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.

    I was confused cause by 2009 it was already the step child. And that was its first full 22 episode season and it was season 5 2010-11 (minus season 2 which was short cause of the strike). And the only reason it got the full order was due to contract stipulations. So that’s why I was confused. It’s had solid ratings its whole run and seems to have improved this past year or so.

    And I find it hard to believe M&M get buzz cause I never hear anything about it and it get about the same rating as RoE yet it’s been in that cushy time slot it’s whole run???

  • Mike

    I think 2BG and M&M lower numbers could be because of The Following, until now FOX was not competitive there.
    HIMYM did great and that helped ROE.
    H50 as always a waste there, that is why CBS will move it to Friday or Sunday. I think CBS is trying to air all the Originals they can before Revolution comes back, they know Hawaii cannot handle competiton unless is weak.

  • sara

    Sad if people are upset with The Following because of a kiss. I stopped watching because of the violence. People get offended by different things

    ————————————
    H50 got 2.3 demo ratings and 10 million viewers against Revolution mid-season finale. Also, Revolution cannot stand on its own, take away The Voice lead-in and this show will collapse.

    Carrie Diaries is safe for another season.

    90210, Flop of Dixie and Nikita MUST GO!

  • Blake

    It really says a lot about American culture if people have no problem with all the violence of The Following, but that they would even consider stop watching because two guys kissed each other!
    What are a significant number of Americans teaching their children?

  • WoWza

    Hmm. I wanted to watch The Carrie Diaries. Maybe I’ll give it a try. At these numbers it will be renewed… if it can stay at this level it will 100% deserve renewal.

  • Ultima

    @Ram510

    Bah, I meant 2010-11 for Rules’ last full season, not 2009-10.

    Presumably it didn’t get picked up for a full season in 2008-09 because they wanted a new sitcom on Monday and HIMYM and Men were locks and The Big Bang Theory obviously had massive potential.

    When they finally moved The Big Bang Theory away from Mondays and gave Rules of Engagement a full season in 2010-11, it performed well below the other comedies (ROE 2.9, HIMYM 3.4, M&M 3.4), so back to replacement status it went.

    Then last season, it was flat, but everything else was up.

    It says a lot less than the assumptions in that comment say about you.

    RoE did get some Superbowl promotion…I remember during the game and on days before it, they had the brightly-lit ads with David Spade and sometimes Megyn Price with the black under their eyes, along with the other Monday CBS stars, cheering and making “go team” gestures. Saw a LOT of those ads.

  • Kavyn

    This has to solidify 90210′s demise right? There’s no way a 0.4 is acceptable for 90210 when TCD had a 0.7, Even Emily Owens has better retention than that.

    While I get a quickie promo or two for a show just now returning, but it seemed to me CBS wasted a lot of potential revenue by having commercials for shows like NCIS and The Big Bang Theory.

  • geri

    I really like The Following.

  • sandy

    I am 66 years old and really mind that my age group doesn’t count as far as ratings are concerned!!! As far as I am concerned Bones’ is the best show on TV and last night was fantastic!!!!!

  • Brian

    Castle is Nothing without a Dancing With The Stars lead in… Needs to be cancelled!
