Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2013 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.


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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    Aw Nikita fell.

  • John A

    Lol Nikita back down. So those few new viewers last week didnt stick around.

  • CBSviewer

    Good for CBS :)

  • Dan

    I guess no additional episodes this season for Last Man Standing and Malibu Country.

  • s0303

    abc should move shark tank back to 8pm to help the comedies…malibu country will be gone if it doesn’t improve…

  • Just

    Nikita is the queen of the CW

  • Olka

    Nikita no :(

  • Ethan

    People please watch Nikita…best show n th cw by FAR.

  • Dave

    Nikita did better than I thought it would. Great episode last night btw.

    CBS finally performing solid. If Golden Boy flops, CSI:NY might just live for another season.

  • Dan

    Nikita is still getting renewed. CW needs something to lead off Fridays next season. If Beauty and the Beast gets renewed, maybe that will follow.

  • Sam

    Wow, sorry to bring this up again but… for the first time in about 4 years I can say… I could not care less what the Friday night ratings are. Many good Friday shows are gone now…

  • Ram510

    Aw man Nikita is down. But I’m sure it’ll be up the next coming weeks. It has no breaks and the story will get better.

  • John A

    CSI NY deserves 1 more season. Decent ratings for a 9 yr old show.

  • Dani

    Damn. Really hope Nikita would stay up. But then a .4 is still good enough. Not great, but at least it’s better than a .3

  • Brandy

    Ram, Nikita is preempted Feb 15 and I think will still have a week or two break later on.


    Don’t like the fact that unscripted again won 8-10 & tied @ 10:00

    Hopefully the return of “Grimm” & more uptick for BB can reverse the trend

    GO CBS!

  • rob60990

    Shark Tank got a 2.0 in its last episode on jan 11.

    Last Man Standing skewing older and older.

  • Dennis

    If they showed the rerun of TCD at 8 it probably would have gotten the same numbers as Nikita. The CW should schedule reruns on Fridays – would do about the same, cost less/give them some $$$ to put into shows that get some viewers.

  • may

    9/14 comments about Nikita at this moment. I believe in season 4-

  • Shepherd

    I can’t believe the Image awards got a .8. It looks like 2/3 or the audience were either old, and tuned in out of habit, or too young to know what crappy television is.
    Sad to see Nikita down, but not unexpected to see it back at .4.

    It’s probably the only Ramsey show I’ve never seen, but has the quality of KN plummeted this season, or was the drop this week due to competition? It seems like the mid 1’s are down from last season already, a 1.0 is just pathetic for a Ramsey show anyway. Maybe people have just grown tired of him?

    I’m still surprised at how poorly The Following repeats considering the popularity of the originals.
