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.

    @a p garcia: the thing is, Revenge and OUAT arent returning next week, go figure.

  • K

    @John A

    It sure did. But it is doing well enough to stay on CBS’ schedule for the time being. It will be interesting to see how Elementary will do after the Super Bowl.

  • frodo

    @ a p garcia

    Thats the things on top of everything else, Revenge and Once are going on hiatus for three weeks when they will be back against the Grammys, which killed Desperate Housewives last year. So no Revenge or Once next week. And the big reveal in episode 14 of Revenge will be wasted as half the viewers and the hype has been lost.

  • Matthew

    I kinda hope that instead of taking a 3 week break for OUAT and Revenge, ABC will take a 4 week break and just air their season finales a week later.

  • Glover

    @frodo

    I don’t care what you think about me and if you watch a show like Revenge you must be so dumb that you are just not able do judge me or anybody else. Revenge is a show for stupid and ignorant people and I feel sorry for you being part of that audience.

  • Ultima

    People expecting Revenge to get canceled do realize that one of ABC’s midseason shows would have to do better than it, right?

    They have Zero Hour, airing in that awesome Thursday 8pm timeslot; Red Widow, which has Revenge as a lead-in; and Body of Proof, no comment needed…

  • Sarah

    @PhilipM,
    hope CBS won’t treat POI like dirt next couple years like the way they’ve been treating TM.

  • tobes

    @frodo don’t worry Episode 13 is on against the grammys not Episode 14

  • eridapo

    What I don’t understand, is why the hell are ABC airing there dramas up against THREE MAJOR EVENTS?! Golden Globes, Football and the Grammys, are they stupid, it’s gonna fall further :(

    Remember…It is ABC scheduling you are talking about. They been doing this for a decade now with the same results. You would think that they would have learned something by now after so many disastrous results.

    CBS is going to renew The Mentalist for a sixth season… how can they be so cruel? :roll:

  • Nerdbot

    I hope ABC decides not to air Revenge during the Grammys. I prefer waiting one more week for the show to return than watching an episode that could be even lower rated than last night’s.

  • A

    That sucks for both Once and Revenge but ABC clearly should learn this as a lesson. They are so stupid.

    And lol @ max thinking revenge is really losing its audience lol.

  • Ultima

    @eridapo

    As I’ve tried to explain, ABC was trying to avoid scheduling like this…

    (holiday break), ONE episode, (off), (off), ONE episode against Pro Bowl, (off), (off), ONE episode, (off)

  • Ateofi

    Ouch for H50 – it was adjusted down. I was hoping for better performance, but well if I can’t have what I like, I like what I have. The overall ratings and viewership for season three will improve significantly.

  • GossipBoy

    Revenge is a international smash hit. ABC has all the reasons to renew it for at least full 4 seasons. Don’t pay attention to the numbers lol. Come one people.

    And Max is retarded as always. The poor kid makes me laugh. :

  • JoJo

    At this point the ratings for OUAT don’t really matter. OUAT is clearly a huge show for ABC and will get renewed no matter what the ratings are from here on out. Revenge seems to be losing some of its audience week after week and I blame that on its mediocre second season.

    “I prefer waiting one more week for the show to return than watching an episode that could be even lower rated than last night’s.”

    Let’s assume that Revenge is certain to be renewed as I predict (feel free to mock me later if I am wrong).

    In that case, why should fans care at all what the ratings are on exception nights like last night?

  • eridapo

    @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

    According to my local CBS broadcast station in LA, H50 was scheduled to start at 7PM PST and it was only delayed by approx. 20 Minutes. Thus Football numbers are built into the first half hour. The second half hour aired on schedule, and per Marc Berman it rated in t he 2.7s

    No more wondering is needed. As noted, time zone adjusted rating was a 3.4.

    Quit panicking people! No network has a chance to beat a Football Championship game. Revenge will be fine.
