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.

    I hope Flopenge falls even more against the Grammys.

    So, you people want ABC to air 1 episode of Revenge in January and 1 episode in February? Is that what you’re trying to say?

  • Samunto

    Does anyone understand why ABC tries this bullish programming against big hits? I mean it doesn’t make sense at all. And to make matters worse, Revenge is so serialized meaning viewers have to try catch up somehow when they miss it. I was spot on with my predictions.

    FOX’s toons almost tied with ABC’s originals.

    Keep hangin in there, kid. Someday I’m sure you’ll be justly rewarded!

  • DeanW

    Hawaii Five-0 will probably be adjusted down to a 3.5.

  • Travis Hayden

    Revenge and OUAT will always be fantastic shows no matter what happens to them. I am pretty sure when football ends we will see OUAT and Revenge rise in ratings and viewers. No matter what happens I am a huge fan of both of these amazing shows. All the fuss about which show is better Scandal or Revenge is just petty; they are both great TV shows, both with amazing writers, plots, both with a fan base, and as long as these fans stay loyal then both shows can prosper. Now we all know that football has a much larger fan base and it will always come out on top but that won’t stop people from recording and watching the shows they want. OUAT, Revenge, and Scandal are all amazing and that is all that matters.

    CBS would have gotten much higher return-on-investment had they aired POI instead of H50 imho.

    Good thing for me is I went to bed right after the game and got more sleep.

    I do, but no one listens to me… :(

  • Alan

    Can this Max guy get more annoying than usual?

    @marge
    First of all, we have to wait for the final ratings and the numbers can either go up or down as I have read here. Also, everything depends on monday ratings till the end of the season, especially after the return of Revolution. If the numbers can stay around demo 2.5 then CBS should leave H50 on monday.

    @ Glover

    Your a piece of work, must be Max number 3 account. Are you so pathetic as to be wishing a cancellation of a show you do not even watch, why? Go get a girlfriend or boyfriend or a toy or something instead of spending your time posting about something you do not even watch, seriously Max and the rest of these clowns coming in here week after week spamming the board about a show they supposedly do not even watch. Its so pathetic, I can only imagine what you look like and how disgusting and lonely your existence must be.

  • Mark C.

    Go H50! Trolls be angry…

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ Ultima

    Cheer up, I listen to you; it’s the advertisers who don’t listen to me!

  • Percysowner

    So in the light of all the “Revenge will be canceled and OUAT won’t last long” comments, I checked the renew/cancel index. OUAT has been steadily at the top of the certain to be renewed category, Revenge is in that category, but just at the bottom edge. So it is possible the low ratings last night could pull Revenge into likely to be renewed, but this isn’t that big of a hit for now. If Revenge starts dropping wildly, all bets are off, but for now, it isn’t in bad shape. Nashville and Castle are doing worse ratings wise, although they aren’t in any real danger either.

    “CBS would have gotten much higher return-on-investment had they aired POI instead of H50 imho.”

    CBS produces H50. Person of Interest (and 2 Broke Girls) are Warner Brothers productions. CBS has a lot more vested in the performance of their own productions than other studios’ shows. The post super bowl show, Elementary, is also a CBS production.

  • a p garcia

    My original figure were a little bit too optemestic but not far off. Both OUAT and Revenge don’t deserve such numbers, but should see a big increase next week with no football next week.

  • PhilipM

    Helping a show like H5O makes a lot of sense for CBS. It’s been up in recent weeks and those 2.4 ratings aren’t bad at all when compared to CSI or Elementary. H5O is still doing well enough to not make a move to either Friday or Sunday inevitable, and CBS might think that some additional exposure could help the show. That’s particulary lucrative due to H5O’s huge syndication deal. Keeping H5O competitive is in CBS’s best interest.

    Although it would have made some sense as well to give a drama like POI one of those football lead-ins, why should CBS care too much about POI? CBS doesn’t own POI, there’s no syndication money to be made now or in the future. TM, the other WB-owned drama on the schedule, is in trouble for that very reason and has to compete with lower-rated CBS-owned shows like TGW or CSI: NY for a spot on next year’s schedule. Not to mention that it has already been moved to CBS’s worst timeslot despite drawing pretty good ratings last year.

    POI fans shouldn’t expect CBS to provide their favorite show with too much help–and it makes sense from a business perspective to consider H5O the more valuable show of the two.

  • Britt

    Clearly there was a football game on last night. OUAT and Revenge would have low ratings. Congrats on Hawaii Five O.
