The series premiere of NYC 22 drew just a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating at 10pm. Our polled readers were *way* too optimistic. That compares with a 2.1 rating average for new episodes of CSI:Miami since January, and a 1.7 for the significantly delayed finale last week. With no sports or awards shows to push the line up around, CBS’ The Amazing Race was even with last week’s 2.5 adults 18-49 rating. The Good Wife drew a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, even with its last new episode three weeks ago. Earlier, the 60 Minutes tribute to Mike Wallace drew a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating, down 36% vs. a 2.2 rating following the Masters last week. CBS topped the night’s adults 18-49 ratings with just a 1.8 rating average.
After a repeat of Once Upon a Time, part four of Titanic drew a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a preliminary 0.8 rating on Saturday night. Titanic may have sunk GCB, it was down 21% vs. last week’s 1.9 rating at 10pm to a series low 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.
After three weeks of repeats, The Simpsons returned with a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating, down 8% vs. a 2.4 rating in its last new episode. After one repeat week, Bob’s Burgers drew a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating, up 6% vs. a 1.7 rating two weeks ago. And moving to 9:30, The Cleveland Show had a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating, up 67% vs. a 1.3 rating at 7:30 two weeks ago.
Harry’s Law fell to a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, vs. a 1.0 rating last week. Celebrity Apprentice had the same 2.1 adults 18-49 rating as last week.

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live baseball game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.
Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)
Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
