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.

    I knew people would start realizing how BAD of a show REVOLUTION is. Its just nonsense. It was from the start and still is. I told everyone last Fall interest would start falling slowly but surely and boy has it fallen since its return. The storyline and writing is just really really awful. The whole premise of the show was weak to begin with, and not realistic or interesting. JMO.

  • Shawn

    The Following was GREAT LAST NIGHT…..it truly is an action packed, edge of your seat show! I am glad it is seeing dome success! Great acting and writing!

  • rgxx

    REVOLUTION – Come on! This is a good show! We need new neilson viewers!

  • rgxx

    The Following beat Revolution – wow -

  • Just Now

    @ALEX
    Thanks for the research. I agree with everything you said.

    I also truly believe that Charlie character turned a lot of viewers off. The hiatus has nothing to do with the ratings.
    The second half of the season is much better, I feel they have focused more on the ensemble of the cast and Charlie is growing on me. That because she has less lines and face time on the show. I am just hoping it does get renewed, the show get’s better with every episode, and man it is an awful lot like LOST right now. I don’t know if dvr ratings are taken in to consideration but the show gains nearly 3.5 million viewers when it comes to renewals.

    @Greg –

    we get it! you LOVE Revolution…

    The Voice is still kickin’! knowing that it is already The Battle Rounds. I hope that it would still get its 2nd season high during Knockout Rounds and its Live shows!

  • Psychic

    Can we all just agree that Revolution is awful?

  • TVMAN

    Yay for Following!! Last nights episode was INTENSE…. the show can get frustrating, but overall it’s my favorite new show this season

  • BIGBOY

    Now I’m no expert on these things but I have a theory – networks should stop running serialised programmes out of musical reality shows. Why ?

    Well I’m glad you asked.

    You might sample a serialised show at the start (As 4.0 rating did for Revolution) but if you dont get into it, you are gone and your lead in viewership at 9.58 is wasted.

    If you put a self contained crime drama on after (like Castle) then even if you aren’t that interested in it, the odds are you might dip in from time to time, particularly if your other preference is on a re-run.

    So the solution, NBC should put Chicago Fire on at 10 on Monday for two reasons

    It is a semi-self contained show
    It has shown signs of great potential and CBS displayed the effectiveness of this when they put CSI on after the then scorching hot Survivor

    Revolution isn’t going to grow at this stage. It is what it is. Give them Wednesday at 10 where even a 1.5 is progress.

  • POIFanatic

    @psychic: Yes, we can all agree Revolution is the best new offering from networks this season.

  • Antonio

    Just something to note: many DVRs did not record the new episode of Revolution last night. The DVR recognized it as a re-run due to the news program taking it’s place last week. This may have affected it’s viewership in both SD and the weekly DVR viewing than what it would have normally achieved.

  • Just Now

    @Psychic
    Can we agree that you clearly are not a Psychic, because some people like the show. I watched the Following I thought it was awful, not my cup of tea. Castle watched the show when it was called Moonlighting, H50 watched it when it was the original. I clearly think the people here on this website,t wan’t the show they like to succeed,, and maybe I am being Psychic really could care less what you think unless you have the power to renew or cancel a show.
    So lets agree if you don’t watch a show, how are you an expert at deciding what is awful or entertaining for others.

  • David Howell

    Apparently Rules isn’t such a hot utility player anymore. It’s gone. Although at least it’s proven it can get a 1.5 out of a 1.3 with every other network way ahead – means it could be a valuable show for NBC, whose #1 scripted show just got Castled to leave the network in check ;)

    @chrisss

    Harry’s Law avg. was 7.6 for the last (2nd) season. The demo got it canned of course, but had it been pulling over 10 mil it would not have been.

  • Leoben Conoy

    I swear it astounds me to NO end, how good people genuinely think The Following is. *SMH*

    I have been watching week after week after week, in the hopes that these final episodes would offer something a different. Some real ‘master’ plan…

    But no, what we get is nothing but the same old crap we’ve gotten the entire series: more pointless killing.

    So Joe? Your master plan was to have all these murderers hanging out and living it up in Murder Manison, only to what? Go to a High School gymnasium and just start killing people with axes?

    *yawn*

    Such a shame. Such a shame that a show this horrible, in writing, direction and acting, manages to pull such fantastic ratings. SIGH

    I just wish a really well acted, directed and writen horror show like Hannibal, could manage these ratings.

    Oh well. Rejoice I guess? The lowest common denominator wins again!

  • JONNYSBRO

    There is absolutely no way CBS moves big bang back to Thursday’s. I think honestly what they should do is move 2 broke girls after bbt they would be good combo. Keep how I met and move mike and Molly to 830 have a new show in 9 pm slot leading into two and half men.
