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.

    Hahaha DWTS that’s what they get for bringing back palin (lowercase intended)! Where are all the fans who said that H-5-0 was gonna rebound?

  • MoHasanie

    Fantastic ratings for The Voice. Its not even falling despite the competition.
    The Revolution keeps falling, and although a 3.2 is still excellent, its half hours of 3.5/2.9 are very worrying.

    DWTS is doing bad now. A 2.0 is bad at any hour except 10pm. This show was huge before, and now its one of the lowest rated shows of the night.
    Castle will fall with that bad lead in, but its doing quite well with its bad lead in.

    HIMYM is down. I wasn’t expecting it to fall so fast. The awful partners must be bringing it down.
    2 Broke girls was funny yesterday, but even it is falling quickly. Could these shows fall to high 2’s in the spring?
    Hawaii 5-0 rose, but is still doing bad.

    Bones is still surviving the competition.

  • KarenM

    DWTS needs new blood. Either new judges or new dancers because I could care less about the “All Stars.”

  • Alexa

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

    I’m watching it because it’s an interesting premise and I like what I’ve seen so far. In other words, it’s entertained me. I don’t understand the hate for this show by some.

  • John_M

    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?

    How much tv in the UK is government supported as opposed to advertising supported?

    18-49 viewers, numbers, still carry the day

  • Ram510

    Wow at DWTS dropping half a point. ABC may have to come up with a whole new Monday line up next fall

    Happy Partners is still falling. I want Rules of Engagaement back NOW!

    As for 10pm, like i said maybe the new normal is low 2’s high 1’s

  • John A

    Mob Doctor and Partners surely are dead this week. Revolution doing well in fairness.

  • Brian J

    It would have been nice to see “Revolution” increase with total viewers, but assuming the A18-49 number doesn’t change, NBC has to be very, very happy. (Certainly, if it increases, they will be over the moon.)

    As for “TV,” holy crap must NBC be thrilled. It’s downs from its highs last season, but it’s beating everything else it’s up against by solid if not huge margins. Perhaps others are right and it will drop once the live auditions are over, but it’s definitely doing very, very well right now.

    I’d like to say once again that NBC should seriously consider putting up at least one if not two comedies on Mondays after “TV.” The competition is strong but not that severe. CBS is down, but even if it’s not out, it’s vulnerable. Fox looks to be irrelevant, and ABC only slightly more relevant. Why waste another comedy on Thursdays right now? Let it grow on Mondays before moving it, or even leave it there and try to establish a comedy block on the night.

    Also, once “TV” is done for the fall, rerun “Revolution” several times to bring in new viewers. Try to get it to at least 10 million viewers on a regular basis in the spring and at least a 3.5 in the demo.

  • battye

    Very good 18-34 numbers for NBC too.

  • Samunto

    Ouch at DWTS, even in total viewers it’s on level with The Voice! It’ll be averaging a 1.3 in December! Terrible ratings drops for ABC & CBS. H5-0 is just dead!
    Revolution seems to be stabilizing. A 0.2 drop is minimal.

    Networks are so patient this season, why is TMD still on the air?

  • KS

    I didn’t like Revolution episode at all.

  • CrimTV


    All channels in the UK apart from a few (BBC has no adverts because it is government supported) are supported by ad revenue!

  • Petar Ivanov

    I think NBC must think where they can move RVN THIS season. I mean in 8 or 9 pm. Unfortunately NBC are without Once upon a time like ABC have for Revenge so may be as Eridapo said before couple of days they can try with RVN in 8 like lead-in in tuesday, wed or thur. Its risky but still better than 10 pm wich in the spring will kill all the momentum that show have.

  • John_M

    Networks are so patient this season, why is TMD still on the air?

    I like how 3 episodes is ‘patient’

    Baseball playoffs

  • John A

    Crazy amount of comments for monday shows.

  • Holly


    Does anyone under 40 watch CBS anymore?

    More than watched ABC last night ;)

  • Gamer101

    Wow The Voice smashing!

  • Potato

    Looks the whole ten hour was down a little this week(Hawaii five o up compared to last week but still lower than usual.) Does this mean Revolution has found its floor?

  • Observer

    That half hour drop for Revolution is worrisome. Each week its number mirrors what the previous weeks second half has done.

  • alexis

    I really wish Last Resort was on NBC and took Revolution’s timeslot
