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.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    In other words: TV viewers got a night off last night to go outside and experience real life.

  • BigBrotherFan

    HA! TASTE=FLOP!

  • The Cool Max

    Is this the first time Univision was #1?

  • RJ

    No one wants to listen to a liar talk for 40 minutes. No additional charges to the debt? Yeahhh.

  • Observer

    I almost forgot the SOTU was on, too busy watching local coverage of the Dorner situation in CA.

  • Shanna

    Max Go to sleep …

  • MichaelChickless

    Someone needs to tell Rubio to stop touching his head when speaking. And his water moment was truly odd.

  • Timmy G

    Cw should have ran a new HOD last night, the movie rated better than 90210

  • The Real Max

    Revenge sucks, but so do I!

  • gerry

    don’t know as this is really a political forum RJ, but if you you want to look at debt increases by presidents, check reagan and the bushes.

  • David

    Max I love you abc please cancel revenge

  • Shepherd

    A repeat on CW did nearly as well as some originals probably because it was the only broadcast alternative to the sotu. I expect cable numbers to be up as well.
    I still don’t understand why every network feels the need to waste an hour of commercial free programming on a yearly basis. Who pays for this airtime anyway? Taxpayers? Is there some kind of FCC rule in play here?

  • Potato

    Talking about Revenge… on a Wednesday. Yup. Seems about right.

  • Jake

    No Max. You suck.

  • Rebecca

    Didn’t watch anything except old 30R episodes on Netflix. And for once I have no Tuesday comedies to stream online today, save for Cougar Town.

  • John A

    Boring night. Im only intersested to see how PLL and TLG did.
