Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2012 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

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

Definitions:

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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

  • Esdru

    YAY for Blue Bloods!!!

  • Leon

    What are the odds right now on a Malibu Country renewal?

  • halloween

    bad for Fringe, season 5 a mistake

  • forg

    Glad to see Shark Tank in 2.0 again. LMS and MC are doing OK for this night. I hope ABC will keep them next season. It still has room to grow

  • Oliver

    …nothing really surprising here.

    Whatever happened to Nightline Primetime?

  • John A

    Oh come on a series low just before the finale next week is unfair to Fringe.

  • Masterbreel

    Wow, that is really pathetic, still love the show tho

  • Masterbreel

    above: on Fringe ofc

  • Alan

    LMAO @ Fringe… What a flop. Last Man Standing is doing so good, season 3 here we go.

  • John A

    Even more embarrising Kitchen Nightmares repeat did better.

  • omabin

    Sucks for fringe, but i have stopped caring about its ratings this season… Good that the comedies are up. I don’t like LMS but i have turned into a fan of malibu country, so i would like to see it stick around. Shark Tank hitting a 2.0 again is also good. Also, these are season highs for CSI NY and Blue Bloods.

  • ethan

    interesting nikita repeats with same numbers as arrow

  • J.G.

    @Oliver

    It’s premiering in the spring once LMS and MC wrap their runs

  • s0303

    1600 penn repeat did better than original fringe…that’s pretty funny.

    good night for cbs and shark tank…pretty good for abc comedies, i think they will both be renewed.

  • alexjones

    ouch for fringe, good thing ratings don’t matter now.

  • Ken

    Man, what is NBC thinking with all these 1600 Penn reruns. It’s a horrible comedy and should be put out of its misery, not having more of us exposed to it.

  • forg

    So Fringe is another show quietly ending just like Chuck (and Gossip Girl and soon 30 Rock and Private Practice)

  • moshane58

    Good for Blue Bloods.Can’t wait for Grimm to return on Friday hights.

  • RJ

    @Oliver,

    It premieres March 1, 2013 at 9/8c, once Shark Tank is done.

  • RJ

    If Fringe would have stuck with the story of the week episodes, I would have stuck around too. Somewhere in season two I just gave up because it became so boring and complex.
