FOX was number 1 in adults 18-49 while CBS was on top with Total Viewers.

On FOX,  American Idol notched a 2.9 adults 18-49 rating down 9 percent from last week's 3.2. However, the show ran two minutes over, so its ratings are likely to go up in the final ratings, Glee earned a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating down 8 percent from last week’s 2.4.

On ABC, Wife Swap garnered a 1.5 up 7 percent from last week's 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.

On NBC, Community earned a 1.3 up 8 percent from last week's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Parks and Recreation scored a 1.7  up 13 percent from last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating but down 11 percent from The Office’s 1.9 in the time period. A second episode also garnered a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating, up 13 percent from last week’s 1.5, and up a huge 55 percent from Go On’s 1.1 in the time period last week . Hannibal notched a 1.4, down 18 percent from last week’s 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too optimistic.

On the CW, The Vampire Diaries scored a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating, down 25 percent from a 1.2 on March 28. Beauty And The Beast earned a 0.6 among adults 18-matching its performance on March 28.

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.

    OMG, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES!

    OMG, HANNIBAL! PLEASE GO BACK UP!

  • KarenM

    Second place for Hannibal against PoI’s very good. PoI reruns always do really well.

  • Ellen

    Ouch Hannibal…

  • Douglas from Brazil

    I didn’t expect to see Hannibal falls against repeats,that’s awful!

  • AlanJ

    Glee Was good last night still dont see how TBBT Beat it as a repeat!wel done for Parks and recs

  • Ash

    Hannibal couldn’t even beat a repeat of POI. So much for it being a ‘hit’.

  • were123

    Hannibal down, not out! 1.4 is acceptable for Thursdays at 10 PM. We’ll know for sure next week. If it holds, it’s a keeper, if it doesn’t…

  • The Guy

    LOL@2BG. It got a 0.2 higher rating for a new episode on Monday than the repeat.

  • Eric Robinson

    Get the hell back up Hannibal!

  • Sheldon Hooper

    Big Bang Theory is a monster!

  • iMember

    I think CBS should consider putting Big Bang Thoery at the 9PM hour. It seems to do better there.

  • KarenM

    Damn it, NBC! The first show I’m addicted to on your network in a long time and you better not cancel it.

  • Robsten_Fan

    Opps.. TVD… :(

  • Ram510

    Not too bad for P&R. Still don’t know what to think of Hannibal, if I had to guess I would think NBC would renew it and give it a real chance in the fall

  • mike

    No PoI does poorly in repeats…HORRIBLe for Hannibal., Another Thurs 10pm mess for NBC

  • Ed B

    WOW. BATB kept its 0.6 from 3 weeks ago even though lead in TVD plummeted down to 0.9. I guess BATB isn’t as lead in dependant as most of you thought. Hello season 2 renewal.

  • KarenM

    I’m looking at the glass half full instead of half empty for Hannibal. Second place for NBC in that slot’s very good. ;)

  • Jared

    Great to see BATB steady this week. Last nights episode was amazing!

  • jean

    HANNIBAL is down! YES!!!!! THE SHOW IS DEAD! YAY!! DOWN DOWN DOWN DOWN

  • starship

    And just like that BATB earned its renewal.
