The Walking Dead was Sunday's top cable original with a 5.7, up a tenth from last week's 5.6 adults 18-49 rating. Live from the Red Carpet was the highest-rated non-Walking Dead program with a 1.5 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.

    Good for Shameless! :)

  • forg

    The Walking Dead is unstoppable

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Do you have #s for the top 3 Sat & Sun AM FOOD shows to post, if you please? As always, I’ll appreciate your valuable contribution!!! Thanks in advance!!!

  • Stefan

    @Nick

    WWE Main Event, Saturday Morning Slam and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • silvit

    Amazing for The Walking Dead against the Oscars. Network tv, take notes.

  • AJ

    Woot! Go Austin & Ally!!! :D

  • Pat

    Talking Dead was rated higher than almost every show on NBC last week. only SNL and The Biggest Loser were higher and Chicago Fire tied it.

  • Timmy

    What’s funny is that even Talking Dead and the Walking Dead encore do about as well as Breaking Bad, and better than Mad Men.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    AMC should change their name to AWD (All Walking Dead). Seriously, a 5.7 rating in this day and age, and on cable nonetheless, is unheard of.

  • TV Gord

    When I try to go to your homepage, I’ve been getting a notification (since the weekend) that says your server is down. I was only able to get to this page because you posted it on Facebook. Is anyone else having this problem?

  • Reven8ger

    But i’m still wondering why AMC is being so dumb and not programming a new show after The Walking Dead as it would be a powerful lead-in.

  • senor chang

    and this was directly competing with The Oscars. um, wow.

    seriously, AMC needs to program something new after this.

  • Moose

    @ TV Gord

    Whenever I have problems getting to this site, I just refresh/reload the screen. It works for me, I don’t know if it will work for you.

  • Moose

    I still think this past episode of The Walking Dead was quite boring. After all that, did anyone honestly think that Andrea was going to kill that whackjob (The Governor)?

    Andrea has to be one of the dumbest characters on the show.

  • TV Gord

    @Moose, you’re brilliant! Thank you! :-) (I wonder why this is happening, though.) :-)

  • DW

    like i wrote yesterday. 16 is too many episodes for the walking dead. yes its doing great numbers but after a while when you keep doing these filler eps your diluting the product. the storytelling needs to be a little tighter.

  • omabin

    Andrea is a very well written character. Yes, she is frustrating, but so are most people’s actions in real life. That is just how it goes. Rick is by far my favorite character on the show, yes, but Andrea is well written and I appreciate her journey and evolution.

    As for the ratings, I love that the walking dead does so well. It is my favorite not ended TV show and I am glad that it does as good as it is. At this point, it is hard to measure its success as there is nothing that is reasonable to compare it with. It is on a league all on its own. To go up against the Oscars, that is incredible.

  • John A

    I was expecting a 4.8 for TWD. Amazing thatit rose against very tough competition

  • TimsDale4ever

    Good for SHAMELESS considering it was up against the awards.

  • TimsDale4ever

    Where is Saturday’s cable ratings?
