NBC was the number one network in adults 18-49 while CBS was on top with total viewers.

On NBC, The Voice, with a 3.7 adults 18-49 rating was way down from last Tuesday's 4.6 rating.  But, it was airing out of pattern on a new night--it doesn't usually air Wednesdays, but due to the election it did. Despite the new day dip, it boosted Chicago Fire by 27% to a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating versus last week's 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Voice also propelled NBC to its first in-season Wednesday win in 18-49 with non-sports programming since Christmas Eve 2008.

On FOX, X Factor earned a 2.6, down a tenth from last week's 2.7 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, The Middle scored a 2.8, up two tenths  from its last original's 2.6 adults 18-4 rating.  The Neighbors earned a 2.1, also up two tenths  from last week's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Modern Family notched a 4.7, way up from last week's 4.2 adults 18-49 rating. Suburgatory earned a 2.9, half a full ratings point up from last week's 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. Nashville garnered a 2.0, up two tenths from last week's series low 1.8 18-49 rating.

On CBS, Survivor: Philippines scored a  2.7, up two tenths from last week's 2.5 adults 18-49 rating. Criminal Minds garnered a 3.0, up a tenth from last week's 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. CSI earned 2.3, down a tenth from last week's 2.4 adults 18-49 rating.

On the CW, Arrow scored a 1.3, up three tenths from last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and it's best-since-premiere rating. Supernatural earned an 1.0, up two tenths from last week's 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.

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.

  • Bretta

    X-factor with Britney is not match up for the Voice and Xtina.. But I don’t think wednesday hurted the voice.. When it gets the point of people calling in to pick a winner.. that when it goes down and becomes less interesting on the Voice…

    Wow, The CW really got a new hit (for their network) with Arrow! It rose 0,3 from last weeks rating and didn’t go below a 1,0 since its premiere. And I’m optimistic it’ll be able to stay at this level of numbers.

    @bretta

    the voice’s success can hardly be credited to christina. her musical career is in ruins right now– her single peaked at #34

    people watch for the show (and maybe levine), not her
