SELECT SUNDAY CABLE TV RATINGS FROM MARCH 27 - MAY 8, 2016

Select Ratings from Original Thursday Cable telecasts from March 27 - May 8, 2016:

Here's a recap of the ratings of Sunday shows in April. AMC's THE WALKING DEAD concluded its sixth season with a massive 14.19 million viewers, its second most viewed episode of the season (after the premiere's 14.63M), but its lowest finale rating since season 3 (12.42M). FEAR THE WALKING DEAD began its second season with 6.67 million viewers, much lower than series premiere which brought in 10.13M, but only slightly lower than the season one finale (6.86M). The show has settled at around the 4.5M mark. On Showtime, SHAMELESS concluded its sixth season with 1.63 million viewers, up from the season premiere (1.44M) and from the season five finale (1.55M); BILLIONS finished its first season with a solid 1.01 million viewers, higher than the series premiere (904K), and only slightly lower than the season average (1.053M). After a 13-month hiatus, HOUSE OF LIES began its fifth season with a series low 399,000 viewers, down from the season 4 premiere (723K) and finale (503K), it rose to 418,000 in week 2, but fell down to a dismal 258,000 by week 5. DICE premiered to a low 254,000 viewers, and fell to 155,000 by week 5; PENNY DREADFUL began its third season with 540,000 viewers, slightly lower than last year's premiere (575K), but not a series low; and it rose to 554,000 in its second week. HBO's GAME OF THRONES premiered to 7.94 million viewers (down slightly from last year's 8 million), lead-out SILICON VALLEY started with 1.86M (down from last year's 2.13M), and VEEP began with 1.1M (a rise from last year's 1.05M). The series finale of TOGETHERNESS found 398,000 viewers (up from 326K last year), it's highest rated episode since the season premiere (430K), and fifth highest viewed episode ever. VINYL ended with 730,000, while GIRLS concluded to 582,000 and 512,000 for its two episodes. Finally, THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE, on Starz, premiered to 363,000 and 334,00 for its two premiere episodes, but dropped to 163,000 by its fifth episode. It is still performing better than Starz's most recent Sunday show, FLESH AND BONE, which was at 122K by its fifth episode, and eventually concluded with 93,000.

Table is organized based on the show's 18-49 rating (which I do not list).
