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


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.

    Glass House was actually pretty great last night, and I’m saying that as a huge fan of Big Brother (live feeds and all). CBS does a god awful job of editing, and they screwed up their editing on Sunday’s episode. The Willie incident last 4 hours and he did way more than chest bump Joe, which I thought was just ridiculous. They made it seem like he touched Joe and got evicted, which based solely editing, Jordon did more to Russel in season 11 yet didn’t get in any trouble.

    Big Brother is still my favourite game, but production is ruining the game itself. They’re throwing stupid twists left and right for no reason other than shock factor, and they totally screwed Dan and Britney’s teams because of two ridiculous decisions (the first being to get rid of someone early on for no reason, and the second for getting rid of Willie when he was provoked to no end).

    Glass House was pretty entertaining last night. However despite all the strategies they talk about (and they’re actually sensible strategies), in the end all this game is is a popularity contest. It’s like… who cares who’s in limbo, we already know either Gene, Kevin or Steph are going to win the whole thing. If Glass House made some more Big Brother -related changes, they could easily be a MUCH better show than Big Brother based one production.

    Also, on a somewhat unrelated note (but not really), I LOVE Masterchef. They’re bringing some really cool new ideas this season that work really well (that tag challenge was AWESOME, and I loved seeing everyone back getting to compete to return, even though I thought it was unfair for Ryan because everyone there loved Josh).

    So glad the “flavor elevator” Ryan who is stuck on the basement floor didn’t come back as well as irritating Tali! I would have preferred Cowboy Mike but Josh is fine on Masterchef.

    And thank God KImmmie is gone on Hells Kitchen!

    More scary then who watches some of this crap, but WTH creates it and thinks it’s a good idea?

    Yay for the Gordon Ramsey shows, especially Master Chef.

    @Jeff (Canada):

    I know! It’s almost as if cancelling your third-highest rated entertainment show isn’t a good strategy.

  • RG-X

    Gordon! Gordon! Gordon!

    The Gordon Ramsey Network is growing! Can’t get enough of Ramsey putting arrogant know-it-alls in their place.

    More people need Humble pie!

  • Networkman

    @Kissan, Smart decision on behalf of ABC making the switch within their Wednesday comedy lineup. The Neighbors seem like a show that should be aired during the 8pm family hour. And it being sandwiched in between the two top rated comedies on the network should bode well. Also ABC must of felt they had to make the 9pm hour stronger as well. Now the network can begin showing Suburgatory repeats after Modern Family now until the fall premiere. Hopefully the cast won’t delay production so that the night will be competitive during premiere week.

    633 million viewers for Hell’s Kitchen! What a beast!!!

    Why don’t people like The Glass House?! It’s awesome!
