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.

    @Ryan Very classy response end sarcasm.

    My bad after seeing enough homophobes here responding about the show I just assumed thats why you said that about Ryan Murphy but no biggie Im not a fan of Glee and never have watched it only TNN so shrugs.

    Nope Im not the religious extremists and the masculine macho straight dudes who cant stand seeing 2 gay dudes in love or having a family are the ISSUE.

    Please dont even with that specially with me.

  • MikeyM

    New Normal is no good. If we wanted stereotypical gays we can watch Modern Family.

  • Martine

    Please stop saying the words secret circle or ringer. They simply were not viable shows. Even if there are no more shows available no one would watch them.

  • Martine

    The New Normal might be cancelled. Huh. I really don’t much care for gay shows, but I think I would watch Modern Family before the New Normal. I liked Cult, but there is no excuse for numbers like that.

  • Andrew

    @Martine that makes no sense if you have an issue with gay shows then you wouldnt watch either of them .

  • Apophis

    We were looking forward to Cult but it was so bad we only made it halfway through the pilot.

  • Sam

    Wow. Cult…
    Ringer never dropped THAT low + that was Cult’s series premiere. Just dreadful. Emily Owens and Cult couldn’t handle the horrible time slot that is Tuesday at 9. Ringer did better than both of them. Feel shame, the Cw. Feel shame.
