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.

    Vegas is such a missed opportunity. Last week’s episode showed some of what it could be. This week it was just a mess. They have two great, charismatic actors and they have wasted them. I realize that it has older viewers, but so many of us are big fans of Quaid and Chiklis. Even an older Quaid is still handsome, funny and has the greatest grin ever. Give him some female attention and more humorous lines. He mostly just looks like he is in a bad mood all of the time. Chiklis makes a great intelligent mobster. The two of them together are fascinating. Why waste time on the tired old radiation plot that really belonged on NCIS? It is undoubtedly headed for cancellation but these guys and the viewers deserved a lot better than we got.

    I think Go on should have been with Guys with kids, similar demographic. It would definitely affect parenthood as well.
    Guys with kids is also a freshmen but NBC tends to support TNN.

  • senor chang

    We’ll see how the NBC comedies do without The Voice in January, anyway, so arguing about what to do now seems like a premature discussion to have.

  • Ken Trew

    a lot of great talent. Love Nikolis but he’ll never win. Amanda will win. Melanie should’ve been out long ago…just sayin’

    Why is my IP blocked on this GD site? I posted on Page 9 from another computer but can’t from this machine.

  • CG

    Woops, now it works. Go NCIS!

  • SarahL

    Okay, I have tried to ignore it, but now I just have to ask; who is that guy in the picture? Why is he wearing that awful great outfit? And what is Kermit doing next to that wacky looking dude?

  • jct

    Where are the Monday’s and Tuesday’s final #s??

  • TJ

    New Girl was a really bad episode last night. The show’s writers should be ashamed.

  • Vaf

    Go On isn’t really doing better than New Girl its just protected behind The Voice. New Girl is at least getting its own numbers off of a weaker lead-in.

    Guys with Kids should actually be directly behind The Voice I would like to see them put that Cee-Lo Green sitcom and GWK together behind The Voice next season.

    @Linda E., I’m hardly a NCIS lover. It’s far down my list of favorite shows. I watch it, but it’s more like a time filler. However, Dinozzo didn’t call McGee “probie” for so long because he was on the probational period. It’s because it stuck. Gibbs’ mentor still called him “probie” to the day he died, decades after they’d met. It’s a term of affection.

  • Edward

    There is absolutely no evidence that Whitney is tanking GWK. Airing the night before Thanksgiving brought every NBC show to season lows.

    Dancing n voice shipould not being goin head to head
