Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2012 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

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

Definitions:

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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    Made in Jersey won’t last long; not sure what it will be replaced with but it will dip below a 1.0 next week. They should just slide CSI:NY back to 9PM

  • Baqinardo

    Grimm won the night.
    OMG!

  • CrimTV

    just looking at these numbers just shows that Friday nights ratings are dismal!

  • robin

    Made in jersey lol

  • Penny

    Wow at MIJ

  • Matt

    wow. thats HORRIBLE for Blue Bloods in viewers…usually gets 10-11 million

  • Dinaminjo

    Question of the day, just how low are CBS expectation for MiJ when they put it on friday?!

  • Melanie

    Grimm!!

  • Matt

    CBS should scrap all friday shows and just repeat the comedies…theyd get 2.0+

  • forg

    Disastrous for Made in Jersey.

    Good for Shark Tank and Grimm

  • SarahL

    Yay, Grimm! I really am surprised that it came back so strong. It even beat Shark Tank. I didn’t even know that a new episode was on, I only caught it by accident. Despite all the criticism, NBC’s early airings and schedule to grow its audience must have paid off.

  • tvd

    Grimm is so stable no matter what night it is on!

  • Tony ^_^

    “Fringe” got exactly what I predicted! I’m getting better at this “Guess the Ratings!” thing. Lol… :D

  • Dennis

    YESSS GO GRIMM!!! :)))

    FRINGE UP FROM LAST SEASON FINALE TOO :)

  • Ron

    oh well. There goes CBS’ hopes of any spinoffs…Made in Long Island and Made in Delaware

  • Observer

    Grimm wins the night! Go little show, go!!!!!!!!!

  • SJ

    Yikes, 1.1 is lower than I expected for Jersey. Also, Blue Bloods under 10 million for the first time. :/ I know it doesn’t matter, but still…

  • omabin

    Remarks:
    – Made in Jersey is a flop
    – Last Resort repeated well. Hopefully it gives it some help next week Thursday
    – Blue Bloods hold out ok, it should have no problems getting a second season
    – Fringe did what expected but doesn’t actually matter
    – I was hoping for a bit higher for Grimm, but it’s still okay. Hopefully it is adjusted up in the finals

  • danny94

    nice ratings for Grimm,

  • Petar Ivanov

    Made In Jersey is so much DEAD! This is even not DOA(DOA is better than this) is shoking ratings for CBS! The Giftet Man was 1.7 is just CBS nightmare.
