You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.

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.

    I believe this is the second week in a row “GO” has beaten “NG” in A18-49. That’s a pretty big achievement for NBC, even if “TV” is helping out its comedy.

    Is the same true in A18-34?

    Unfortunately, the drop for “TNN” isn’t good.

  • awery

    guess it is safe to say that matthew perry has a hit.. third time is the charm

  • Max Vrany

    Night 2 of what’s shaping up to be a good week for the broadcast nets*.

    CBS is mixed, leaning positive. NCIS up big, and it has a shot at adjusting up over 20 million viewers, NCIS:LA up slightly. Vegas dragged the night down or CBS might have had a shot at the 18-49 crown.

    ABC is obviously pleased that Dancing won, but it’s obviously down big from previous finales.

    NBC got a good showing from The Voice, and their comedies beating FOX’s is a good sign for them.

    FOX can’t be happy with those results, even though they’re up from last week.

    *Except CW.

  • Kate

    Can’t wait to see Go On’s ratings when it doesn’t have the voice as a lead in. And as much as I like Ben and Kate, it has to go, it’s pulling everybody’s numbers down. It’s killing New Girl. It’s a terrible lead in. This whole comedy block thing isn’t working out for FOX the way they hoped I guess. The only show benefiting from a lead in is Mindy.

  • THE OLD MAN

    The Voice sings out a 3.8, Go On 2.5 & TNN 1.7 win comedy battle, PH 1.8 about par w/ its average

    ABC caught a break as Grinch 2.5 & Shrek 2.4 equal DWTS averages, DWTS takes 9-11 w/3.0, surely winning 10:00 over SOA

    FOX has good news as NG back up to 2.3, RH about even w/ avg, B&K + MP serious cause for alarm

    HOD & EOMD 0.5/0.3 LOL for CW

    CBS NCIS 3.5 & close to 20M viewers, LA about par w/ avg, Vegas smokin salmon for the bear

    “guess it is safe to say that matthew perry has a show that will survive into a second season.. third time is the charm”

    Fixed that for you.

  • rosam

    Will suck see Vegas cancelled. O.O

  • bigbrotherfan

    CLEARLY THE NEW NORMAL IS A MAJOR WEAK LINK

  • psychic

    Holy sh*t NCIS.
    Why do so many people watch it? It’s the most overrated thing on television.

  • Charlotte Always

    Very happy for Go On!

  • ccc

    I wonder what would happen if Parenthood actually got a lead-in THAT IT DIDN’T BEAT???

  • Nope

  • Maximillian

    The AI for Mindy is so sad, but I hope it gets renewed. Maybe FOX will shake up their lineup, move some things around, and it’ll improve the ratings. One can dream right?

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “What happened to Mondays final ratings btw?”

    Our Thanksgiving holiday continues to delay various ratings reports.

    We’re just so damn thankful it takes a while to recover.

  • Joe

    Ben and Kate is really a stronger show than Mindy at this point given their lead-ins.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “For the first time in a long while, these Tuesday ratings don’t look so depressing, especially CBS 8-10pm, NBC’s full night, ABC especially.”

    Perhaps because ratings have fallen so far since the premieres. Had these ratings appeared in week 2 or 3 you’d have been wailing.

  • RJ

    @psychic,
    Since when is NCIS overrated? To most people, its underrated. Nobody ever talks about it, yet it still gets close to 20 million viewers. Overrated is used to describe a show that has nearly no viewers and gets tons of media attention.

  • Oliver

    I’m convinced that Ben & Kate will improve a little once The Voice ends while Mindy will keep falling. The question is whether its ratings become good enough for Fox to justify a renewal.

  • CrimTV

    @Brian J

    The New Normal rose 13% this week, so why did you say “the drop for TNN isn’t good”?
