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.

    The drop for The Following was expected but that’s still a great rating.

  • Jane

    I guessed The Following’s rating correctly :)

  • Dude

    I have to assume The CW had some pre-emption. Those numbers will come crashing down.

  • halloween

    die 90210

  • vincentdante

    Judging by the irate fans, it will be interesting to see Five-O’s ratings next week. Having never viewed the “fan page” before last night, I was amazed at the vitriol spewed against the dialogue spoken by Scott Caan. In fairness, this was not part of the original script…

  • SueK

    Inordinately proud for Bones.

  • Justin

    Great to see The Carrie Diaries rise. I would like it to come back next year, even if it were again as a midseason replacement. The Following is still doing pretty well and only dipped from its second week rise.

  • Revenge

    TCD will go down for sure.
    :)

    Robin Sparkles > Stripper pole ad

  • Billy

    The following did very well considering it had full competition. FOX has a keeper here.

  • BigBrotherFan

    NBC needs to take care of DO NO HARM and THAT FLOP the New Normal and the sinking GO ON not to mentioned THE EPIC BOMB that will be SMASH tonight.

    …I think they have more worries than the 11-episodes the got of DECEPTION

  • DW

    i dont know why the networks keep doing this. putting 2 disturbing shows on at the same time. by putting the following and 2 broke girls on at the same time your hurting both of them to succeed. :)

  • Mon

    So much for “CBS Super Monday.” HIMYM did fantastic. 2 Broke Girls and the rest did ok.

  • KT

    There has to have been a pre-emption for TCD. Those numbers are too high.

    Still solid numbers for The Following, considering much steeper competition this week. I really need to start watching.

    Surprised ROE premiered so well.

  • Chris

    Horrible ratings for Castle. And that’s with Deception at NBC–what’s going to happen when Revolution returns? Back down to last place. And series-lows. :D

  • Daniel

    Go The Carrie Diaries! I’m so glad it’s putting up a fight! If it holds the 0.6s and .7s, I can see it getting renewed. Plus word of mouth might be helping the show grow. If the ratings hold, I can see it having more chances than BaTB, which should get canceled because I think it’s terrible and it does poorly with a big lead-in. It would flop even more if moved. The Carrie Diaries is a selfstarter, so a 0.7 or even a 0.6 (if it gets adjusted down) is good!

    The Following might be going the Alcatraz path soon.

  • Sarah

    Castle would have been cancelled if it’s on CBS.

  • hahaha

  • Data

    Good for FOX. Now if only the show itself wouldn’t be so god damn silly.

  • cas

    I sense some adjustments coming tomorrow…
