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.

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 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.

    Oh dear Revenge :(

  • DW

    football was going to be a factor. that number seems low for a primetime championship game. i didnt watch it. come to think about it i didnt watch anything last night.

  • Bill

    I don’t understand why ABC didn’t just air repeats this week and air New episodes next week.

  • Felipe Nikita

    @Thiago
    Hahaha, he probably had one!!
    Poor Revenge D:, but its deserving this rating, the last 5 episodes were just terrible and terrible!

  • Jeremy

    I really hope that the 3 weeks off allow people to catch up on what they’ve missed. I don’t know what’s going to happen with the grammy’s, because award shows don’t seem to sink the ratings that much.

  • Brandy

    Omg ohno at my poor Once! That’s way lower than I expected.

  • Ram510

    OUCH!!!!!!! What happened to ABC and OUAT? Last season it didn’t matter if football was on it would still do well. Are people losing interest in OUAT? I know Revenge lost me weeks ago

    Shark Tank repeat did better than I thought

  • leonard

    Revenge is so fuc… done!

    ” that number seems low for a primetime championship game. “

    Perhaps because you’re remembering final ratings, and, as noted, those preliminary football ratings will be adjusted, certainly upwards.

  • cc

    Nice for H50.

    Biggest Loser reruns, why bother?

  • Cass rowlwland

    revenge is not coming back next season

  • Simon

    Not bad for Once Upon A Time considering what it was up against, took this long to fall below the series average. It’ll rise once the big competitive stuff is out of the way

  • joss

    omg i guess thats the beginning of the end for OUAT

  • BigBrotherFan

    @Max

    Yes! I love REVENGE but the writing is crap now. Way too many pointless characters people don’t care about (AIDEN! AIDEN! AIDEN!) and stupid side plots PORTERS AND RESTURANT! Acting is worse now thanks to AIDEN.

    You where right with your prediction last October I think. I saw your say REVENGE hit high 1’s by January. We’re HERE. You where right.

    The show is getting way to campy and over the top now. If it gets canceled Mike Kelley HAS NO ONE to blame by himself. He drove it into the ground.

    Aiden BYE
    PADMA WRAP IT UP AND OFF SHE GOES
    DELCLAN NO EXPLINATION NEEDED.

    The two con brothers suck!

  • Michael

    Wow, Revenge barely did better than American’s Funniest Home Videos and a repeat of Shark Tank :-(

  • Max Vrany

    Five-0 was live in all time zones and delayed fifteen minutes and thus is subject to the same disclaimer as the football game. Don’t despair though, there’s almost no way it doesn’t go up. The above numbers include West Coast filler programming instead of Five-0.

  • Max

    Oh, how interesting to see folks hopping on the “REVENGE may not return next season” bandwagon when only 2 months ago, I was called insane for even bringing up such a situation. :P

  • Stan

    LOL @Thiago

  • JJF

    ABC is nuts. And they wonder why their shows take hits?

    H50 managed to get 13mil with a nearly 50mil leadin. I’ll never understand why CBS squanders their big lead ins on shows with moderate ratings. So they can break even with decent ratings?

  • Devon

    These low numbers are obvious due to the game. I mean come on it got a friggin 14.6 people!!! Nothing in prime time had that demo since the season started. Revenge and OUAT were amazing last night and I’m sure that when they come back in February they will be back to their old numbers. This was completely excepted and ABC knows that, after all they put the shows up against NFL. No place for gloating over the low numbers.
