Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2012 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

Definitions:

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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    yikes nikita1

  • Oliver

    Ooof, people were premature calling the revival of TGIF.

  • Felipe Nikita

    Nikita

  • Julianna

    at least a 0.3 for Nikita.

  • Spencer

    They could give Grimm an actual lead in besides repeats. Even a reality show would be better.
    I’m not surprised that ABC’s multi-cams are falling because they are both dreadful.

  • samu

    Yes GRIMM! Still strong!

  • Kenny

    I like Nikita but it’s time to throw in the towel.

  • Thomas Jane

    Eww Nikita again sucks

  • danny94

    Dam Nikita get back to a 0.5.

  • F.

    Cancel Nikita already.

  • Jenny

    Well see if Malibu Country adjust up in the finals come Monday.

  • Oliver

    Guys With Kids repeats better than Go On despite doing significantly worse in their normal timeslots.

    Why do people doubt that old-skewing multicams repeat better than single cam shows?

  • s0303

    totally called that fall for lms and mc…i read sooo many negative things about the premieres…i doubt if they are done falling…both will probably be in trouble by the end of the season…

    go grimm…i think it’s doing better than last year…really good for undercover boss also…

  • Timmy G

    There goes the potential for TGIF. Ah well, I guess the 90’s will have to stay a memory for now.

  • kat

    The next new ep of Nikita will be back at the earlier time slot. I’m by no means expecting miracles, but I will be interested to see if it helps at all.

  • Felix

    Damn, Nikita! Why aren’t people watching this show?
    I hope the numbers improve a bit when it moves back to 8/7c with the next episode.

  • Justin121

    Great for Boss, GGrimm, Shark Tank.

    OK for ABC comedies, Fringe, Blue Bloods.

    Is America’s Next Top Model airing its second cycle in the spring or summer?

  • jess

    LMS is terrible. People checked it out and then tuned it out this week.

  • Greg

    That’s more in terms with what I had in mind for the comedy block. Still, that’s pretty decent, I’d say.

    Even with Undercover Boss’ astounding growth, CSI: NY managed to fall. That’s weird.

  • senor chang

    That’s a seriously significant uptick in viewers from the Go On repeat (1.4 million) to the Guys With Kids repeat (2.1 million). Still excellent for Grimm.

    If the ABC comedies stabilize here, they’ll be fine, but they don’t have much more room to fall. Shark Tank still fantastic.

    Why in the world did Undercover Boss, Kitchen Nightmares, and ANTM jump so much? Were they just all pressure by the TGIF block premiere?
