Real Housewives of Atlanta was Sunday's top cable show with a 1.9, up from last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating. Dexter
came in second with a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, up from a 1.3 last week. Your predictions for Homeland and Dexter were too optimistic.

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 for specific shows.

    Kim who? RHOA is still the best of the Housewives.

  • magg

    I think RHOA will continue to be the highest rated and most watched of the franchise for a long time. RHONJ’s highest viewers this season was 3.4m and Atlanta’s previous season peaked at 3.9m despite the previous year’s 4.4m.
    Sure it will go even higher.

  • onion

    @ Nick,
    Can you please post the ratings for “My Little Pony” at Saturday 10:30 AM The Hub?
    Thanks in advance.

  • lakergirl

    If you tally all of the numbers from the multiple Real Housewives of Atlanta viewings Sunday night, it is crazy! So much for Kim Zolciak’s prediction that the ratings would drop without her. And with the Kenya/Porscha drama, I don’t see the ratings dropping anytime soon.

  • Melanie

    Way to go RHOA!! Great episode. LOL, like the rest of you all had said, “Kim who?” Don’t miss her one bit. Kenya and Portia keep enough of the drama going.

  • jamie

    Does anyone know how the VH1 Divas special did in the ratings?

  • lakergirl

    VH1 Divas was a joke. There were no divas on that show. I guess they can’t get real stars to do the show anymore so they have to settle for people we won’t even remember 10 years from now.

  • poweranimals

    Nick,

    Any chance we can get the ratings for Victorious, Marvin Marvin, TMNT, and Power Rangers?

  • The90sAreAllThat

    Victorious: 3.6 (3.550)
    Marvin Marvin: 2.9 (2.935)

    It was released on Futon Critic. No idea about TMNT and PRs.

  • Jason

    Dude, where is Nick? We need the ratings for TMNT!

  • Poweranimals

    ^Maybe he’s on vacation this week.
