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.

    NCIS: LA really had a good night probably its best retention in a while out of NCIS. LA really needs to anchor another night so CBS can take advantage of NCIS with a new series while the show is still red hot next season. Vegas is clearly done its doing way worse than Good Wife and Unforgettable through this point. CBS might need to fast track Golden Boy and Unforgettable to start sometime between January and February. CBS will likely need to move Vegas somewhere else on the schedule preferably a switch with either The Mentalist which is suffering on Sundays and has a lot of life still in it.

    The comedies really dogged it last night it was pretty embarrassing to look at these numbers even for NBC. With FOX like I said before this block is done except for New Girl after this season, they’re at a point where a Mob Doctor cancellation would be a huge insult to the show. I think FOX should’ve kept Glee on Tuesdays and shouldn’t had started the comedy block until they actually found some mass appealing comedies.

    That’s the main problem with the comedies that I see in that 9pm hour is that their not mass appealing comedies and I predicted during Upfront time that all six of them would fail but Go On would do the best since it comes straight out of The Voice. Their comedies that cater to niche audiences. ABC is in a difficult spot right now as their having success on Fridays with LMS and Reba but would they lean towards sacrificing the TGIF block in the future just to up their ratings on Tuesdays? I think ABC is better off using the hour to boost a drama, this is actually where Last Resort should’ve been or even Nashville.

    Something interesting happened for NBC’s Up All Night and they changed the format to a multi-cam and their going to use the experiment to rejuvenate the comedy in April. This is a very interesting move as Greenblatt seems to be poised on finding more mass appealing comedies. It made me think about New Normal and how the show would probably do better if it became a multi-cam next season instead of cancelling it completely. NBC will probably think about it.

    Credit to Parenthood for doing a solid job again despite its lead-in.

  • lawrence

    people cheering a .7 for cw ….lol

  • Rick Wright

    CW will go with Bilson over Kreuk if the ratings are close. Bilson is a bigger name and has more female fans.

  • Jarrod

    @Mary: As of late, it’s hitting a 2.0. Tonight it may be a 1.8, but it’ll probably adjust up. This season has been fantastic and I truly think NBC just treats it like crap. It’s not given the respect it deserves.

  • CharlieSheen

    @ Skylar James

    I actually like the idea of ABC making Fridays really powerful with Dancing with the Stars Results airing on Fridays but the only problem is that they tape live so the performance show would need to air on Thursdays. They’ll probably expand an hour of comedies though.

  • RG-X

    Parenthood was excellent ! Glad it ‘s at least winning it’s demo

    too bad for Ben & Kate – last nite’s episode was the funniest to date:

    “Kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny, kenny -hahaha – awesome!

  • K

    New Normal is getting better. It is actually an enjoyable show to watch.

  • Ram510

    Clearly nobody wants to watch Ben & Kate. It’s the same situation as Partners, people are clearly going out of their way to not watch them. Cancel

  • lawrence

    some of these shows on the main networks were the rating the wb used to get…how sad for the networks

  • CharlieSheen

    @ Rick Wright

    It won’t come down to that it’ll come down to whoever is making more money and The CW usually don’t make decisions off of ratings or between shows. They look at their financial stats overseas and make a decision from there.

  • Anna

    For the people who’s asking why we think that HoD has more chances than BatB… it’s so simple. First, Hart of Dixie hasn’t a good lead in (and never had). Second, Hart of Dixie is on second season, closer to syndication.

    BatB will fight with The Carrie Diaries and Cult. Hart of Dixie will be renewed. If Nikita was last year any tv show on second season can get it.

  • JP

    *sigh* Goodbye Apt23. Funniest show on TV that no one is watching. :(

  • Rick Wright

    The only good thing about the Mindy Project is the secondary characters who aren’t Mindy. She isn’t a great lead.

  • ReallyTired

    @Jarrod – It’s good NBC didn’t give a full order to Parenthood, despite it winning it’s timeslot. Nobody could possibly watch Christine battling cancer and chemo for 5 months. Or that ugly ‘hippy’ girl who lives in a warehouse and has all that shrapnel in her face? show is ok in small doses.

  • Jarrod

    Emily Owens get a 0.4 and now the bloody Ringer/TSC fans are coming out of their caves. Seriously, Emily Owens will be canceled and joining Ringer & TSC in limbo. So just shut up! PLEASE!

  • Anon

    I realize this site is about ratings and not about show content, but there is no hope for [i]Apt. 23[/i] until they stop trying to be the James Van Der Beek show.

  • Pepper

    I’m happy for Hart of Dixie!

  • Rick Wright

    How can anyone seriously suggest that Apt. 23 should be cancelled when they have a lead-in show that only brings in a 1.4?
