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.

    The Voice just goes up and up and up. Egads.

    Wow at those CBS comedy numbers. How the mighty have fallen…I mean, 2 Broke Girls at a 2.3? Mike and Molly at a 2.2? Did I miss something or did these shows just have a huge drop tonight?

  • Samuel

    HOLY VOICE, BATMAN!

  • Juan

    Ouch at CBS and fox

  • glover

    WOW, what happened to CBS?

  • Dillan

    The Voice is doing so well!

    I guess that’s not bad for Oh Sit, but I can see it dropping next week.

  • zth

    2.3 for an original of Two Broke Girls?

    Wow, The Voice destroyed all the CBS Monday Comedy block. Although the big tragedy fro yesterday had a big effect in the low rating of comedies, for sure.

    But the Voice keeps going up. It is simply AAZING. Where are the people who predicted it will be soon in the 3s or that it will go down once the battle rounds are here?

  • MichaelChickless

    Is ‘Terror in Boston’ going to be renewed for the Fall season?

  • Agnes

    CBS in the toilet.

  • Stuart

    Weren’t the CBS comedies repeats last night?

  • forg

    Wow at The Voice

    Yikes series low for 2BG and M&M!

  • Jeff (Canada)

    @senor chang

    I’m betting people didn’t tune in because they figured most shows would be pre-empted due to them assuming the networks wanted media coverage of it. Should we add another excuse to the bingo card?

  • zth

    Maybe CBS was pre-empted and the news coverage had lower ratings?

  • Jeff (Canada)

    @senor chang

    I’m betting people didn’t tune in because they figured most shows would be pre-empted due to them assuming the networks wanted media coverage of the bombing. Should we add another excuse to the bingo card?

  • Billy

    I never thought I would CBS Mondays this low. Really bad.

  • Anyanka

    I’m sure a lot of people were watching the Boston coverage on other news channels. It’s understandable that would impact comedies more than reality competitions.

  • jjijojojojojojo

    Everyone was watching cable news channels. #prayforboston

  • zth

    @Stuart:

    No, they were all original.

  • Oliver

    I bet NBC is getting ready to announce a full-season pickup of “Terror in Boston” with those numbers.

  • bjssp

    Perhaps NBC should really consider trying to launch a comedy block on Mondays. CBS looks like it might be quite vulnerable, and nobody else is trying comedies there.

  • Billy

    The Big Bang Theory REPEAT got a 3.0 last Thursday. The CBS Monday sitcom ORIGINALS all got in the mid to low 2′s. That is really bad for CBS.
