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.

    @Crim Tv

    All well and good but polls don’t tell the truth all that often but hopefully but to have an overall opinion you need to have watched at least the pilot and a few more eps aswell

  • Jonathan

    @Shakeme Britney Spears has sold over 100+ million albums world wide. That is way more than all the Voice judges combined plus huge tours, endorsement deals, and the most successful line of celebrity perfumes that has grossed over 1 billion dollars.


    @ Austin Lauran

    CBS has scheduled comedies on Mon since 1952 (I Love Lucy) & I don’t see them changing that at all


    Don’t know if you saw the answer to 2000 ratings–below are ratings for the #30 show

    May 2000 8.8
    2001 8.6
    2002 7.7
    2003 7.7

    I hope this helps with your question

    @ karioloughlin

    Must be all those TAAHM viewers coming back to Monday and giving H50 a boost ;)

  • TV Host


    Are you seriously saying that FLOP Factor is doing well?
    With The Voice’s rating slip, FLOP Factor doesn’t even come close.

    Are you all right, Samuel?

  • Debbie

    How much of an adjustment are we looking at for H50?


    Honestly this isn’t surprising the Voice dropped because DWTS ratings increased because its reving up to the finale. Is it me or does anyone want Melissa/Tony to win the whole thing? They were kind of an out of nowhere kind of couple. They did really well in her season but I thought Melissa would have been voted out due to her Bachelor days were over years ago. I love Shawn/Derek but not really interested in her winning again for some reason. I think Apollo/Karina have done well. I think Kelly/Val and Emittt/Cheryl are out tonight.

    Back to the Voice I think season so far way outshines the last two. The tweaks in the format with great. Loved the battle, knockout and live playoffs that helped narrow the field and get us to know the contestants more. I feel going into top 10 we care about the contestants cause we know them so much more and in the previous two it was so cluttered u never were invested. I feel its going to be a Cassadee/Amanda finale which would be fairly exiciting considering how popular they are. I feel the Voice’s ratings will go up once we get to the finals.

    I sincerely despise this whole Voice vs. X Factor debate among the childish commenters on this site.

    What relevance does Britney Spears’s record sales from 1999 have on The X Factor’s ratings? Who cares if One Direction won the UK version of The X Factor? That has NO bearing on the US version’s success.

    This is a TV RATINGS SITE. The obnoxious “our show is better because blah” posts have nothing to do with the ratings. Spam some other forum with your blathering.

    @ shake me

    I haven’t even heard of the names you mentioned.
    You FLOP Factor fans are DELUDED!

    The only people who know about the names you mentioned are you fans of that show who are only a FEW considering the number of viewers for FLOP Factor.

    You think people outside your small fanbase of a show care or even know about them? NO! And the ratings and viewership tell exactly that!

  • Bad Wolf

    What is this Voice/X-Factor war now ???

    @ Jonathan

    When did Spears began her career ? 14 years ago, that may helps to explain the big sales. Plus : since when does quantity mean quality ?

    Seriously, if you ask me, both shows are boring. And with boring American Idol fading fast, their ratings only show that people are slowly but surely growing tired of this type of shows. The only problem is that they’re still doing better than most of scripted TV.

  • bluejay72

    LOL @ FLOP Factor fans diverting the topic when they have nothing more to be proud of of their FLOPPING show.

    They mentioned Britney’s sales to make up for her FAILURE to judge INTELLIGENTLY on the show and her embarrassing FAILED attempt to attract viewers!

    Demi who? Thanks to FLOP Factor USA, I have come to hear her name!~ :)

    Don’t distract us with your irrelevant arguments.
    Just answer one question:

    Why is FLOP Factor a ratings failure? Why????? :)

  • John

    @Tessa: I love that episode. But lets face it, this is another journey that Kripke is taking us on. He could easily rip off the core stories from his old show and make it as cool here if he wanted to. But, he’s going for something more. I did mention ‘this year’ though.

    The new info (only in the hallucinations and dreams) was that Miles tried to assassinate his best friend, but couldn’t. Why they would make Nora tell this was disappointing for me, but it still was pretty good. The situation was ripe to exploit in the hallucination itself. What did happen was Miles getting scared that he’ll fall in line behind Monroe if he meets up with him. That’s a pretty huge revelation of his inner psyche. The sequences in this episode were of a few characters letting go of something they loved and facing their fears. This was about their will more than anything. Charlie found the will to come out of her wonderful dream because of Miles. Seriously, this is the first time they have truly looked like uncle and niece. Them joking around was also realistic and charming. Miles portraying anger, confusion and sadness for Charlie was awesome. When Aaron’s wife followed them, I thought the tension was palpable. I love dream scenarios and this episode was fantastic in that regard.
    Last Resort’s episode involving hallucinations though was cheesy and horrid. I’m still watching that show because its ambitious and could get better.


    Dust Bowl on PBS was beyond outstanding last night–could use a part 3

    Yess! Die The Voice…DIE!
    XFactor shall now rise!

  • shakeme

    @bluejay: YOU are the one that brought up sales and success. are you confused?

    back on topic: the voice is down about 1.5 million viewers and .7 this week in the ratings.

  • BagToPunch

    Britney Spears is washed up and pointless. Stop acting like she’s the bloody Mona Lisa already. If she wasn’t washed up she wouldn’t be on a crappy talent show.

  • BagToPunch

    Same goes for Christina and all the rest of those former stars now appearing on these dreadful talentless programs. If they had careers they wouldn’t be on there at all.

  • HotLatino4GayMarriage

    Why do the Xfactor US fans brag about the UK version when comparing it to The Voice? Haha so weird? Can’t they say anything good about Flopney’s flop comeback?

  • eridapo

    Given that the Voice ran two minutes into Revolution’s slot, and it rated a 4.1 in its last half hour… We could see as much as 2/10s adjustment for Revolution.
