You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.

Definitions: 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.

  • Richard castle

    supernatural deserves that 0.7 that was the worst episode ever.

    on a side note, good for animal practice

  • Steph

    Good for Criminal Minds =)

  • dantas

    Arrow & LA:SVU will be adjusted up.

  • UMGuy423

    The Neighbors is up. Looks like 1.9-2.0 is its floor, hopefully it can grow a little from there. It’s a great show.

  • victor hugo

    Drop in ratings for Arrow at least same numbers of viewers

  • Hmm

    At least Nashville did not fall….

  • Seth

    Watch out for The Neighbors!

  • Clarke

    YES! I am THRILLED that The Neighbors went up! I love the show and never thought it would survive. :)

    Also great for The Middle, another underrated show I love. Not so great for GWK though. Hopefully Whitney will be able to save the show.

  • jose Luis Venezuela

    good for Arrow

  • Oliver

    Guys With Kids isn’t looking much more promising than Animal Practice now.

    Arrow is down… but still doing great by CW standards. Back in fifth for The CW, though.

    Reports of the demise of Chicago Fire and Nashville are greatly overstated.

    The Neighbors is still performing better than everyone predicted.

  • marcos

    ABC did great. happy for nashville steady

  • Flare

    Yay for the Neighbors love it hope it survives

  • Bee

    YAYAYAY NASHVILLE HUNG IN THERE! last night’s ep was great w. another AMAZING duet. so i hope the show continues to catch on for people who dropped it after the 1st ep or were unsure about it.

  • Handbuck

    Yeahhh! Chicago fire!!!!

  • buttondiet

    Damn, I wanted Arrow to beat Animal Practice 3 weeks in a row.

  • F.

    I hope Modern Family gets adjusted up to 5.0.
