CBS won the night easily with a boost from a 45 minute football overrun.

I wanted to get everyone the early Metered Market ratings while I was waiting for the Fast Affiliate Results. They will be posted when available. Note that the football overrun will completely scramble the CBS ratings until the final results for the night are out on Tuesday.

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).
