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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Repeats don’t play a roll in renewal. And obviously repeats are going to do bad bc a lot of people hate watching the same episode and/or a huge music awards was on last night

    So, little buddy, just how long have you been a snob?

    Apprentice will adjust up most likely and next week goes back to two hours next week, so ratings will go up. This show is my guilty pleasure.

    I gotta say, ABC is probably not on their right minds deciding not to air OUAT and Revenge against the Academy of Country Music Awards. Or least one of them on their own. Doesn’t sound like an ABC schedule at all…

    Did I miss something in the article? I don’t think they mentioned who the other network was.

    I have cable so it wouldn’t bother me one way or the other but it just occured to me that Fox could go and I wouldn’t miss it one bit. OK, I would miss Raising Hope but that’s it.
