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.

    If Emily Owens doesn’t adjust down and can keep up that 0.4, I can see it getting it’s back 9. It’s the best written new CW show and is doing better than Nikita and Gossip Girl and has more total viewers (know that doesn’t mean anything) than 90210 and ANTM. Great for Hart of Dixie, I don’t have any doubt it will be renewed for a 3rd season, it’s averaging 0.6 which is actually good ratings for the CW.

  • s0303

    @sam…i agree..hod is awful, it’s like watching paint dry…i tried to watch several times (major crush on wilson bethel) but i just can’t do it even for wilson :(

  • Peeta

    Saw it coming. Hart of Dixie is getting better and better, and a great improvement from its freshman year. Emily Owens is also getting better and I enjoyed the last two episodes. Sadly, it’s done for good.
    DAMN ABC! Your best comedies shoved into a wildly competitive night! :(
    I’m going to miss you Bitch in Apt 23.

  • ash

    go on wins the sitcom battle at 9.. that’s….. surprising

  • DW

    i was a fan of 23 last year but not so much. now i wait til the net day. not good.

  • Ram510

    It’s sad that Neighbors is getting better ratings than Happy Endings

  • ReallyTired

    A 1.7 is going to save the stupid and putrid ‘The Mindy Project’.

  • vcoolwater

    Hart of Dixie still has to compete with 90210 and BATB for renewal. Who knows with the CW, which show will get renewed.

    Even with 0.7, Hart of Dixie is a tossup

  • rob60990

    “go on wins the sitcom battle at 9.. that’s….. surprising”

    Not really surprising considering the 4.1 lead-in. NBC is wasting this timeslot.

  • Max

    I love Don’t trust the B-. Just wish more people checked it out.

  • Holly

    Plenty of ouch to go around today.

    ABC has two shows with a 1.1 and nothing over a 2.0.

    FOX’s new comedy block isn’t working out so well for them. While New Girl is their highest rated show of the night, it’s nowhere near the hit it started out as last year.

    CBS cannot be happy with Vegas right now either. It got a full season, but will it stay in this slot or get moved to burnoff?

    NBC, on the other hand, can be pretty content. New Normal and Parenthood aren’t setting the ratings on fire, but for NBC they aren’t bad either. Go On seems to be doing well (though I think a better comedy pairing could help it by raising that hour).

    Hart of Dixie did respectably for the CW, but Emily Owens is still bearchow.

  • Jarrod

    To be honest, what else did ABC expect for PP? The show was struggling as it was in that time slot on that night and with the announcement of it’s cancelation, it’s rating plummeted since then. I will continue to watch till the end, but it’s still a shame that other gave up this close to the end…

  • joel

    Anything after New Girl would pull a 1.7.

  • eridapo

    The numbers are embarrassing for all the broadcast nets. ABC is in trouble on Tuesdays due to the collapse of DWTS. Sure it is cheap to make and all that, but the show is now officially under a two for a results show. The Monday edition of DWTS barely gets above a 2. Surely ABC will have to do something with DWTS soon because the show will continue to fall this cycle and go down even further next cycle. There really is an incompatibility with ABC’s schedule.

    Fox too has to do something, but will it make the changes soon or just wait for Idol to comeback to mask the hemorrhaging of viewers. For too long Fox has benefited from Idol’s ratings success to mask its inability to create successful shows.

    The CBS lineup is starting to falter as well, but it is still better than anything else on the night.

  • Mary

    Am I wrong, or did the numbers seem to be higher last year for broadcast TV in general?

  • Michael

    Hart Of Dixie is the highest rated CW show (non-supernatural).

  • riley

    I like that new show called Vegas. I didn’t care for it much at first. and then it grew on me.

  • Zach

    Yay Hart of Dixie! I hope it doesn’t adjust down. It should be noted that this ties it’s season high from the premiere. I think ABC will be first to fold with their Tuesday comedies. Maybe move HE and DTTB to 10pm Wednesdays and Nashville to 10pm Sundays. I think the comedies will be able to do high 1’s at least against less competition there. Well at least HE will be able to. I’m glad Mindy went up. I think if it can hold these numbers and Goodwin doesn’t do better then it may just end up a surprise renewal. Parenthood winning it’s slot is amazing and NBC is stupid for not giving it a full season. It will be interesting to see how Smash preforms in the slot.

  • Anna

    Someone knows the half-hours? Hart of Dixie rocks! And haters will have to continue hating for more 2 years at least ;)

  • Babygate

    Apt. 23 is just awful. Not funny, not endearing, crass… It has to go. Happy Endings has a better tone and the cast is very likeable but its not very funny either. Vegas is history. Private Practice just took a nose dive. Last nite’s epi was kind of boring. Alfre Woodard was magnificent as always but Sam can’t carry the show. Kate Walsh must be so pissed at Shonda. The change to Tuesdays killed it. New Girl ratings are close to ranking. Bet advertisers are feeling kind of dumb they shelled out all the cash based on buzz when the ratings don’t support the hype. Still, where did everybody go? Those ratings are lousy.
