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.

    is this bad for castle right???………………….u.u

  • Tony ^_^

    I thought FOX would have cancelled “Mob Doctor” by now. Maybe they’re waiting to see if its adjusted up. Lol… xD Or they’re trying to re-configure their schedule to find something to replace “Mob Doctor”…

  • Nick

    Ouch for ABC.
    Ouch for CBS.
    Ouch for Fox. (I predicted it right :-) )
    Everyone else did OK. Revolution did very nicely, as did the Voice and the music special.

    :-( that Castle can’t do better. 2BG and Mike & Molly too.

    Or they’re in no hurry given the three weeks of baseball on Monday coming up.

    @Bill Gorman

    I will take your word on it as I don’t work in TV or advertising. I certainly claim no expertise in the televison industry’s logic. :) I just read the articles and data charts because they’re interesting and I enjoy televison. Still, even if the change in demo realities and viewers’ habits in how they watch TV doesn’t have any influence today, it does seem like there’s a change developing. If so, I hope it doesn’t catch the industry off guard like the changes in print media did a few years ago.

    ESPN’s Monday-night NFL game (Chicago at Dallas) got 16 million viewers, about 33% more viewers than any other broadcast or cable show for the night.

    The only reason the NFL Network’s Thursday-night NFL telecast isn’t he most-watched show on either cable or broadcast is that NFLN is in far fewer homes than ESPN.

    Otherwise, NFL games would be the most-watched prime-time program three nights a week.

    Football is red-hot!

  • Fabian

    Don’t know why people hate NBC and Revolution. Revolution is a great show and NBC Rocks.

  • Colin

    Idk why no one likes Mob Doctor, it’s so good!

  • Linda E.

    @Bill Gorman: Sorry, forgot to say ‘please’. Now, thank you for your response regarding Live+7 numbers.

    I’m sure HF-0 will be fine til the syndication numbers are reached, though
    CBS would have to make a huge payout on Alex and Scott’s contracts, if it ends before seven seasons. Unless they all came to a mutual agreement.

  • jessie

    JJ A. dont forget to pay for the audience numbers too. 8.4 mill is a shame. you have spent a lot of money promoting Rev.

  • Ryan N

    The Voice is such a beast !
    I can totally see it being adjusted up later

  • Bookworm

    Oh Lord, Sweet Castle.ABC 10pm is just the floater hour; you can’t get big numbers but you can get shows that are steady. I really do hope Castle doesn’t sink any lower and at least maintain that all season.

  • Chazz

    No one gets paid out if a show doesn’t last seven seasons on their contract. Every show has that contract.

    The seven seasons is to keep them in place.

    Good God, the crazy propaganda that flies around here.

  • not a sock puppet

    The new PARTNERS episode was a bigger pile of crap than the pilot.
    Pull it quickly CBS!

  • donnie

    ABC is in trouble period!! I never watch ABC. Never will. I hate ABC

  • Linda E.

    @Chazz: Slight overreaction fella. Rein yourself in !!!

  • Chazz

    It’s crazy to think that actors are paid for shows after they are cancelled even if they had seven season contracts.

    Seriously, there is craziness here I’ve never imagined before.

  • KevinY

    Second episode of Partners was hysterical, I think it still has a chance for all 13 episodes. It only fell 12.5%, most DOA shows fall at least 20% in week two. And that was the funniest episode of Mike & Molly ever!


    @ KevinY

    Don’t kid yourself. Partners is DOA.

  • crystalabell

    I actually thought that Revolution was good and I hope that it can pick up regular views and last the season.
