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!

    @MaryElizs: Supernatural is up from last season. How does that constitute a flop! The lengths people go to bash a show here!

    Even the Cancellation Panda can’t change the theory that a Watched Pot Never Boils. Wondering how the ABC lineup fared without a new Modern Family.

    To all you citing numbers for last night, where are y’all getting the info from?? Thanks!

    You do realize the majority of Supernatural’s episodes have either come close to doubling, doubled or more than doubled the live ratings of 90210, Gossip Girl, Emily Owens,Hart of Dixie and Nikita this season each week right?

    Proof that people don’t even need the ratings to talk and fight about the ratings.

    I am so anxcious to see the ratings for Guys with Kids…Certainly they better be increased from the last showing 1.1. Hopefully they get the picture from the large increase I am hoping it gets….Guys with Kids must live forever!!! Two things I am glad about…one that it is on NBC because it would have been gone after the first episode on CBS and two, I am glad that Jimmy Fallon is involved as they love him at NBC…Anything to have this great show renewed!!!!

    @Mary Eliza
    No TVBTN article is complete without a nutty anti-SPN fan gracing its comments section. Thanks for your hard work.

    TV Media Insights had the metered market affiliates. We’re still waiting on the viewership and demos though.

    @Mary Eliza
    Proof that SPN haters don’t need the numbers to bash the show, and the SPN fans (including myself) take the bait every time. ;)

    How much longer do we have to wait? This is nerve wrenching!

  • ivan

    i keep refreshing the page every 5 minutes wow this is really long time even the holidays delays are not as much well i guess problems can happen so i’m not mad i just hope they fix it soon cant wait to see how the shows did last night

  • The Cool Max

    I don’t see what the problem is. East Coast would have already have them every day at 10:30, so what’s the hold up??


    Does anyone if the Dalia video and/or song has charted on iTunes yet?

  • John

    I’m just refreshing the page every 10 mins!! Damn Nielsen execs must be in shock seeing the Grammy ratings at a 1.0!

  • The Cool Max

    Why were the syndicated ratings put on time & not the daily’s?

  • Paleonut

    “In the event that Nielsen is unable to produce ratings within a reasonable time period, ratings shall be determined by popular vote.”

    – Little known clause in the Nielsen contract resulting in Supernatural becoming the most watched television show ever… based solely on one episode!
