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.

    Castle for old peeps only, CBS next year?

  • Jon

    Looks like Deception will have a short shelf life

    Chris: “not even Victoria Pratt could make me watch Castle, but I guess that could explain why the ratings weren’t even worse. Well, no it couldn’t, but honestly–we’re supposed to believe that goddess was married to a character played by NATHAN FILLION?”

    Actually, no. She wasn’t the ex-wife. That was Darby Stanchfield. Vickie played a supposedly murdered wife who turns up alive married to some…well…schmuck.

    The Hispanic cop was drooling over her the minute he saw her, though. :-)

    Gavin: “Didnt see deception because it sounded like a rip off of Revenge. Was it?”

    Not really. There are similarities only in that a rich dysfunctional family is apparently involved in concealing a crime. Like that hasn’t been done two million times…

    Otherwise there’s little comparison in either characters, motivations, or quality in acting, writing, etc. Deception appears to be a fairly straight forward crime drama whereas Revenge is a deeply complicated psychological study of the subject of revenge. Deception’s reveals in the premiere indicate there will be more to the story than just the death of the daughter, of course, the other people in the family are all scumbags, too, but no surprise there. But I don’t see it developing into the rich mythology of Revenge, with vast criminal conspiracies, martial arts masters (I still want to know Takeda’s back story before anyone else’s! :-) ), etc.

    Castle needs to Go… it is on it’s last leg!

  • Andrew

    Deception is really intriguing and well written although the flashback versions of the main character and her friend look nothing like either of them lol

    I am addicted to Castle;especially since the two have added the “love” dimension to their relationship. It took 5 series to get to this point. Don’t disappoint by not permitting the multi-dimentional writing & the great ensemble of actors more time to evolve. The reason NCIS is not working is that Gibbs has yet to find a believable love interest and the “murders” have become boring. Castle is one step ahead. Just don’t kill off this aspect of the story line & the committment Castle & Beckett could & should explore. There is a ways left to go. Plus, the higher level of murder story lines has been steadily rising. Castle is reaching viewing ages 30’s-60’s. Pretty good range. Appealing to this group brings together age & intellegence instead of teeny bopper reality and/or mindless sex mentality. I think CBS had a good thing going. Hope they don’t quit while they are ahead.
