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.

    Horrible for everyone not NBC. CBS is so down from years past. Even last year. And dwts is done

  • Tom

    Will MD even air next week’s episode?

    Or are they just waiting for CBS to announce Partners’ death tomorrow?

    And ABC is still ugly. The Voice is just eating their lunch.

  • Hubert

    I feel really bad for 2BG. the show would blossom after TBBT, and yet it struggles in here.

  • Kate

    Bones is dead. Fox won’t renew. Lmao. 2.1 go away.

  • DryedMangoez

    I thought last night’s Revolution was pretty underwhelming so next week might see a bigger drop. But I think if you’re going to give up on the show, you’re going to do it after this week.

    Nonetheless, NBC Monday is holding up well so far.

  • Wowza

    DWTS skews Old. Very old. But, I would argue, maybe, if it does get renewed, even going into likely 1.7- 1.8 tonight, my argument would be those 12.5 million viewers who are old can get some advertising…. I truly think this is the case if it comes back.

  • Pablo

    Perhaps some Fox exec is saying “Maybe we should have spent a little more money and bought a second thirteen of Terra Nova.”

  • Adam

    That’s good for Hawaii because out of all the other shows apart from The Voice it went up

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Bad news for ABC,CBS,FOX?
    NBC dominates again?

  • Agnes

    The Voice is a beast!

    H50 got a prelim 1.9 last week before adjusting down, did it not?

  • Sammy01

    Seriously Fox pull Mob Doctor already, Bones is actually doing well for them amid all these low numbers, would help if it had something remotely watched after it. Hope Bones gets adjusted up.

  • NCJeff

    Is this the year CBS looses its Monday night dominance? Would blame the writing on HIMYM for it’s fall but everything is down on Mondays. Maybe TAAHM brought more viewers to Monday night overall.

    Revolution held up better than I thought. Maybe it’ll get adjusted down. Guess I’m in the hater camp on that show. Nice to see NBC do well but does it have to be with show that’s so frustrating to watch?

  • Andrea

    Castle is doing fine, espeically compared to how much DWTS is down. It’s the most watched 10pm show on ABC and it has very similar, if not better ratings than everything else too. Of all of ABC’s 10pm shows it’s the least in trouble.

    Across the board 10pm shows are just down in general.

    DWTS needs some help…I highly doubt ABC will drop it, but it needs something….

  • KarenM

    Does anyone under 40 watch CBS anymore?

  • John_M

    Perhaps some Fox exec is saying “Maybe we should have spent a little more money and bought a second thirteen of Terra Nova.”

    More likely some Fox Executive is talking to his development people and saying ‘what made you think this was a good idea AND that jordana spiro could carry a drama, haven’t you SEEN My Boys (I liked My boys, it was funny but spiro is limited, even in comedy)

  • Guardian Owl

  • Nick

    This is what I don’t get in the UK if you have more vewers in millions it is a good thing, but how come people are saying dwts is flopping, isn’t it good it’s making 12 million viewers?

  • Wowza

    Bones – will be renewed. For one mopre season. Why? Because they don’t have much else…..

    Glee will be back, Bones will come back. As long as the following gets a 2.5 or higher on average, which I suspect it will, it will be back. Hopefullly, The Following is a 3.0 show for FOX, I think it will be. They are saving it (smartly) for Idol .
