @Nick Thanks for all of the ratings. You are so helpful.

    To clarify my question right: Do you have the re-run ratings from Saturday and/or Sunday Night (if one or both nights aired) for iCarly: iGoodbye? Please post them if possible.

    Again, thank you very much for all of this hard work. :)

    Stop saying marvin marvin should go to Disney, Disney is great and I don’t care what you all say, and marvin marvin is rubbish as usual from nickelodeon have you notice the only shows which make it is victorious and icarly which are a dannschnieder production, so if you didn’t have him the only show which would make it in nick is animation shows.

  • Lino

    I agree marvin marvin is too crap for Disney channel, it suites nickelodeon but if a show had to come to Disney I would say that bucket and skinner should have been on Disney xd

  • Nick

    Nickelodeon is going to seriously regret cancelling “How To Rock”. Also, the reason the How to Rock ratings have been down…is because of the cancellation. Nickelodeon has been putting it in the death slots at 9:30 pm most of the time. And when not 9:30…They have been putting it a 9. So that’s why the average has dropped to 2.4.

    Top shows on tv right now:
    1. Walking Dead
    2. Big Bang Theory
    3. Downton Abbey
    4. Dexter
    5. Copper
    6. Homeland
    7. The Middle
    8. Person Of Intrest
    9. Comic Book Men
    10. GH

    That is all over the entertainment map, and no reality crap. But TWD is head and shoulders about everything else.

  • Ant

    Sunday’s mid-season finale is going to HUGE!

    Also, I can’t believe we haven’t seen a wave of cheap zombie-centric ripoffs by the networks. Perhaps that’s coming next fall..

  • Nick

    @Anonymous: iCarly: iGoodbye pulled in 3.143 million viewers (0.54 A18-49) at 7 PM on Saturday and 2.559 million viewers (0.43 A18-49) at 5 PM on Sunday.

  • Craig

    Cory – Dexter is not the first show on Showtime to break out and do well,Queer as Folk did the same thing

  • bsj968

    The Walking Dead’s premise is be wary of the zombies, be afraid of humans.

    They could have just as easily made it about surviving after a nuclear holocaust with the same effect, or after power goes out in the entire world. I read somewhere that Kripke almost made Revolution about zombies until they came up with the power idea.

  • SpyTV

    @DW

    “coming next spring. Dancing With The zombies”

    No need. Dancing with the “Stars” is close enough.

  • david

    Home Alone 1 did really good for a movie that is twenty years old. The new Home Alone at 8 was really funny and did pretty good. I was thinking it would do a little bit better though. Victorious did good on Saturday night. Thanks Nick as allways for the additional ratings.

  • mml

    Walking Dead needs a bigger budget for next season.

  • Greg

    The 45 minute (average) format is not enough and the producers of these popular shows should consider a longer episode (1 hour?). Just a suggestion, because many of us plan our week around watching theses shows. Or else just go the whole hog and make a telemovie at the end of each season.
