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.

    @KJ Styles, Kitser: I agree. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve said that CBS should put H50 behind the NCIS power duo.

    @Dan S: Right on! I think the only reason people hate on RVN so much is because either they are among the fools who still hate JJ Abrams because of the way Lost ended (BTW, I enjoyed the ending immensely) or are jealous of Tracy Spiridakos for being prettier than them, so they slam on her acting even though nobody criticized Jen Lawrence for doing pretty much the same thing in The Hunger Games.

    Can we make 500 posts today? It’s entirely possible, friends! :D

  • Holly


    I’m assuming the networks know what the advertisers are paying and what demographic they are basing their rates on. If advertisers in general (rather than just a few here and there) were really changing their behavior, networks would quickly follow the money.

  • Nadine

    used to get a kick out of DWTS, but I gotta say I’m so happy that Bones beat it yesterday. Keep on truckin’ Bones.

  • Josh


    No it’s because the show sucks and it don’t know what direction it want’s to be. Tracy Spiridakos looks I won’t go there but her acting just not good.

  • Nadine

    Does anyone under 40 watch CBS anymore?

    Since they have more under-40 viewers than any other TV network, looks like they do. Come up out of that foxhole from time to time, Karen — you seem to say silly things a lot.

  • KJ Styles

    I’m 36 and I watch more shows on CBS than any other network, and have been that way for years.

  • Steph

    I’m 21 and a good 85% of the shows I watch are on CBS.

  • Chazz

    They are under 40 but less sophisticated, less intelligent and less affluent.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Last year CBS cancel how to be a gentelman with better than partners ratings. Just saying…..

  • Petar Ivanov

    ps I mean after 2 episodes.

  • Petar Ivanov

    CBS is fine. All their new shows are crap and most dramas are aging but still they have best dramas and sitcoms and best scripted shows. But need better sitcoms and dramas for next year.


    @ Nadine

    Well said, I’m just so amused anymore that CBS has more demo viewers but it has that “old folks home” syndrome.

  • Loren

    I think this is the last season for H50. I really have lost interest in the show myself.


    I’ve been a Bones man for 8 years now and agree, keep on truckin baby

    Revolution kicked ass last night.
    the only other thing i’m going to say about revolution is ” I heard it through the grapevine”, and if you don’t know the meaning behind what I just wrote I feel sorry for you, but you can always get caught up on hulu. I’m going to watch the third episode again on hulu myself.

    @Brian J
    CBS needs to move “NCIS: LA” to Fridays. It will probably lose something by making that move, but CBS would be up overall and could use “NCIS” to launch a new show or even two comedies.


  • Ultima

    @John M
    CBS will start Saturday Night SeC games at some point won’t they?

    No, they usually only have one primetime SEC game per year.

  • Jesse

    I’m sure that monsterous 0.7 for the CW is inflated. Bears game in Chicago.

  • Max


    You’re living in cloud cukoo-land if you really believe The Flopfactor’s ratinsg will rise for the bootcamp segment of the show (the traction is the oppostie in the UK). The Voice battle rounds (with the added new twists) & new face-offs won’t drop as much as you think infact I predict they’ll stay more or less where they currently are into the lives.
