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.

    At least NBC is beating FOX on Fridays.

  • Mon

    Wow CBS. Well I think CBS saw this coming that’s why The Job wasn’t promoted at all, and CSI: NY/BLue Bloods were only promoted on Elementary. Not sure if they were promoted on repeats of NCIS: LA (Tues) and TBBT (Wed).

  • Holly

    CSI: NY dropped pretty hard. Not good for its prospects.

    Touch is a bomb. Even FOX can’t keep it at these numbers.

  • jack bauer

    They should just change Touch to 24…it would get monster ratings

  • Dan S

    Major ouch for Touch & NY. I guess this is truly the end for both shows. Wouldn’t surprise me to see CSI move to Fridays seeing how that show itself hit a series low on Wed. With Touch just about done maybe Kiefer can finally reprise his Jack Bauer role for the big screen.

  • Nick

    The separation between Malibu Country & LMS brcomes ever more apparent. I think 1 is getting renewed & the other canceled.

    CBS needs Undercover Boss back.

    Touch is 100% dead (as opposed to 99% dead). And Kitchen Nightmares actually didn’t do that bad this week!

  • rob60990

    Touch doing awful and its no surprise. It never should have gotten renewed.

    Man how bad was that CW movie to do worse than Nikita.

    Malibu Country is not coming back.

    The Job will be pulled Monday.

  • Blake Williams

    I echo the earlier comment…..cancel The Job or move it to Saturday night….It is hurting CSI:NY

  • matt

    CBS should save Good Wife/Mentalist and axe csi ny

  • matt

    The Job….The Flop

  • Marko DaKing

    Fringe >>>>>>> Touch

  • r0ckmypants

    @Brandy – CSI: NY is on at 9:00.

  • Petar

    CBS should put NCIS&POI reruns at 8 and 9 till may sleeps.

  • Shepherd

    I’ll say it again, Nikita will handily beat Touch before the season ends. At this rate it’s looking like week 4-5 (for Touch). It is a shame they wont actually go head to head.

    Last week, the comments for the Job were so negative I had to check it out. I didn’t last more than 5 minutes of ‘skip through’ time. Since when did becoming a glorified waitress constitute a dream job? The show is nothing but an infomercial disguised as a game show! Despite being absolutely terrible, I suspect it will stay on the air even when the ratings go lower.

    It looks like Touch and The Job are in a race to the bottom. Touch will win of course. I’m still waiting for the “how low can it go?” poll.


    Looks like anything not UB is not good for CBS @ 8:00

    More confident that NY will be canceled (go TGW!?)

    BB only safe bet for Fri (save UB)

    Not looking good for MC (as Reba would say–WHY?)

  • Petar


  • Cyrax86

    Malibu Country should be replaced by The Neighbors next season.

  • John A

    CSI NY has a crap lead in. TGW would get a 1.2 also if had a good lead in on friday.

  • brent

    How are the Paper Heart ratings compare to other CW movie airings?

  • POI

    LOL at Touch its a boring show but Fox killed the show in moving it to Fridays. The only things worth watching on Fridays are Nikita, LMS, MC, and Grimm although Grimm is on a Hiatus rite now. NBC should air Marathons for Both Grimm and Revolution before they come back from their breaks they should learn from AMC.
