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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Malibu Country already below Last Man Standing? Not a good sign…

  • BigBrotherFan

    MC isnt looking so good now.

  • richard

    first?

  • Timmy G

    Friday’s back to normal as no show reached above a 2.0. Still excellent for Shark Tank though.

  • s0303

    wasn’t it just 2 weeks ago we were admiring lms and mc ratings :) i predicted this, both are horrible shows….

    sad grimm fell…was the best episode of the season by far…

  • NBC is awesome

    NBC needs to firm up 8 and 10, then they will win fridays for sure. How about a revamped version of Deal or No Deal, with co-host Kate Falnnery for 8, and Hannibal for 10?

  • richard

    3rd, oh well

    Grimm was AWESOME! last night. Is it done for now? when does it come back?

    wow at MC, it has fallen quite a bit from the premiere. dont watch it, just interesting, its now below LMS

  • Oliver

    I think ABC should accept TGIF is a failed experiment and move them to Tuesday in Jan, move HE/A23 to Wed 10pm and put Shark Tank back at 8.

    Nashville can be moved to Sunday where it will have a compatible lead-in.

  • Kavyn

    So ANTM didn’t do any better than Nikita did. Don’t they usually do the ANTM special before the finale?

  • richard

    was there any particular reason a whitney houston special aired last night? idk,seems kind of random

  • John A

    So much for TGIF those comedies are starting to flop. A clip show of Antm can do better than a new nikita LOL

  • The Old Woman

    Ouch @ Grimm. That’s bad. The ratings keep falling every week. I thought the show would have better ratings for the fall finale. Not looking good.

  • Kavyn

    Also I saw LMS last night. That was one of the most racist television shows I have ever seen. Complete garbage. I’m glad I don’t tune in to that show on a weekly basis.

  • richard

    @ S0S03 yeah, it was really good, do you know when its coming back?

  • Mark Wilkins

    so much for fridays at 8 being a bad timeslot, antm did a tenth higher and it was a clip show

  • Julia

    Was there ever a TV show un-canceled because of a Facebook page???

  • Kavyn

    @Julia No.

  • Joe

    Im surprised Grimm fell on its season finale’

    The NBC comedy repeats did okay and I’m sure hurt LMS/MC a bit too…CBS looks tired on this night…ANTM did well for a Friday. FOX looks dead

  • THE OLD MAN

    Everything down! Must have been the Breaking Dawn Pt2 effect!

  • Oliver

    GWK got
