Wednesday broadcast ratings have been posted here!  Cable and Cable News posts are here and here. Sorry for the delay everyone!


UPDATE 2: Looks like final ratings for last night will be released Friday (tomorrow)  morning. See you then!

UPDATE 1: So we just got word that Fast Affiliate Ratings and Final National Ratings for Wednesday, December 5 will not be available at all today. Which means no Preliminary, Cable, Cable News or Final Ratings posts. According to our source, an update from Nielsen should be coming in the next hour, and any new information we get from that will be posted here. Apologies again, everyone!

Fast Affiliate Ratings for Wednesday, December 5, 2012 are delayed due to processing issues. We're not sure when they'll be coming in, but if we get an update or an ETA from Nielsen we'll let you know. We'll also update this post with a link to the overnight report once they do come in. Sorry!

    That goes without saying. I think most people know that about you!

    @ omg> I’m a different Max, not “Revenge Max.”


    @ different Max

    Would you consider gravatar & place a pic beside your name, or change your name to “The Good Max” or something?

  • The Cool Max

    That sounds fine.

    Chicago Fire hit a series-high in the metered market ratings. Beating the crap out of Nashville.

    If only the Panda bear was as ferocious as the cancellation bear, tv viewers, and tvbtn posters, would be worried by this picture.

  • eridapo

    the numbers were so huge , they had to check them twice. or low. i think im going with low.

    First conspiracy of the day…. Might as well throw mine in….

    CBS couldn’t believe the ratings for the Grammy pres. were so low it asked for a recount…

  • dffd

    how about xfactor?

  • eridapo

    Does this mean we are losers? Lol im waiting for the ratings while at work too. Oh well, whatever. I’m sick of peoples opinions anyway. I feel like a WINNER!

    No. It means your employer has no clue what you do all day, but they pay you anyways which in my book makes you a WINNER,

    Yeah I heard Chicago Fire outdid the 4.9 after The Voice with a 5.2 it looks like not having CSI to go against really helped. Chicago Fire is the real deal for NBC. This is their biggest drama hit in a long time.

    Gotta hand it to the Supernatural crew, I know they love to keep us in suspense over the winter break, but delaying the ratings? That’s just going the extra mile! (Cruel capricious gods that they are!)

    How is Nielsen even remotely relevant now? Do they count my DVR? No. Do they count when I DVR, and delete after two minutes of viewing? No. Do they track all the fast forwarded commercials? No.

  • Henry

    X Factor did very well similar to the last few episodes with a 6.0

    Nashville a 4.5 as ABC was a bit down this week without a new Modern Family. Nashville beat the Grammys special on CBS (3.6).

    SVU a 4.5

    Arrow still doing well with a 2.5 for C-Dub.

    NBC didn’t do Whitney anyway favors with these holidays and breaks. It looks like Whit/GWK ratings might end up similar to the Thanksgiving numbers they got.

    Story of the night is Chicago Fire though.

    “How is Nielsen even remotely relevant now? Do they count my DVR? No. Do they count when I DVR, and delete after two minutes of viewing? No. Do they track all the fast forwarded commercials? No.”

    They track all those things for people with Nielsen boxes. Also, the advertisers believe in Nielsen, which is all that really matters in terms of their relevance.

    Will Supernatural keep flopping/falling?

  • The Rookie

    Criminal Minds better have something better than 3.0, if not all Paget Brewster fans will have still more confirmation that her absence is affecting the show.

  • Mi

    I loved this week’s episode of Arrow, now I want to see the ratings for this episode please.. :) wake up Nielsen.

  • Alejandro

    @ The Rookie

    Im a huge fan of the show and im hoping that ship wreck of an episode they showed last night gets a 0.6 or 0.7 to give the writers a wake up call!
