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 baseball 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.

    Holy crap TVD. Best show on CW.

  • bree

    lol x factor

  • senor chang

    Nice for almost everything.
    Beauty is a bomb, and serious ouch at X-Factor.

  • Raykov

    Go TVD!!!

  • adanskii

    X factor fail.

  • Mrs Florrick

    The Big Bang Theory is a beast! Hope it stays above 5.0 in the finals regardless of the possible football inflation.

  • Julie

    Can it get any worse for “The X Factor”?? Let’s face it…. there’s only room for one of these shows and it looks like “The Voice” has emerged victorious.

  • Tom

    wow Xfactor.

    Great numbers for TVD, Beauty and the Beast is wasted with that lead in.

  • Jay

    Ouch Xfactor!! Flop factor! Britney should give her 15 mil. back.

  • Michael

    X Factor has already been renewed, but Fox simply can’t be pleased with these results?!

  • bluejay72

    Don’t tell me that The X Factor is pre-recorded again. Lol!
    What alibis do X Factor fans have this time???

  • Greg

    Wow, that was awful for The X Factor. CMA stole some of its audience and The Voice certainly will next week.

  • KS

    Surprised that Arrow is falling and TVD’s raising.

  • Martha

    Last night’s POI was awesome as usual .. and funny too! :)

  • taylor

    Damn X-Factor!

    VD is a beast.

  • Mrs Florrick

    Beauty and the Beast is definitely in trouble now considering it has such a strong lead in. Following a highly rated show isn’t always a blessing especially if your numbers don’t really match it.

  • John A

    BATB should move to friday in Nikita slot. Its bound to do better anyway.

  • Jess

    Yea yea yea Vampire Diaries!!!!!!! HOD is still the little engine that could!
