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.

  • Wowza

    Monday is NBCs previous Thursday night of hits. Sunday is huge, too for them. Go NBC… really and seriously…. let them have some time in the light.
    Predictions – FOX and NBC fight for number one for the end of the season…. yeah… said it.

  • Tim

    Castle at least didn’t drop after the lead in. Bad numbers for DWTS, ABC has to consider ending it :(
    H50 has never been a hit, numbers this season are not a surprise. The only reason it survived so long it was because NBC had zero competiton and the comedy block was inflated because of Asthon last season.CBS should move The Mentalist to Mondays. Those numbers for CBS Mondays are terrible.
    Happy for Revolution. A 3.2 is still very good and totally crashes the competition.

  • John_M

    Revolution will keep falling. It’s simply not a good show.
    The argument that the quality of a show will equate to good or bad ratings has been proven false time and time again…

  • Trekker26

    My wife and I have really been enjoying Revolution. I’m looking forward to next week’s episode.

  • The Old Woman

    The audience for castle is so old! It fits the show though. It’s so bloody boring and the main point of interest seems to be the romance between a fat Castle and a boring Beckett.

    I still don’t find revolution interesting, but good for NBC. They have got Mondays in the bag.

    CBS comedies, still boring, but still doing excellent!

  • Eridapo

    DWTS. What a collapse…. ABC must be wondering what happen, and if they should renew the show.

    It is time to see what else they can substitute for this show.

    I would also be concerned about the Bachelor come spring.

    Castle considering the collapse of DTWS maintain is workman performance with Spring like numbers.

  • John_M

    Monday is NBCs previous Thursday night of hits

    As long as you don’t take into account

    1. More money on Thursday night advertising
    2. 6 shows versus 2
    3. Reality shows have shorter shelf lives (and no syndication value?)

  • Robert

    See this is why i say don’t count out 666 yet not many shows get over 2.1 one anymore at 10pm. If it can stable on these numbers it will be here to stay. Don’t forget the massive NFL competition on sunday night

  • Tony ^_^

    I’m sorry FOX… But “The Mob Doctor”… Has passed away. Time to cancel it before it falls below a 1.0 and every one laughs at you…

    “Dancing With the Stars” at a 2.0?? I wonder what tonight’s episode will earn… Less than 2.0… A 1.7 maybe?

  • NCJeff

    @Brian J
    >> 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. <<

    Where would they get them? IF NBC had strong comedies they'd be putting them on Thursday to shore up that lineup.

  • Brian J


    I’m kind of puzzled that CBS didn’t buy more comedies last season. Considering how much it has struggled to launch them the past few seasons and how old most of its shows are, but how strong its current hits still are, why so few comedies? Were the pilots just that bad?

    Were I in charge of CBS, I’d have shipped “NCIS: LA” off to Fridays at 8:00, where it would at worst do respectably, and then put comedies after the original “NCIS,” even with how many are there now. I might have even expanded to two full hours on Thursday, even if it would have been hugely risky to put a rookie like “2BG” there. If at least one of these new shows worked, it could have been used as an anchor on Thursdays at 9:00.

  • Albert

    DWTS need to be a summer show.

  • DW

    outside of football there is really nothing on monday night. no reason to cancel dancing with the stars. its cheap to produce just cut it back to the second part of the year where your not up against football.

  • badman

    poor H5O and poor castle…!! it looks like revolution really damaged them.. of course abc has to blame DWTS too for this!!
    i still don’t believe H5O will end this year, syndication will save it, but i am really worried for castle this year!

  • Wowza

    For the record – The Voiceis doing great, but “riding high” on monday – no. No not at all. Ew. No.

    Idol is the only show in recent history “that was riding high” A 4.5 is NOT riding high bud..

  • CrimTV


    ABC has How to live With Your Parents and Family Tools in the wings, plus Zero Hour and Red Widow. I want How To Live With Your Parents to replace The Neighbors if cancelled in 2013 and perhaps one of the dramas will replace Scandal or PP.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Mike – No, last year House was in The Mob Doctor’s timeslot.

  • John_M

    10 PM comedies?

    NBC tried that already.

  • Sarah

    Bones :( But hopefully it will be adjusted up.

  • thesnowleopard

    So, are “Such-and-such mediocre-rating/been-on-for-a-whopping-three-episodes-and-still-dropping show is a beast” and “Anybody who disses my show is a hater” going to be the new annoying buzz phrases for rabid fanboys this season? ‘Cause I’m already sick of them.

    A whole lot of people under 50 must be watching Two Broke Girls and Revolution for them to be getting over a 3.0 with less than ten million viewers, as opposed to DWTS and Castle, which both skew pretty old. Admittedly, DWTS and Castle are both past their glory days, but even so.

    Not quite sure why people are crowing over Bones’ imminent demise when it’s getting over twice The Mob Doctor’s demo and almost twice the audience on the same network, though I’ll agree that TMD is indisputably a dead show walking.
