As a result, the CBS numbers may be a bit inflate from 8-9PM and subject to more than typical adjustments in the finals.

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    I don’t get why the networks just don’t go into repeat mode tonight and maybe tomorrow. There are millions without power on the east coast right now and that includes two very large TV markets in New York and Philly.

    I’m sure Fox is worried about the Halloween themed episodes they have tonight so that’s why they will run them. Is it really going to hurt them to show repeats and be one episode behind for the new year?

  • Hmm

    I don’t think the small cut ins from the news will count as a total pre-empted show, just the ones where the show was not aired all due to news coverage.

    I’m personally hoping, as a huge Castle fan, that even if it does drop a lot it stays steady with how it’s been doing. That would be wonderful with so many other things going on last night.

  • Valerie

    @Castlefan People are not hating on Castle, they are just being realistic.

  • Steven

    Im still on the fence about Revolution. I want to like it. I keep watching it waiting for it to pick up or for something more to happen. I still much prefer Last Resort as my new show for this season yet Sadly I’m not sure it will last. Maybe thats why I’m still watching Revolution. Anybody else in the same boat as me.

  • CC

    Where is The Walking Dead ratings?

  • Ram510

    Wow CBS and CW really missed out with ABC and NBC at highs last night it seems as though people really wanted to watch tv.

  • Sparky

    Those numbers are all going down. Every network in the tri-state area was local news covering Sandy!!

  • steve

    @roosterhead the voice needs to be over by xmas I don’t think NBC could of pushed it back same with fox and the x factor

  • Mike

    Good for Revolution !
    The show is getting better each week.

  • Percysowner

    Add another excuse to the Bingo Card!

    Hurricane Sandy hurt my show’s ratings!

    I’m not sure it’s an excuse when there really are massive preemptions and millions of people can’t watch a show. I know this week will count in the totals, but it really will be an anomaly. The Voice, Revolution, DWTS and Castel will probably go down, but they may go up because people wanted to watch new programing if they were sick of watching the storm. Basically, I’m going to take this week as an outlier with little or no predictive value.

    these numbers are a joke. Castle was preempted in New York, Baltimore and Boston and power went out. Even the final numbers will be a joke.

  • Highness

    Revolution is amazing, I’m very happy that it’s doing so well.

  • steve

    @alffan the voice needs to be over by christmas I don’t think there’s anyway NBC could push the voce back for a week

  • Joe

    wow go Castle

  • USAmerica1st

    Now we have XFactor going up against The Voice in rerun and getting shredded. XFactor is all over the place and consequently, no place. Fox should find a home for it and stay there.

  • Jason

    @CastleFan: Why are you people hating on Castle? Let us celebrate. Season high for Castle. The episode was amazing. Stop the hate.

    ^^^ Let us celebrate inflated numbers? These aren’t actual numbers for Castle, as has been mentioned several times. Pay attention.

  • Nick

    in Baltimore WBAL aired NBC’s primetime on their sub-channel, 11.2. WMAR aired it’s ABC primetime on their subchannel 2.2. FOX 45 did not air X-Factor, WJZ 13 did not air primetime shows at all..just wall to wall Sandy coverage!

  • RG-X

    Revolution STILL over 3.0 considering last nites storm- it probably would have at least matched last weeks numbers – considering over 40 million people were affected last nite.

    The Voice was UP?! Wow NBC Execs’ must be doing cartwheels in the corridors of their offices today.
