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.

    Castle > Hawaii FLOP-0

  • Kourt

    Awesome numbers for Castle.

  • Dillan

    TCD :( I’m hoping for an upward adjustment.

  • Jane

    lol@TCD. And 90210? OMG!

  • Oliver

    A 0 share for 90210!

    Surely they must cancel it this season?

  • jean

    Considering the Bachelor was almost cancelled a few years ago and Mondays is the youngest skewing night for CBS, this is pretty embarrasing for them.

  • rob60990

    The Bachelor is on FIRE for ABC. It’s their only bright spot on schedule right now.

  • Jeff (Canada)

    HIMYM was CBS’s highest rated show of the night, good job! It was a great episode too. The Captain!!

    Hawaii Five-0 is in trouble. Ship it off to Friday nights next season. It would have done great on Tuesdays paired up with NCIS and NCIS LA but now it’s too late for that to happen.

  • Julia

    CW!!!! :O

  • zth

    The Following rebounded big time!! Last night’s episode was one of the best hour of television in recent years!

  • Ashley

    Seriously, cancel 90210, for the love of God lol

  • Hmm

    Yay Castle!! That episode was fantastic, Nathan Fillion was amazing! Can not wait for the second part next week!

  • SJ

    The Bachelor is on fire this season!

    Great for Castle and The Following!

    LOL at 90210!

    Good rebound for The Following

  • John A

    Nice to The Following rise. Shuts up the idiot haters anyway. Good for Castle. Lol 9021 numbers just get worse and worse.

  • PARIS

    LOL AT 90210

  • Jane

    The Bachelor is doing really well for ABC.

  • Sarah

    Bones :( But hopefully it adjusted up.

  • Emma

    Will people finally admit Castle needs a leadin? It’s no surprise it rises after the Bacholor hits highs.
