Definitions:

DVR (Time-shifted) Adults 18-49 Ratings – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data LiveLive+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) ratings 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.

DVR Ratings Increase Past Airdate - How many people watched the show on their DVRs within 7 days following the airdate

Until the 2009-2010 season, we used a show's LIVE program rating or viewership as the base upon which the LIVE+7 day DVR viewing was added. Now, the press seems to be standardizing around using LIVE+SAME DAY DVR viewing as the base for the calculations, so that's what we do now as well.

    Yay The Middle

    In addition to DVR viewing, both Castle and Nashville have more than one oar in the water. Castle has books and Nashville has soundtracks and singles on ITunes

    @Nicofac

    “¤ 3×13 : Olelo Ho’Opa’I Make

    Still no rating Live+7 for this episode ?”

    I think it’s because it was a “special” episode; it aired on Sunday. And specials are excluded. Ratings would be interesting tho.

  • david

    Good to see SPN and TVD on the list.

  • Ryan

    Fox has high DVR viewership. They need to find a way to make these ratings count. Although it doesn’t really change anything.

  • M. Daly

    Where can I find the ratings of all the episodes of SyFy’s Being Human that have been shown for Season Three so far?

  • Nicofac

    @Miracle :

    Thanks for your answer ! :) It’s a pity :( ^^
