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.

Definitions:

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.

  • BH

    OUCH at Cult!

  • frodo

    Grimm, Shark Tank, Last Man Standing all did great.

  • touchsucks

    cult

  • Jarrod

    Go Nikita! I’m holding out with suspense for next week. #RescueAlex
    As for Cult, I laugh at it’s ratings. Cancelation is coming it’s and TCD way. Renewals for HOD and Nikita are coming!

  • DW

    way to go Grimm holding steady. golden boy’s 1.0 may have been hurt by announcing that it was moving to tuesday. that or its a lousy show which it is. :)

  • rob60990

    Very solid for Grimm despite Fashion Star bombing. Why did NBC bring this back? Its ratings after The Voice last yearwere not good.

    YES Shark Tank. :D

    Horrible for Golden Boy but not surprising.

  • PARIS

    LOL AT GRIMM NOT EVEN CLOSE TO #1 IN ITS TIMESLOT

  • Liam

    I thought Golden Boy was remaining on Tuesdays at 10.00pm and Vegas was moving to Fridays at 9.00???

  • Felipe

    Nikita! *-*

    half-hours, someone?

  • James

    Ok for Nikita at least its up! I honestly think it should have been higher because in my opinion Last nights episode of Nikita was by far the best of this season! Hopefully can get higher ratings next week! Man, at the end was amazing and an absolute spectacular cliff hanger! CW RENEW NIKITA NOW! PLEASE!

  • Olka

    Nikita :)

  • Nikitafan

    happy for nikita

  • Dillan

    I wonder when they’ll pull Cult from the schedule..

    Also, not bad for Nikita.

  • Brian

    Grimm’s still got it and after a long hiatus. They’ll adjust up of course. Why say low, when the ratings are bang on where they’re supposed to be?

    GO GRIMM :)
