You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.

Definitions: 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 football 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.

    ANTM did a gret job i guess

  • Matt

    get rid of dogs and put POI repeat there. will do much better

  • SJ

    Time for DITC to exit through CBS’s doggy door. #dogpuns

  • Joseph

    Whjere were Univision’s numbers and numbers for all networks in the 18-34 demo??

    Can you update this page once that information is available??

    I would think Univision topped all broadcast networks in the 18-34 demo last night (June 6th), and probably finished second among the broadcast nets in the 18-49 demo9 as well.

    However, I suspect TNT’s NBA playoff game (San Antonio at Oklahoma City) drew more viewers than any broadcast program and any other cable program.

    And NBC Sports Network’s (formerly Versus) coverage of the Stanley Cup Finals (New Jersey at Los Angeles) probably drew more viewers than anything other than the NBA game, “So You Think You Can Dance?”, and the CBS rerun lineup.

  • Mike

    HAHA Dogs in the city. I love dogs but this show is really bad.

  • John A

    ANTM repeats well when a new ep can get 0.4-0.5.

  • Jason

    I don’t get it. The major networks not even cracking a 3.0 in the ratings for the summer. Guess there’s nothing good on those networks these days during the summer. Cable most likely to blame.

  • James D.

    “Dogs in the City” left a dump on Les Moonves’ front lawn. Time to send it to the farm.

  • Joseph

    Dang the crew here is being harsh ,
    I like Dogs In The City , and the network needs to mix it up so why not try it for a 13 episode stint and just see what happens if they keep giving it some support.

  • Clarke

    Dogs In The City needs to be put down, permanently! Those are awful ratings for CBS. What were they thinking…. the show would have worked on Animal Planet but not a big 4 network.

  • Joseph

    My wish , get Justin Silver on the talk show circuit with a pup in tow and see if they can get the audience up a few points.

  • Ben Thompson

    Why didn’t NBC air the hockey game last night? Would have done much better than a 0.9.

  • a p garcia

    I am a Dog Person and CBC should put DITC through the doggie door. I guess Betty White did OK considering it was summer.

  • Joseph

    Heck , it could even make sense to give Justin Silver a weekly segment on the morning news once a week either solo or with another guest where they give tips in the care of common pets.

  • K

    Such harsh criticism for DITC. I guess it is not doing well, partly due to Justin not sleeping or trying to get into bed, the people he is helping. It will be interesting to see how the 2 “dating” shows on FOX tonite, Take me Out and The Choice do.

  • DIANNA

    WE LOVE “DOGS IN THE CITY”! CBS NEEDS TO PROMOTE THIS SHOW BETTER. JUSTIN SHOULD GO ON ‘THE TALK” SHOW WITH JULIE. I TOLD ALOT OF MY CO-WORKERS ABOUT THIS SHOW YESTERDAY AND THEY WATCHED IT LAST NIGHT AND LOVED IT. ALL OTHER NETWORK TV AT THAT TIME IS BORING. AT LEAST “DOGS” IS A SHOW THE WHOLE FAMILY CAN WATCH TOGETHER. I HOPE CBS STICKS WITH THIS SHOW. I AM SICK OF TALENT SHOWS & THE SAME OLD FORMAT JUNK. THIS AT LEAST IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO WATCH AND ENJOY.

  • disney rocks

    Probably one of the ANTM reruns will go down.

  • bluone

    I like the dogs show !! How people can watch repeats is the real question !! I can’t stand repeats !

  • Ken

    Ah Summer repeats…who cares.

    The only repeat numbers i want to see are Whitney & Community on friday :)
    But i have become a big fan of POI just from warching Thursday repeats.

  • Nick

    Dogs in the City, get ready to meet your cousin, the Cancellation Bear.

    Wow great repeat #s for BWOTR. OTR: 1.1, UAN: 0.7. NBC needs more Betty!
