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.

    Revolution rulzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Last season Revenge was the best 10 pm show and hit 3+ rating only once. And this season 10 pm is even bigger rating disaster.

  • Tony JJ

    OUCH! ABC is in trouble on Mondays big time!

    CBS is in trouble too. H50 is down on the ground and can’t get up. Partners is dead. Mike and Molly is breathing, but not walking.

    NBC is in great shape, but Revolution needs to stop dropping and can The Voice hold these ratings now that the blind auditions are over?

    iHeartRadio did good for the CW, but let’s hope it stays at least a .6 when the Chicago affiliate gets factored in.

  • Anthony

    Nooo, Partners was so good last night.

    Mob Doctor is done.

  • ZmaX

    Got excited about the CW’s .7 until i saw it may be inflated due to the Chicago CW affiliate airing the Bears game.

    It’ll be an exciting to see how the CW does this season.

  • melbye

    So how many hours until Mob Doctor cancellation

  • Dude

    jesus christ dwts. the more i think about it the more hilarious it gets though.

    h50 still a disaster, castle will probably get adjusted down anyway (to a series low maybe?)

  • fringewillget5seasons

    Partners has nothing doing. Massive sinkhole in the lineup. HF0 still way down – under a 2.0?

    Really makes you worry about the broadcast #s for next year!

    Revolution is dropping but still very strong for NBC.

  • Chmarin

    Dancing With The Stars number FOUR in the 8pm hour. Take a second for *THAT* to sink in. Wow.

  • dantas

    Yay, Revolution!

    Crap, Partners!! Last night’s episode was way better than the premiere… Too bad.

    Hawaii Five-0 will be adjusted down. It may fall and hit a 1.3 before the season ends.

  • Jenn

    What is going on at 10:00 pm? Is Revolution the only show on any network that has gotten over a 3 since last Monday? All the 10 pm shows seem to be down.


    Revolution is the BEST show on Monday nights!!!

  • Wowza

    DWTS – 2.0 tonight – 1.7 tomorrow. Wow. Just…. wow…. canceled? last cycle? One a year? All of the above?

    Revolution – watched pilot and hated it. But this show is BEAST for NBC. Beast….. Sorry haters.

    The Voice. Last round of blind auditions measn it will start to drop in the ratings starting, if not tomorrow, next week, all the way down to a 3.0 in the next few weeks.

    X Factor will start rising soon, the auditions are the weakest part of that show, everyone knows and agrees on that much.

    Also, Bones will stabilize here and be okay for another season – definitely .

    The Mob Doctor will be cancelled today, or tomorrow.

    Partners is next.

    I don’t watch it, but Castle is besting – really. DWTS is falling while it gets the same old numbers. Nice feat for scripted.

  • CrimTV

    It looks like Revolution is beginning to stable out, just falling 2 tenths from last week, compared to 7 tenths the week before!

  • omabin


    – Seriously worried about Five-0.
    – Revolution is doing way better than I expected to do. It’s already the third week and the retetion was very good from last week to this week.
    – Mob Doctor is just embarassing and Bones is still holding up reasonably
    – Most importantly… DWTS needs to be canceled. I don’t know what they can do to their schedule but there should be no spring edition whatsoever, that is just awful. Last Resort is getting better results against big bang theory. This means that the entire ABC situation will become very hard to predict, as if DWTS is gone, that’s 3 additional hours right there. If they stick with DWTS (colossal mistake) then most of its dramas are in trouble, strating with Castle which I don’t see as being part of next’s fall schedule (likely kept for a final season as schedule replacement a la BoP)

  • John_M

    Who is watching Revolution, and more importantly, why are they watching it???

    Eric Kripke
    Giancarlo Esposito
    Excellent Guest Stars
    Genre TV deserves a shot for as long as I can give it to them

    Not that any of that matters since I lack a nielsen box
    But I watched Last Resort too – was quite good – Andre Braugher is a force

  • Tony JJ

    and I expect The Mob Doctor to be pulled today. and possibly Partners?

  • Lisa

    Really, why do people crow about being first to post as if it’s some wonderful accomplishment? Especially when they say nothing besides the ridiculous “first” that no one else cares about?

    Well, at least NBC should be happy with the night. Weak for Castle and DWTS… Partners and Mob Doctor need to get pulled soon.

  • Buzzcock

    For a show on its 8th season, Bones’ rating is very respectable!

  • Josh

    Half Hours

    NBC – Revolution
    Viewers: 9.07 million (#2), A18-49: 3.5/ 9

    NBC – Revolution
    Viewers: 7.74 million (#2), A18-49: 2.9/ 8

    This show really better be lucky for the The Voice as a lead in.

  • J.G.

    Mob Doctor cancelation announcement tonight, Partners announcement Wednesday I bet. DWTS needs a serious revamp
