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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Ha! Touch is a bust!

  • Dillan

    I don’t even know what Paper Heart is, but wow it did awful.

    I can’t see MC getting renewed with these ratings.

  • JohnyM

    Muhaha CSI NY withou Nikita lead in is such a flop. No I’m confident that Nikita is in a lock for renewal.

  • glover


  • fringewillget5seasons

    LMAO Touch doing worse than Fringe in its final season. See ya.

  • JacobYates

    Blue Bloods grew off of CSI NY? That’s embarrassing. Certain cancellation is around the corner for CSI NY.

  • Fan

    Please CBS cancel The Job It’s killing CSI: NY

  • JacobYates

    What are you talking about?

  • Shana

    Nikita got saved from this massacre… thank you dear CW!!!

    Good day …

  • DenverDean

    Things will only get worse for CBS. Next week is CSI:NY last episode. TJ will be pulled this week. Who knows probably UB repeats? GB will flop hard.

  • k:Alex

    NBC must start the show ‘The Voice Kids’, so the weeks without ‘The Voice’ have good ratings too.
    Except some shows, all the ratings are down this week.

  • Hi



    Nikita is CW, CSINY is CBS. What is your point???

  • Brandy

    @JohnnyM, Nikita isn’t CSINY leadin, they’re on different networks and both on at 8pm

  • John A

    Touch 0.7 is awful. Fringe should have had a full season. It would do no better probably but it be something for me to watch on friday. Its a wastland now.

  • Loey

    Is there something wrong? Last episode is really a big gun and rating is only 1.2? Somebody must be joking!

  • omabin

    Dear CW,

    Thank you very much for not having aired Nikita in the massacre that was last night.

    Seriously, what a collapse. Only shows that did ok were Shark Tank and LMS (and even these were on the lower-end of their typical ranges) and Blue Bloods, which held very well at 10pm despite CSI NY’s collapse.

  • Dave

    I’m kinda happy Nikita didn’t air last night.

  • omabin

    I really think Elementary is a good bet for this night. It should be able to do high 1s at 9pm and it will not do better than it is doing now on weekdays, so it should come here and be useful for the network.

  • s0303

    job should be pulled immediately…not good for csi ny…

    touch :(

    i doubt malibu country is going to be renewed…

  • regina taylor

    I thought Malibu Country was really good last night. It gets funnier every week and the writing has improved. I hope ABC gives this show a chance. It has a good cast,they have good on screen chemistry and the more they work together, the better they get. I do not understand how LMS and ST continue to rate. What do people do? Turn their tv off for the 30 minutes MC is on?
