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.

    @MDM

    HAHA! HBO must live in a fantasy land. DUNHAM is killing their Sunday nights.

  • Reache

    Thanks @Nick!

  • Andrew

    Girls is great this season!

  • BigBrotherFan

    @Andrew

    Yeah..You and all 3 viewers seem to think so

  • DW

    i’ve been watching girls on sunday morning on demand before it hits on t.v that night so i cant watch other programs that night.

  • Poweranimals

    Nick, can you post the ratings for Dog With a Blog?

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Thanks ever so much, as always, Nick!!! Appreciate it a lot!!!

  • samurai99

    Your harping about Girls would be a lot more impressive if you weren’t saying the same things before it got renewed for its longest season yet.

  • Inigo

    I do think the season premiere of Game of Thrones will adversely affect the season finale’s rating of The Walking Dead. I hope not.

  • Moose

    @ TV Gord

    You are welcome. I am glad it worked out for you.

    I have been called many things in my life, brilliant isn’t one of them, but I’ll take it. :)

  • AppleStinx

    Wasn’t the Oscars over by 9pm on the West Coast? I still like ‘The Walking Dead’ but Rick’s sickly stare ticks me off these days.

  • Zach

    I’m going to have to start watching Walking Dead apparently. Bar Rescue steady, should be good for another great season…..guess Car Lot Rescue failed??

  • Meanie

    The Walking Dead does great against Oscars, Football & Grammy’s. AMC really needs to put a new show on behind it to keep the success going & not The Talking Dead.

    I think seeing these numbers for a cable show 11million & 5.7 demo there is no excuse for fans to say oh “this show is on cable so wont have great ratings or w/e” This isn’t the first a cable show debut or had high ratings. The Sopranos did it on HBO i believe at one point 12.1 million views, BET The game debut with 7.7 million. So no more excuse why cable cant compete with broadcast TV.

  • SarahL

    Yay, The Walking Dead is a monster! Nothing keeps it down.

  • jT

    @mdm girls viewers would rather watch the show on hbo go/demand than live. If showtime anywhere wasn’t laggy it would effect their shows too.

  • webb

    @ Nick,
    Thanks for posting your valuable MLP numbers :) I’m thrilled The Hub renewed Season 4!
    Now My little pony S3 is end, I wanna see this seasons breakdown so later compare to next season.
    If possible, Would you post 11/10/12(10am+10:30pm),11/17,12/8,12/15,12/22 and 1/19/13’s episode ratings please?? It’ll immensely helfpul.

  • PurpleDrazi

    And The Walking Dead continues to put most network shows to shame!

    You all should give Andrea a break. She is VERY annoying at the moment but I think the character is true to life. I mean, seriously, if you were thrust into a world with zombies trying to eat you and danger all around and friends and family getting killed off one by one, you would believe almost any lie if it ment you get to stay in a safe place with a food, hot water and a roof over your head.

  • Truth

    Why does everyone keep whing about AMC should put another show on behind Walking Dead to capitolize on it’s ratings?! Did that work for Hell On Wheels or Comic Book Men? No! People know how to change a channel.. If the show can’t earn an audience on it’s own you can’t trick/force one upon it..

  • Hillbilly

    Bring back the old showrunner for TWD. The show is becoming boring. I’m gonna complain every week until the action increases & the drama decreases.

    Take that AMC. :razz:

  • Audrey

    3 sundays in a row and kktm has not been in the ratings.what a disappointment
