Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for CBS (NFL Football and Hawaii Five-0) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. See below for more information on these Fast Affiliate Ratings.

On CBS, NFL Football: Ravens at Patriots scored a preliminary 14.6 adults 18-49 rating from 7-10PM. Update: A special episode of Hawaii Five-0 earned a Time-Zone Adjusted Fast National 3.4 adults 18-49 rating. This number is unlikely to change significantly in the finals. Check the finals, which probably will not be available until Wednesday this week due to the MLK holiday, for accurate football numbers.

On ABC, America's Funniest Home Videos garnered a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating down 7% from last week's 1.4. Once Upon A Time earned a season low 2.4, down 14% from last week's 2.8 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too optimistic.  Revenge scored a season low 1.7 among adults 18-49 down 15% from last week’s 2.0.

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 baseball 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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    What’s with all the comments that have ABC pluralized? “ABC have..” “ABC are…”?

    Likely international readers. US English treats collective nouns as singular, in international English they can be can be singular or plural.

  • Oliver

    Sorry, that should be non-American readers.

  • @munC

    Time for ABC to move OUAT & Revenge for a competion-less timeslots…
    But OUAT did great what it was against it…

  • Paul

    ABC is just crazy!!! What’s wrong with them?

    For what I read in other sites the writing is not that bad, Peter Lenkov has been around for a while with other cop procedurals, so he is not new in the business . the poor acting is the main problem with the show, and that is why this show has guest stars week after week, to compensate that. They are bringing Terry O.Q to the show again to see if he can carry the show.
    ———–
    Do you actually watch H50 or you only read things on “other sites”? Because if you watch the show, you should know that it’s the writing that’s the weak and not the acting. As for “Golden boy”, I watched the trailer and I am certain it will be cancelled very quickly. There is absolutely nothing compelling about this cop precedural, at least from previews it doesn’t look good.

  • Ruan

    The top rated rerun of the night was that of a 24-year-old show. Why on Earth would FOX cancel “The Simpsons” like some crazy readers of this site keep suggesting? It even beat all-new episodes of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” and “Revenge”.

  • SHERI

    @ Ateofi & Mia

    IMO I think you both are wrong, I think 5-0 is strong in acting and scripts ! Season 3 has been wonderful and I hope to see many more years of this great show. Another great episode last too by the way !!

  • mary

    @Sheri

    I agree that this season is awesome and I have a hard time figuring out what my favorite episode is so far this season because there have been so many good ones. I almost get to the point that I don’t want to even read any of the comments on this site anymore. Last week on TV there were all new episodes on Monday night and Hawaii Five 0 beat the competition in total viewers and demo numbers. (18-49) For a 10 pm show it is doing very well. If you look at all networks the 10 pm shows are all down. Hawaii Five 0 is holding its own and doing very well lately.

  • Justin121

    Ah, here we go again…

    @Who Shall Not Be Named,

    Should I have said: “one of its highest ratings in four years”, instead?

    Or are you simply angry that I sounded smarter than you?… :)

  • bluejays

    @Mia. The acting on HFO is not weak. It’s a damn sight better than the acting on many procedurals. And actually AOL and Scott Caan are very good comedically too when they get into one of their bantering episodes. The episode with them stranded at sea this season was brilliant.

    the issue IS the writing, most fans and viewers agree on that. It’s because they intro’d a character who was hated (although the eps were still pretty good but a lot of people hated Lori). Then they got really bogged down in a mystery about Shelburn that kind of went nowhere and dragged. Now they’re doing a similar thing with Steve’s mother. The end of season two was a mess. There have been some better eps recently though and I’m hoping it’s finding its stride again and that we can drop the angst and Steve’s mother crap and have a good, tongue in cheek action show back.

    Oh and even if AOL couldn’t act – and he can – I’d watch him just walk around he’s that damn pretty!

    @ Mia
    NCIS became a hit during its 7th Season. Season 3 wasn’t one of the most watched program. So why Hawaii Five-0 won’t become a hit ?

  • somebody

    I now have 3 episodes of Ravenge on my DVR that I’ve yet to watch. The show has completely lost my attention this year…looks like I’m not the only one. I think the show had a great season finale last year, but really lost it when the writers replaced Tyler with Daniel on the big beach scene which got the whole show started anyway. Now the whole show has just fallen in quality. There are so many double crossings that happen in an hour, that its ridiculous. Whats even more ridiculous is that the characters don’t seem to mind they’ve been screwed over after the commercial break, and side with that party that did said screwing..cmon. Like American Horror Story this year (which had a few better episodes towards the end) the quality just fell apart by becoming too complicated and losing what made the show good in the first place. If it does get cancelled (whcih I don’t see happening) Mike Kelley pulled a Tim Kring.

  • somebody

    Granted I wouldn’t have watched it last night anyway over the AFC Championship Game, that’s just stupid scheduling by ABC. As much as I hate the wait, AMC did it right with The Walking Dead. The hype should be massive when that returns in 3 weeks…so not only does Revenge have to go up against the Grammys, it has to go up against that…and the Grammys, won’t keep people from watching The Walking Dead. And for the record Heroes actually blew it with an awful season 1 finale and than just got worse from there.

  • Ateofi

    @CBSViewer
    I am reallly curious why NCIS has become such phenomenon? I watched three episodes and I can’t stand it. Acting was reallly bad, especially by Michael Weatherly and that lab girl with Ponnytails, Pauley perrette. Mark Harmon is the only tolerable actor. the dialogues were radiculous one-liners and the stories were boring. Still, I have to admit, the ratings are impressive.

  • Mia

    @cbs viewer
    Agree, h50 will become a hit ,when pigs fly.
    NCIS was always trending up , since the first season. Same as POI is doing now. H50 has been trending down since the start.
    POI will be the next NCIS. No H50.
    Marc Harmon and Jim Caviezel are the main reasons for those shows to be hits

  • Ateofi

    @Mia,
    POI is trening up only thanks to the powerhouse like TBBT and TAHM but it loses much of it’s lead in. Secondly, Jim Caviezel is terrible with his monotonous voice and facial expression, he can put you to sleep with his “acting”. Michael Emerson is the one who saves this show. I highly doubt POI will ever reach NCIS ratings.

  • Sarah

    @ateofi, lol! I love Jim Caviezel’s voice, love his acting skill.
    Used to be a big NCIS fan but now POI is my favorite show of all time. :)

  • Rachel

    Revenge is a terrible show. Who cares.

  • Ultima

    @Justin121
    Should I have said: “one of its highest ratings in four years”, instead?

    You could have said that and I would have mocked you for claiming the 46th highest rated episode in the previous four years as “one of its highest ratings.”

    :roll:

  • Jason

    I don’t really care for Revenge’s ratings now since I’ve already striked off the show from my list. Episode 12 from season 2 was my last. I tried to give it a shot but in the end it ended getting removed.

    #1 reason for striking off Revenge is the poor writing for the last 4-5 episodes. Just horrible
