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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Overhyped New Girl is totally lead-in dependent. Even underrated The Middle can pull a 2.5 on its own against American Idol and almost double the viewers. :D

  • Oliver

    RIP Happy Endings, Goon and The New Normal.

  • Mike

    damn it GO and TNN!!

  • KT

    New Girl DESERVED those ratings after last night’s ending! Wowza!

    Was hoping for higher ratings for my HoD though! :(

  • JacobYates

    Way to go Vegas! Hope it gets adjusted up

  • James

    RIP Happy Endings. I anticipate the end to be announced before sweeps starts. Sigh.

  • jT

    Go new girl!!!!!!!!!!

    Happy to see it rebound

  • Ryan Schwartz

    How is “New Girl” lead in dependent? A 1.6 isn’t a good lead in number. It spiked almost a full point in the demo. Sad to say it, but it looks like Matthew Perry will have another one and done show. “Go On” is growing on me, even if it has yet to meet its full potential, and TNN has become my go-to love to hate it show.

  • Mark

    HUH Rob? New girl was well up over Raising hope and where better than last week. Lead in? What lead in are you referring to?

  • Bazza

    @rob60990 Great point

  • israelCD

    EMILY OWENS got more viewers than HART OF DIXIE??? Whaaaaaaaattt???

  • BigBrotherFan

    I WAS DEAD ON WITH MY PREDICTION OF THE TASTE SECOND WEEK LAST WEEK! LMAO FLOP

    THE NEW NORMAL WHAT A JOKE…SO SURE IT’S COMING BACK? LOL

    GO ON!!! DAMMIT! HOD WHAT HAPPEND????

    GREAT VEGAS GLAD TO SEE IT UP AND MINDY TOO!

    HAPPY ENDINGS DID OKAY CONSIDERING WHAT B- DID!

    HAHA NEW NORMAL 2012-2013 BUH BYE…REMEMBER “ARE YOU THERE CHELSEA?”

  • ccc

    Vegas increases by almost a half a point after Parenthood leaves. Who would have thought that show was slowing it down. It doesn’t seem that they would share the same audience

    Go On and the New Normal are in SERIOUS trouble, especially if Whitney and Guys With Kids can do better tonight against the bigger power American Idol. Go On tied and the New Normal got beat by Happy Endings which is in BURNOUT mode on ABC….not good at all

  • jT

    new girl could pull 3.0s if it’s lead in pull 2.0s.

  • Oliver

    The Kimmel repeat did pretty well. Smart scheduling by ABC, especially since it also serves as free promotion for the show.

  • DenverDean

    Further proof that GO is a flop. It can’t even hold on to BW’s audience, which is against much tougher NCIS.

  • Z

    The overrated The Middle will probably get go down when they show it tomorrow.

  • s0303

    looks like fox made the right decision axing ben and kate…new girl at the best ratings its had in awhile…mindy project beat raising hope:)

    go on and new normal should be cancelled…

  • Steph

    Yay for NCIS & NCIS: LA =)

  • Billy

    Go On is doing awful without The Voice lead in. NBC needs The Voice back soon.
