Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2013 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

Definitions:

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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    Another 0.2 for Nikita? LMAO. No wonder CWT didnt want a full season.

  • CrimTV

  • Charmed

    Haha Nikita!

  • NBC Fan

    Blue Bloods skews so OLD.

  • Felipe Nikita

    No Nikita! Stop 0,2

  • Reache

    CBS Friday collapse…

  • Charmed

    Rock Center should be second not third, it beat Blue Bloods.

  • John A

  • Felipe Nikita

    Nikita was AMAZING last night

  • Ric

    Nikita was SO good last night. This is ridiculous.

  • rob60990

    Horrible night for all shows except Shark Tank, Undercover Boss, and 20/20.

    Another .2 for Nikita. :D

  • FringeFan

    Why did they cancel Rock Center again? Those seem like decent ratings for a Friday considering they beat multiple network dramas that cost more to produce.

  • TheFrenchGuy

    CBS will regret CSI: NY’s cancelation. Blue Bloods is very low even for Friday.

  • Melissa

    NIKITA is always AMAZING, the most important is that Nikita is already renewed for forth season..Thanks CW.

  • Melissa

    The half-hours for 20/20 are 1.7/1.7. Sorry for the typo!

  • Melissa

    It’d be interesting to see some A25-54 figures for Blue Bloods.

  • sylvie
