Breaking Bad 515 Jesse

Breaking Bad was Sunday's top cable program with a 3.2 way up from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. NFL Countdown and Real Housewives of New Jersey tied for second with each earning a 1.1. NFL Countdown was even with last week, while Real Housewives of New Jersey was up from a 1.0.

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.

    Count me in as one of the ! million viewers who watched Low Winter Sun though I can’t tell you why. It’s as boring as heck.

  • Oliver

    @Nick

    Thankyou so much for the Community ratings. Always appreciate your posts!

  • Tommy M.

    I can’t wait to see what the ratings will be for the last 2 episodes of Breaking Bad! These past few episodes have been some of the best TV I’ve ever watched!

    BTW is anyone that uses Chrome having issues with the boarders on this page acting all screwy?

  • Tommy M.

    @ Tina F.

    AMC has already announced a spinoff of Breaking Bad. It will center around Saul and will be called “Better Call Saul.”

    I’m happy for Devious Maids. Staying around 0.9 is very good for Lifetime. Can’t wait for Drop Dead Diva to come back ! I love it !

  • Nothing But Cancellation

    Low Winter Sun is dead

    12.5% of retention from Breaking Bad’s lead-in

  • JR

    @Nick, usually don’t ask since futoncritic ratings usually posts ratings; but some of the ratings “were not available” at press time. Do you know what “Sweetie Pies” “Six Little Mcghees” did on saturday, and “Super Soul Sunday” and “Oprah’s Lifeclass” did on Sunday?

  • MadMan400096

    @Nick: Why isn’t the E/I hour included?

  • Atlas

    @rob60990

    Bates Motel is NOT a disappointment. F U. It has an incredibly talented cast; Freddie Highmore & Vera Farmiga have excellent chemistry. Screw you.

  • Cora

    Dexter beats Boardwalk Empire, and The Newsroom beats Ray. It’s a wash.

    Anyone know the White Queen’s ratings on Saturday?
