On NBC, The Voice earned a  season high 4.9 adults 18-49 rating, up two tenths from last week's 4.7 adults 18-49 rating. Revolution scored a 2.3, up a tenth from last week's series low 2.2 among adults 18-49.

On ABC, Dancing with the Stars earned a season low 2.0, down two tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.  This is the lowest-rated performance telecast ever

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    When is DWTS going to make changes? I know that The Voice doing well is one of the main reasons for low ratings, but I think the show is so beyond stale and I cannot watch at least 3-4 of the pros they have front and center every season.

  • TVMAN

    ALSO must say great for The Following, it’s getting good! But the show depicts the FBI as some stupid organization of 3 people… A 2.2 is great considering the 1.1 lead in. While Revolution gets a 2.3 with almost a 5.0 lead in…

    The voice and dancing with the stars
    are yet unsurprisingly scientology show. Same ratings. Scientology truly entertains America well.

    I don’t think I’ve seen a 7.5 before, except maybe Superbowl. Although it was probably higher.

    :lol: The Super Bowl pulled a 39.7 A18-49 rating this year, so yeah, I guess you could say it was “probably higher” than 7.5!

    I have to say this episode of Revolution was one of the few to garner more of my attention than just denigrating it. Since Elizabeth Mitchell started to get screen time, the show has improved just by her presence and acting skill.

    This week they actually tried to EXPLAIN the phenomena of the electricity outage: it turns out it’s nanotechnology. Then they compounded the stupidity by Mitchell claiming “we’re breathing it in”, forgetting that the human body runs on electricity and we’d all be dead if that were true. Not to mention the idea that nanotech could “absorb electricity” as if it were a liquid in violation of the laws of physics. But I give them credit for finally at least TRYING to explain the incredibly stupid premise.

    The fight scenes were pathetic as usual, with all the militia soldiers armed with assault rifles brilliantly jumping out from behind cover to be cut down by idiots with bows. The director should be banned from ever working in television again.

    On The Following, the record of “stupid FBI tricks” continues with the three-man team breaking up one by one to insure that Carroll’s three-man team gets the drop on all of them. Pathetic. Otherwise it wasn’t bad, and it’s good to see the show may have stabilized in the ratings somewhat.

    Considering ‘Castle’ was up against the ‘CBS Basketball Finals’ I think it did rather well. Though it doesn’t mean anything, pulling over 7 million viewers with such competition, is fantastic.
