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 baseball 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.

    LOL AT REVENFLOP!

    ABC SPENT SO MUCH MONEY PROMOTING THAT CRAP FOR NOTHING. THERE IS NO GRAMMY EXCUSE NOW.
    THESE NUMBERS MAKES THAT HORRIBLE ALIEN COMEDY THEY AIR ON WEDNESDAYS LOOK LIKE A HIT.

    NEXT SEASON REVENFLOP WILL MOVE TO 10PM AND WILL MAKE ABC MISS 666 PARK AVENUE
    AND THEN IT WILL BE GONE.

    BY THEN SCANDAL WILL REIGN AS THE NUMBER ONE DRAMA ON ABC.

    SORRY REVENGERS. YOUR BELOVED SHOW IS A FLOP. HUGE DESAPPOINTING. ABC IS REGRET TO INVEST ON THAT CRAP. ACCEPT THAT.

    WHO BORN EMILY THORNE WILL NEVER EVER EVER BE OLIVIA POPE.

  • Max

    Wow, what an amazing rebound for REVENGE? LOL. (sarcasm intended folks)

    So, what is the excuse those REVENGERS would like to play this week?

    Walking Dead? Audience erosion because fans missed last week’s episode and are still catching up? A wrestling event on pay-per-view?

    Just face it. REVENGE, at this point, will never recover. The move to Sunday was a mistake and sophomore slump doesn’t even begin to do justice to what the show has become.

    Of course, no new episodes until a March 10th “Spring” premiere and once Spring is finally here in full force, we are going to see those mid 1’s on a consistent basis. I really do believe ABC will have serious discussions on whether or not to renew this show.

    With the Oscars next Sunday, I hope ABC gives tons of promotion to their actual guilty pleasure hit, SCANDAL. It is the break-out star of ABC’s television season and deserves just as much promotion as the non-hit REVENGE received. Go SCANDAL.

    Sorry REVENGERS. :)

    Revenge slowly going back up. :D

    Pathetic ratings for The Good Wife.

  • Blake

    How sad when not a single show on broadcast networks in the middle of February goes above 2.4 on Sunday night.

  • Max

    LOL @ REVENGE.
    Pathetic numbers again. Sorry REVENGERS, cancellation is just a matter of time now. Mark my words. There WON’T be a third season.
    In the meantime SCANDAL has yet to hit its peak. I told you this would happen but no one wanted to listen. Scandal has at least three seasons left in it.
    So long, Revenge. :D

  • Tom

    Pretty poor ABC numbers.

  • eridapo

    OUAT 2.2 7.28/ 2.4 7.73
    Revenge 1.8 6.09/ 1.8 5.89

    TAR 2.5 9.81/ 2.4 9.27
    TGW 1.5 8.79/ 1.3 8.17
    TM 1.4 9.09 / 1.5 9.27

  • AJ

    Looks like ABC indeed killed their Sunday shows.

  • danny94

    Great to see Revenge up, Amazing episode last night!!!!!! :)

  • bAUERR

    Lol Max just shut up. Revenge will rebound but it won’t happen in one week.

  • Shepherd

    Burn baby burn. DISCO INFERNO! Burn baby burn.

  • Paul

    The Good Wife. :( Please CBS – spare it. :(

  • Glue

    Um… Scandal was always at a 1.8… Always. Now it’s what revenge was. Don’t be a hypocrite max.

  • Annie Orhan

    lol, so funny Max, Max and Max’s alter ego Paris all slamming Revenge…

    You people are pathetic…..

  • reward

    I can not believe revenge and ouat had these results.
    I really dont understand.
    These show are f****** amazing.

  • AJ

    However of course OUAT and Revenge will be renewed.

  • Lewis

    So low ratings on Sunday!

    Revenge and OUAT rising!

    Jajaja Max. Its still getting Renewed! So Sorry Gladiators!

  • Petar Ivanov

    CBS should change all sunday shows. Its their worst day and looks like friday ratings now.

  • Bookworm

    Welp.

    OUAT and Revenge did not bounce back. I am disappointed by OUAT since I guessed it would be between a 2.7-2.8 (I think) but Revenge was lower than what I assumed at 1.8.

    Way too optimistic for both.

    OUAT has to get out of this slump because I can’t see it surviving in the lower 2.0’s. Only high 2.0’s and lower 3.0’s are acceptable for this show.

    I did call Revenge not leaving the 1.0’s for another episode or two.

    Ouch. Has ABC killed its Sunday lineup?
