The CW’s The Vampire Diaries may have been tops in EW.com reader ratings last week, but that was only based on partial data — we hadn’t yet been able to include Friday and Sunday programming. And now that a full week of new TV is under our belt, a new champion has emerged: AMC’s Breaking Bad, in which a desperate Walt turned to Saul for help after Gus brought the hammer down. Also moving into the top ranks: the season premieres of Friday’s sci-fi freakout Fringe, and Sunday’s lawyer-cum-political-cum-domestic drama The Good Wife. Check out the full standings below: 

2. The Vampire Diaries (The CW)

3. Parks and Recreation (NBC)

4. Fringe (Fox)

5. The Good Wife (CBS)

Honorable mentions: Modern Family; Grey’s Anatomy; Community; The Secret Circle
