NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

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.

    “Angus T apologizes for his remarks”

    Translation: His PR handlers are finally beginning to do their jobs.

  • OMG

    Great that New Girl rebounded (haha)!

    I do like Go On too, but I do feel that it is somewhat of a “protected” show like Revolution, and it will be hard to distinguish if Go On is a hit, or just a show on life-support, just like how Brothers and Sisters just live off Desperate Housewives or Private Practice or Scandal live off Grey’s Anatomy.

  • eridapo

    It does seem like everything is trending 2/10s higher this week than the last three weeks. Like I said yesterday in my theory about DVR and Monday’s ratings, people caught up with their DVR queues during the holiday. Since they’ve caught up, they are watching live again. This trend, however, will be short live as their queues begin to fill up again the live ratings will go back down.

  • Oliver

    Given The Voice overruns, expect Go On to be adjusted down.

  • ReallyTired

    What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas. Certainly not on people’s tv screens.

    The Bear is in the house.

  • Justin121

    Ben & Kate and DWTS and NCIS are the biggest winners.

  • Petar Ivanov

    FOX must fo like CBS and must cancel Ben and Kate imidiatly and put reruns of NG at 8:30 before NG original episodes. FOX must be quick before NG die complitly.

  • Oliver

    @OMG

    It will be easy to distinguish whether Go On is a hit once The Voice departs in January.

    My guess is that GO/TNN will finish their runs by the end of March and NBC will put UAN/GWK in the post-Voice Tuesday 9pm slot for a five-episode run.

  • DW

    with those 10 numbers i dont think SOA topped it. emily will be cancelled and the lead can go on and do better.

  • senor chang

    BEN AND KATE :) :) :)
    ABC did reaaally well. CBS did well (save Vegas), NBC did great (save The New Normal), FOX did about as well as they can hope.

  • Oliver

    Ben & Kate is performing better than repeats of New Girl would do, so there’s no point pulling it.

  • Charlotte Always

    @ Oliver there was no overrun. It started right on time.

  • s0303

    @justin121…how is ben and kate a big winner? it was the lowest rated show outside of the cw…

  • Petar Ivanov

    @ Angus T apologizes for his remarks

    Yep, he is leaving. The question is will CBS continue with this circes one more year or will end it this season.

  • r0ckmypants

    @ccc – Look back a few weeks. The New Normal’s first few episodes outrated Parenthood’s, which has been at about the same level all season. Parenthood isn’t lead-in dependent.

  • jT

    new girl will bounce back

  • Kate

    Maybe its best for FOX to scrap the whole “comedy block” thing. They tried to fix something that wasn’t broken. Their comedies were doing fine last season.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Bill Gorman

    “Ben & Kate is performing better than repeats of New Girl would do, so there’s no point pulling it.”

    Is there a rational person out there predicting it will be pulled?

    Canceled at the end of the season, certainly. But pulled? I don’t think so.

  • Samunto

    A Happy morning for most networks. I hope NBC comedies can do as well when they face the real test of not having The Voice as lead-in as from January. Though i still expect Betty White to be very solid in the 8pm hour.

    OK, good argument eridapo. The best so far. The qusestion is how short…..week, 2 weeks, a month@
