Metered Market Overnight Ratings:  This is normally the first available ratings information, and is based on the electronic measurement service that Nielsen provides in 56 of the nation’s largest markets.  In each market a sample of homes is selected to represent that individual market.  Often, networks or syndicators provide metered market information as an early indicator of a program’s performance.  In aggregate, the 56 metered markets represent 79,890,610 homes, or 70% of all U.S. TV households.  Preliminary metered market data are available as early as 8:00AM (ET).  Final metered market information, reflecting line-up changes, pre-emptions and runovers, are normally available by 3:30PM (ET).
