Definitions:

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

  • Charlotte Always

    FOX this fall has been a huge failure.

  • Clarke

  • taylor

    ABC needs to switch up its schedule STAT.

    all the comedies are killing each other but ABC is being hurt the most

  • RandomCommentor

    Bones may tie New Girl, Fox’s best weekday comedy. Fox just can’t catch a break it seems.

  • man

  • suzie

    I hope HOD adjusts up.

  • Felix

    At least Private Practice is up a tenth in 18-49. Last night’s episode was amazing! But it’s good that it’s the show’s final season. So the ratings don’t matter anymore.

  • Petar Ivanov

    Welll at least ABC comedies look funny………i mean their ratings(are funny).

  • JD

    ABC, move the f*** out of tuesday night comedy. It’s not gonna happen for you. Save Happy Endings, which is your best comedy FYI, and Apt. 23 is still better than most. Get Rid of the Terribleness that is the Neighbours and put HE in there at least.
