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.


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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Nikita’s first season is definitely better than Arrow’s first season. But Nikita’s third season isn’t.

  • svpike

    i am glad Last Man Standing tanked, the chages they made were bad. Bring back the real cast I will start wachting again!

  • Miss Mystery

    I know, 3 episodes of the third season of Nikita was a little bitt boring, but now after Owen and Amanda return something is going on.
    Arrow is my second favourite series and it looks really great, so I hoe that both shows will survive.

    And a little stupid question: does worth to start watching again “Supernatural”?
    I remember I watched first season and second (?) and it wasn’t interesting for me so I ended watching it and I’m thinking now why Supernatural has that many seasons?
    Are next seasons much better?
    * Sorry for my english *

  • Miss Mystery

    Bit, Amanda’s, hope… OMG!
    I’ll kill my keyboard! Stupid phone!!

    StuUpid phOne!!!

    @Miss Mystery: Supernatural was fantastic in season 2 as well. It gets exponentially better with every subsequent season.

  • POIFanatic

    After season 5, you can stop if you want to cherish the show. Season 6 is good, but not to the same level as previous seasons and season 7 is atrocious. Season 8 is getting back on track.


    @ Austin Lauran

    I know it’s way to late to answer your post, wo will try to catch you some other time!

    Back in early 2000 years the #30 show had:
    May 2000 an 8.8, May 2001 an 8.6, then in May 2002 & 03 a 7.7.

  • Riff

    I’m in awe of how clever you are. You have a serious mastery over the English language to be able to make such hysterical jokes about gays and menstruation. So snappy. You should write for Last Man Standing; they could use a fresh point of view like yours.

    Dear c0ckinmymouth, if I wanted to hear the opinion of a retard, I would follow the short bus to the nearest special needs school.

    Oh, and that really embarrassing post of yours directed at me — you know, the one where you said “Monkey Business” isn’t a clever title for a show because it implies a monkey running a business — I just wanted to tell you that it took me about a minute to realize you weren’t being facetious. So, congratulations. I guess it’s true the old saying. No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the TBTN commentator.

  • Jae

    Seriously? Why is Nikita still on the air? 0.2 and 0.3 isn’t even good rerun demos… Ooh Wonder what it will get for re-runs? The fact that it is on the bubble is laughable! Well for now just enjoying Nikita limbo… How low can it go?
