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.

    8.88 million viewers for TGW? lol. Demo is horrible but thank god it got renewed. That was a good episode last night.

  • Winston

    At least OUAT is number two for a really bad night…..press release soon.

  • Simon

    At least the show seems to have settled into the 2.1 – 2.3 range, expected it to be adjusted up in the finals as usual though. Before the doom and gloomers come in, Once Upon a Time will still be renewed.

  • s0303

    tgw is my favorite show…too bad more people aren’t watching :( apprentice did pretty good for nbc…

  • Markitos

    TGW needs another time slot. It’s a shame, it’s my best tv show.

  • Charmed

    ABC has destroyed OUAT with all the damn hiatuses :(

  • Simon

    Shouldn’t Once Upon a Time be after The Amazing Race on the table?

  • Douglas from Brazil

    There’s no way that Once will be up as was in the fall.Mid-season schedules hurt the show so much.ABC stupid as always.

  • Lisa

    The Good Wife must skew dinosaurs.

  • Mika

    lol OUAT. Worst show on TV

  • forg

    OK I guess for the Hallmark of Hall Fame, still better than ABC will get with repeats

  • Charmed

    People, don’t you realise that 18-49 isn’t everything? TGW does great in total viewers.

  • Ram510

    Guessed it right for OUAT, however it’ll probably adjust up to a 2.2

    I hope ABC has better luck next season with its Sunday schedule/retention. They have some of the best shows on Sunday!

  • Mon

    So much for The Good Wife increasing after The Walking Dead, The Bible, Downton Abbey etc end.

  • DSC

    there’s no way the show won’t be on next season, if there was any doubt there’s a spin off of the show coming next year. what’s interesting is that most shows seem to have settled into mid to high ones. a few years ago these would be cancelled, now most of these are or will be renewed.

  • Lisa

    I am sorry scheduling didn’t hurt the show. The writing and the horrible acting did, minus Regina and Rumple. They should’ve of waited until season 2 to break the curse. Much more story to tell in fairytale world that was lost in this.

  • SJ

    Series low for Once Upon a Time. That’s what you get, ABC… spectacularly bad scheduling always comes with a price.

    What’s the point of HHOF movies? CBS cancelled them for a reason.

  • Ashley

    That’s really not looking good for OUAT. Sunday is looking pretty bad.

  • were123

    Poor OUAT, I really hoped it would do better. I expect it to be adjusted up, but a 2.2 is still weak for what it used to drae :(

  • Carmen

    The Voice does not repeat well, which shouldn’t be (isn’t?) a surprise to NBC.

    That NBC’s Sunday line up includes 2 hours of a singing show repeat really underscores the pathetic shape that the network (NBC) is really in.
    They should be able to muster up something else for this night.
