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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    By the way TBBT repeat at 10 will beat h5o. TBS repeats at 10 are around 1.1-1.3 so on CBS will be at least 1.5-2.0!

    @John M
    What I find amazing is that Idol is still on the air when really it’s only produced one successful winner (Clarkson)

    Carrie Underwood? :roll:

    Of course, the reason it is still on the air is because of its insanely good ratings over the past decade.

  • Mike

    NBC. :). I love to see them on top on Mondays. Revolution numbers are very good for the 3rd week. I read it was one of the strongest episodes so far.
    CBS needs to fix things soon because it doesn’t take much to go to last place. The way I see it, HIMYM, 2 BG and M&M are doing good. They are not TBBT, but numbers are good. CBS has 2 problems on Mondays, Partners and Hawaii 50. A CBS 10 pm Monday drama getting those numbers is pathetic.

  • Mike

    oh no will hawaii five o be canceled with those numbers

  • Ultima

    NBC owns Monday nights

    Have they managed to beat ESPN yet this season?

    The ratings are incredible for this season

    The auditions are down 27% from last season.

    @Linda E, Live+7 ratings for Sept 24 episodes out in two weeks.

  • Ultima

    oh no will hawaii five o be canceled with those numbers

    It will be renewed for next season. The season after that, well that depends on how it does relative to the other Friday/Sunday shows (where it will likely be airing).

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    @Beckstle, whatever the time delay, relative ratings change little, and neither do show prospects.

  • Joseph

    Looks like ESPN’s NFL game probably topped the night in total viewers and key demographics, considering the poor showing by broadcast networks last night (October 2nd).

  • Greg

    The Dallas/Bears game (Monday night football on espn) took away a lot of viewers from Partners at 7:30 since the game started at 7:30. Partners still has hope, considering.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    @Greg, Fan Excuse Bingo. Partners is d-e-a-d.

  • Kavyn

    Last night’s Revolution was one of the better episodes, I could see it being stable next week or maybe dropping only a tenth.

    I’m liking the show mostly for the Neville/Danny side of the story. Charlie’s growing on me but I still find her annoying. The blonde and fat dude I also find to be totally useless to the story, so I hope they pick it up for those guys soon.

  • carla

    I watched my recording of Treme from Sunday, it was great.

    Then tuned to Revolution. I’m not sure it will hold my attention for a whole season, too many jumbled themes and plotlines without the compelling performances needed to hold my interest.

    But NBC has to be over the moon at Revolution’s success in a tough slot.

    Fox has to be kicking itself for cancelling Terra Nova, which was infinitely better than Mob Doctor. What a bunch of maroons.

  • iMember

    First full season orders of the season

    NBC just gave a full season to Revolution, Go On, and The New Normal!

    I’m a happy camper.

  • dgh

    Only one show has ever sucked me in with just a few episodes and never let go and that title goes to LOST. Revolution(while isn’t even in the same leauge as lost but then again what is?)is getting my attention quickly even with the whiny girl and hopefully we get more character building stories.

  • Justin121

    Can we stop abbreviating The Voice as TV? It’s not only confusing but unnecessary when you’re typing huge paragraphs and then can’t be bothered with a few extra letters.


    This also goes for The Mentalist, The Middle, The Neighbors, or pretty much any show with two letter abbrevation. They call Go On, “GO”. Ugh.

  • Lisa

    What no Hart of Dixie ratings prediction?


    More surprising that DWTS lost to Bones. FOX needs to cancel Mob Doctor, like this week. ABC is turning into the new NBC, LoL

  • Toni

    Revolution got a full season order! Thank you NBC, for once!


    @John M. Kelly Clarkson is not the only star that American Idol has produced, are you kidding me?? Jennifer Hudson, Katharine McPhee, Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert, Phillip Phillips (who currently has a hit single), Scotty McCrerry, R&B star Fantasia, Clay Aiken, Jordin Sparks, Kellie Pickler.. An of course Carrie Underwood… American Idol has produced a Platnium selling artist every season (except one)
