    @TJ

    Come on man, it’s Vikings, it’s unique. No other show on the air has Vikings :)

    MGM will renew this show in the coming weeks.

  • a p garcia

    The Double Agent, Christian hater programmer at NBC convinced the network to “Pass” on “The Bible!

  • CCV

    @Meanie…As if the rest of AMC, FX, HBO, and SHOWTIME weren’t enough?

  • OWN Fan

    @Nick, do you know the ratings to OWN’s ‘Super Soul Sunday’ (at 11am) and ‘Master Class’?
    Thanks.

  • Rick

    TWD–I see “resurrected actors” in every episode.
    Are zombies some sort of Biblical metaphor?

  • TerryJacksonNYC

    @SJ

    I’m not Bible thumper, but I’m pretty sure than a show called The Bible would do well in most countries that have considerable numbers of Christians. It is the most popular book of all time, so any show based on it will do well, especially if it’s decent. I don’t know if it is any good, but I do know that people prefer television to reading, so it makes sense that a TV version of histories best selling book would do well. I’m surprised it didn’t do even better, actually.

    I have no interest in it and won’t be watching it, but its success was ensured the moment it got the green light.

    Your numbers are deceiving as early in the week you posted this:
    Rank Shows Net Day Time Viewers Live +SD (000)
    1 THE BIBLE HIST Sun 08:00P-10:00P 13103
    2 Walking Dead AMC Sun 09:00P-10:01P 11296
    So how can The Bible be the highest of 2013 and lose to Walking Dead all in the same night? Or do you work the numbers to the shows you like?

  • davie

    @unclebobo
    The Bible lost to TWD because, even though it had more total viewers, the 18-49 rating was lower. By alot.

    Great for TWD and Shameless…sucks that Californicatiom didnt make the list, hope SHOWTiME isnt regretting the decision for Season 7.

  • UncleBobo

    @davie
    I have done the Nielsen TV Ratings survey and all it means is someone put it down that they might have watched the TWD in that hour. So there is No way to know for sure if they switch over or not. There is no box anymore. Just the fans that love their show!

  • Nytelife

    Stop calling this the “Top Cable Show”….

    It is the TOP SHOW on any and all networks. Period..

    I understand the difference, but give it the credit it deserves. It beats The Big Bang Theory hands down in the ratings.

  • Nytelife

    @UncleBobo

    That is incorrect. I know two people that have the boxes in their homes. The survey is an additional tool used to gather viewing statistics. I have received them a few times before, usually with a dollar bill inside the package.

    There are some users who have given permission to Nielsen to report on their DVR habits by taking the data from the supplier.

    Currently, according to Nielsen, there are over 25,000 set top boxes in the United States.

    THE BIBLE – It was good, glad to see the ratings were as good as they were and hope it keeps it up.

  • John Furst

    Why can’t I find the ratings for AFTER LATELY? Does anyone know how the 3rd season is doing?
