You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.


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.

    HART OF DIXIE!!! so happy about it… However, that’s pretty much everything I have to be happy about. ABC did behind awful (my beloved comedies!), and new girl is also going downards way too fast… Leaving airing in the land of non-watched comedies that Fox put around it is finally hurting it. What an horrible night for every show not called hart of dixie

  • marcos

    apt 23 is so damn good. mindy and raising hope isnt look that bad comparing to the other comedies. and what the heck hapenned to new girl?

  • senor chang

    WTF. Three non-CW shows hitting a 1.1, New Girl/Go On down even more, and only four out of fifteen scripted shows above a 2? What happened?

  • Jeff (Canada)

    I think New Girl, Go On and Happy Endings are all cannibalizing each other’s ratings. It’s not good for any of those 3 being on at the same time.

  • rob60990

    FOX needs to give up on this 2 hour comedy block until they can actually find an anchor and a show that can self-start at 8pm. New Girl is no MF, TBBT, or heck even 2 Broke Girls.

    I’m not surprised at Private Practice, on top of a horrid lead-in, I didn’t see a single advertisement. I won’t be shocked if next Wednesdays episode does better than these recent Tuesday ones.

  • The Old Woman

    Low ratings all over the board. Looks like a lot of folks did not watch TV yesterday.

    Parenthood still stable for NBC!

  • B plus

    Parenthood continues to do well and WON ITS TIME SLOT. I would put Shark Tank on Tuesday Nights after DWTS and then move Happy Endings and Apt 23 to air after LMS/MC on Friday nights. ABC can then promote it as TGIF.

  • Josh

    I hope Parenthood gets adjusted up last nights episode was incredible.

  • SarahL

    The Mindy Project is still struggling, but at least it got a minor bump.

  • r0ckmypants

    Did everyone just forget that ABC airs shows on Tuesday? Those numbers are horrible! Truly a shame for Apartment 23, considering how hysterical last night’s episode was.

  • Emery Jason

    wow at Apartment 23

  • fringewillget5seasons

    Vegas is really underperforming. Lower than The Mentalist was Sunday.

    HoD shows a hint of life after all, all things CW considered.

  • Brian J

    If “Go On”/”Normal” can beat “New Girl”/”Mindy” on a consistent basis, it’ll be a pretty big achievement for NBC. I’m sure the network would like both shows to be higher, but considering “The Voice” was down a little and that they haven’t been on the air for two or three weeks, they didn’t do too badly.

    CBS continues to impress, even if “Vegas” isn’t doing well. One thing seems more and more likely, at least to me, which is that “NCIS: LA” will be moved to a new night next year. It could probably lift Fridays or Mondays and allow CBS to nurture some new show(s) on Tuesday.

    ABC is in a lot of trouble. “DWTS” at least has the excuse for being older but still respectable and cheap. The other shows are getting to be lethal.

    Fox has its problems, too, primarily because it can’t seem to launch shows at 8:00. What might fix this problem for them is not at all clear, however.

  • Reality TV Addict

    The Voice is actually up from the last results show which was a 3.0 on thursday (X Factor was 2.3). Last tuesday was a 2 hr show compared to yesterday’s 1 hr.

    And like always The Voice will probably be adjusted up again by a tenth.

  • jimbo

    Please explain to me why Raising hope continues to be on air while Guys with kid is on the brink of being cancelled?? I don’t get it.

  • Charmed

    Yesss Hart Of Dixie! I hope it doesn’t adjust down! Season 3 here we come!

  • s0303

    yeah emily owens…now if it could just increase like that for a few more weeks…

  • Sarah

    Worst episodes of Happy Endings and Private Practice I’ve ever seen. And I’ve watched both from the beginning.

  • Reality TV Addict

    * Last weeks

  • senor chang

    The sitcom pileup at 9 really makes you wonder how these shows would do if even one network yielded the time slot.
