Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 10 Hank

Breaking Bad was Sunday's top cable program with a 2.4, down from last week's  2.9 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too optimistic.   True Blood was second with a 2.3, up from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were about right.

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.

  • Diane

    I’m curious about how the OWN interview with Lohan ranked

  • Eric Robinson

    0.6 drop? Low Winter Sun is near death… Sorry fans…

  • Survivor Fan

    Food Network is quietly having a really good summer- Cutthroat Kitchen and The Great Food Truck Race are both performing well. Also, Food Network Star had a great season. I think it was up from last year.

  • xwiseguyx

    Devious Maids continues to impress… glad to see it’s the real deal for Lifetime…

  • svsnt021

    @Nick
    Nick, could you post, if possible, #s for Sandwich King’s (FOOD, 11:00AM) and how did it rank against the other FOOD Sun AM shows, please? As always, much thanks in advance?

  • Stefan

    @Nick
    If possible: WWE Main Event and AM Raw please- Thanks in advance!

  • reallypeople

    Ouch at LWS… 1.467 mil and a .5 behind BB. Hey, The Killing fans… you might just get your season after all… If Netflix dumps enough money in… it can at least do on par with that and take the last spot on roster away from LWS. I also think that both subpar results of now two drama shows on roster, locks HOW for a Saturday 4th season.

    Or they could axe both… but that’s unlikely.

    As for the rest… typical Sunday results… BB and TB amazing… everything else wishes TB and BB weren’t on their night.

  • tony

    the lohan interview with oprah and “oprah, where are they now” ratings please

  • Ganon

    @Nick

    If you have the chance, could you please post just the 18-49 ratings for Adult Swim’s Saturday line-up? If that’s too much to provide, just the 12 AM to 3:30 AM portion will do.

    Much thanks in advance.

  • TimsDale4ever

    I’m glad TB is over for the season — it just seemed to be all over the place this year with too many characters and too many stories. I think this show would run better if they would just simplify it somewhat.

  • JacobYates

    @Nick
    Can you please post the ratings for Hell on Wheels? Thanks.

  • Tony

    Does anyone know what is happening with “The Client List”..Is there any chance to be renewed for 3rd season?

  • John A

    Breaking Bad still beat True Blood so that wasnt to blame for BB drop. Good for Devious Maids. Dexter steady but wow its boring me now. You wouldnt even know its the last season that last ep was boring.

  • Ryan

    @reallypeople

    My Predictions for AMC Sundays after Sep

    Oct-Mar – The Walking Dead
    April-May – Mad Men/Halt & Catch Fire
    June-July – Hell On Wheels/Turn
    Aug-Sep – The Killing/Low Winter Sun (or flipped)
    Oct=Mar – The Walking Dead

  • DM

    Any word on how Being Maci did?

  • Dillan

    I hope Being Maci and Oprah did well.

  • Brandy

    @Tony, ratings slipped in season two but according to Lifetime were still good enough to renew.However, Lifetime,Jennifer Love Hewitt and the production company are disagreeing about how to write in her real life pregnancy and who to make the baby daddy(Lifetime wants Evan,(Colin E)Hewitt wants real life baby daddy /fiancée Kyle(Brian Hallisay(.
    Good for DM doing well without a original leadin.

  • Marius

    Bad for Jungle Gold, -0.3. They should put it in different night, not Sunday.

  • TJ

    @John A… At least you got to see it. Every since Time Warner dropped Showtime I’ve missed the last 3 episodes. I do agree for a series Finale I expected the episodes to be more edge of seat. It’ll heat up when you hear the words” Only two episodes left”. Off to download them while I’m off for 2 days.

  • mathew

    why did they stop drop dead diva until october???
