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.

    Dixie notched 0.6 last week, NOT 0.7.

  • Oliver

    I think Goon’s ratings are too low for even a pity renewal. I doubt it’s cheap to make and there’s no way it’s hitting syndication to recoup its production costs.

  • Perdix

    NBC executives are allergic to tv ratings until The Voice returns. :)

  • tv_viewer

    It is time for Matthew Perry to face the music. A 91 year old woman is a bigger television star than Matthew Perry in 2013.

  • JacobYates

    If Vegas can hold those ratings next week, then it definitely has a shot at renewal

  • Mark

    @Brian J

    “As awful as last night’s numbers were, they will almost certainly rise when “The Voice” returns”

    Go On and TNN still have 4 Tuesdays Voice-less. I’m very afraid of these days…

    Anyway, NBC should have saved the second half of the seasons until The Voice had came back. They hadn’t been #1 on Tuesdays for a long time and now they had the right combo, they throw it away by premiering the shows in January. Bad, bad choice.

  • Judi

    That was one of the most boring NCIS episode last night.

  • Abc123

    CBS once again steamrolls the night. NCIS with another very solid night, and nearly 22 million viewers. Nice to see LA bounce back, and Vegas notch upwards.

    NBC needs the Voice… their Tuesday’s are dreadful right now. ABC also not looking too hot last night.

    FOX had an O-K night, with New Girl rising a bit too.

  • I Love TV!

    Finally NEW GIRL!

  • Anon

    @ Z

    The Middle is a repeat this week (“The Safe”).

  • Mon

    Vegas is still dead or maybe will be on summer next year. It can’t even crack a 2.0 without competition and with a healthy lead-in. CBS needs this time slot for the NCIS spin-off.

  • John A

    What 1.6 isnt much of a lead in to New Girl.

  • Mrs. Angela Lansbury

    My darling Betty once again outshining those young whippersnappers on a show with a miniscule budget. Betty gives the most bang for the pound!

  • Lauren

    @TimsDale4ever Sure! Cause you can judge a show seeing it just 15 minutes without knowing characters or history *roll my eyes*

  • John A

    Lets see how Suburgatory does with no lead in. 1.8 at best.

  • yujin

    yah! Vegas up! Hopefully it can hit 2.0 soon.

  • MichaelChickless

    Decent for the NCIS twins, and good for New Girl. Vegas may have a pulse!

  • Clarke

    Will NBC really stoop so low to renew a show that has gotten a 1.1 demo rating? This number is now the new normal

  • JacobYates

    @mon
    You’re right. There is no place for Vegas on a Tuesday lineup with its current ratings. However, if Vegas can rise next week and win its time period, it could go to Sunday, Friday, or even summer like you said.

  • DougF

    Raising Hope should really be two numbers not one. As it was two entirely separate episodes
