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.

    What if the episode format had been normal?

    Hard to say how much I would’ve liked it, but I certainly would’ve liked it more. The jerky, murky camera was really getting to me.

    CHICAGO FIRE looking good right now.

  • ann

    Happy for Chicago Fire. Still hanging in there.

    Leno 1.3
    Wow. Oh…Bama

  • Michelle drake

    Arrow really surprised me with how well I to done compared to other Superhero shows. Hope it continues to attach an audience. Last Resort is keeping me interested so far and I would like to see it succeed as well. And Chicago Fire is definitely getting better, although cliched,

    All those people whining about SPN’s episode, have you EVER watched any shaky-cam/found footage horror movies? The episode would have been a critical darling and would have been a huge hit like the boring Paranormal Activity movies, if it was done as a movie! For SPN’s standards it was below-par, but compared to movies, it was better than 95% of the genre!

    Arrow…the special treat for brain damaged teenaged boys…
