NOTE: All national ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

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.

    1.2 for The Glass House? ABC showed a promo everytime The Bachelorette went off to commercial, it was ridiculous. It didn’t even start until 10:04.

  • Baqinardo

    Any separate ratings for AGT?
    I’m sure 8:30-9 pm was a special preview.

  • John A

    Even the comedys are repeat badly for CBS. Lol at 90210

  • Bubu

    is this the first time ever that CBS got sub-1 ratings on a monday? me thinks so…

  • Andy

    YES!!! Glass House up!

    CBS comedies repeating terribly!

  • James D.

    ABC gave away so much regarding “The Glass House” during “The Bachelorette” that there was no reason to watch it. May see a slight dip in the ratings if the show didn’t start until 10:04 pm ET.

  • J.G.

    Glass House needed the uptick even though it’s terrible; I feel like the minute it goes under a 1 it’s ovah, no matter how far in the game it is.

  • Andy

    I hope Glass House is renewed ! So happy the numbers increased. I love Joy and Stephanie!

  • Sepen

    I’m sure The Glass House numbers will drop in the final ratings later on

  • SJ

    Wow, what is happening to CBS this summer?

  • Sepen

    They’re just waiting for Big Brother to start 9 more days

  • W

    It is a holiday week. I am sure many people are on vacation. The Glass House is doing terribly.

  • Taylor

    Glass House will be adjusted down. I hope it starts hitting sub-1.0 soon.

  • Billy

    Not all of CBS folks. The Big Bang Theory is the # 1 scripted show of the summer.

  • Oliver

    Glass House won’t be renewed, but I doubt they’ll pull the plug. Yet another ABC summer reality show flop.

    0.1/0 for 90210. Let’s hope it’s adjusted down.

    CBS reruns doing relatively badly. I wonder if they’re overexposing 2BG with double repeats.

  • disney rocks

    It would be great for 90210 to adjust down!

  • Billy

    CBS should be concerned with 2 Broke Girls anchoring the night next season. It is totally living off The Big Bang Theory lead in on Thursdays doing 60% higher ratings on Thursday than on Mondays. With Partners as its lead in next season, and Mike and Molly as its lead out that could be big trouble in the fall.

  • WoWza

    FOX is kind of a BEAST. Hotel Hell will do awesome come Aug. Big hit there – original idea with proven talent (Ramsey).

    Also, AGT probably tied last week stop lying….. get your facts straight please. 8:30 – (;00 was not really the show, just filler. This is important because live portion (the first live portion) started 30 minutes later.

  • Psac

    Agreed on AGT 8:30-9, a preview with a countdown clock will drive away viewers until the “real” show begins. Interesting to see the 9-11 numbers separate.

  • DenverDean

    CBS needs to fortify its summer line-up with some fresh product – especially since many of its shows are already popular syndication staples (comedy and drama). Perhaps, Unforgettable will be a start of more to give some of shows a breather.
