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 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.

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.

    Good for H50.

    I’m not sold on Kevin Bacon in The Following…yet. He annoys me. James Purefoy though has a lot of potential.

  • CrimTV

    As long as The Following stays above Fox’s 1.9 scripted average, it’ll be fine

  • Petar Ivanov

    The Following premiere is lower than tera nova and Alkatraz last year.

  • WOWZA

    FOX shows ALL go up a tick with Idol on the schedule. SOMEONE please do some alaysis here… am I right? I really think this is proven.

    This needs to be mentioned because the renew index starts counting an average in Jan when Idol premieres.

  • Babar Suhail

    Another 10M+ for HIMYM. Yay!

  • Mrs. Angela Lansbury

    My word, Bones had me on the edge of my rocking chair. A superlative hour of television.

  • Barbie

    Hawaii Five-0 :(

  • Buffy

    Should we be worried about castle at all??

  • Brian J

    I’ll be curious to see how Fox handles “The Following.” It’s repeating the premiere this Friday, but it can’t do that every week, right? It’s a heavily serialized show, so you’d want some way for people to catch up on it fairly easily. Can they make it free on iTunes or something?

    It’s only on for 14 more episodes this season, but perhaps with enough promotion it could have, wait for it, a much bigger following at the end of this season.

    @WOWZA
    “Also, someone needs to report on how, as I always mention, FOX does better when Idol starts . I mean that in the sense that all of their shows go up .2 or so. (Bones ….)”

    Bones went up because it doesn’t complete with The Voice now, not because of AI.

  • Oliver

    Decent for The Following. I expect Fox will have expected more, though, given level of promotion. It don’t think it will last.

    Deception is one-and-done. The Carrie Diaries is not quite dead, but not far off.

    Weak for Hawaii 5-0, especially considering its NFL boosted airing yesterday. Friday or Sunday next season for sure.

  • WOWZA

    It is rare for FOX shows to premiere this high.

  • Joe

    The Following was so epic! I’m hooked!

  • WOWZA

    This season**

  • Billy

    What a waste of the post AFC Championship game time slot. Hawaii Five-0 did nothing with the extra showing from the previous day.

  • Grey

    Considering ABC gave “Castle” absolutely no promotion this past week I’m really suprised it’s up – that’s assuming there are no adjustments later.

  • Petar Ivanov

    @The Following premiered worse than Alcatraz. LOL

    Yep. Alkatraz was 3.3 but 2 HOURS.So i guess first hour was even bigger.

    Tera Nova was 3.1 1 hour.

  • RyanCanada

    90210 better be cancelled with those numbers

  • Hmm

    Very happy to see Castle up!

  • John

    Good start for The Following but gotta remember Terra Nova and Alcatraz premiered to similar numbers and both were cancelled at the end of the season, (Granted I think The Following is a stronger show but that’s just my opinion)
