In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday night:



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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    @JacobYates – They barely made an effort to let people know Goodwin Games was on the air. They won’t mention it ever again.

  • #Fact

    The Voice needs Christina Aguilera back, seriously. She made the show what it was, because every week when she was on there would be some controversy about something she did, said, wore etc.

    Christina Aguilera = The Voice.

  • rob60990

    “Thursday at 8:30 after The Big Bang Theory.”

    So they think people on OK are over the tornado 10 days later. lol. Like I said, postponing this episode was ridiculous and even more so now.

  • JacobYates

    Raising Hope rerun is FOX’s highest rated program of the night, in total viewers and the demo. It’ll be a juggernaut next year!

  • chrisss

    @ JacobYates

    Fox cancelled The Goodwin Games months ago, when they shut down production.

  • JacobYates

    For once I agree with you.

  • JacobYates

    @r0ckmypants & chrisss

    Thanks for the clarification.

  • Derek

    Revolution was great last night, too bad I missed the first few minutes, For me, it’s issue is that there is NOTHING else I like on Mondays so I end up popping in a movie or on the XBox…and last nights game went a bit long :p Looking forward to it’s new time slot where I dont have to kill time before it starts.

  • Rob R

    The Voice no better than American Idol now.

  • charmedcraft

    “this site needs spell check or an EDIT button!”

    They should also have a reply button like YT and FB, so the replies are not all over the place.

  • CeeKay

    Finally got to see Goodwin Games last night. It did not completely suck. It’s really too bad that nobody’s watching; it had a certain charm and potential.

  • ethan

    Revolution top scripted show of the night! And it stayed the same even thought he voice went down!

  • ateofi

    H50 repeats better than RoE, 2BG and Mike & Molly. Interesting. Revolution is flat despite lack of competition. The voice is still strong. I have read Christina is coming back next season.

  • catsrule

    @ TV viewer

    When is CBS going to air the season finale of Mike and Molly (prempted because of Moore, Okla), where Molly says she is pregnant?

    CBSViewer: Thursday at 8:30 after The Big Bang Theory.

    Do you have a source or is that just where you think it should air?

  • ToXiX


    No the source is why don’t you check the damn schedule and see for yourself.
    And how about the promo for it that aired last night on cbs.

    I had to rewind my tv when I heard all new mike & Molly on Thursday

  • catsrule

    The Bachelorette had its lowest rated premiere ever! It’s time for this piece of garbage franchise to die.

  • lostboy

    Do you really think that the Voice and Revolution share the same audience.
    I think the viewers who watched Revolution last night will be the same viewers for the Finale. When will you people get a clue the Voice has not helped any of the shows that have aired after it. Yeah Revolution was rolling a long butchering the competiton for a good part of the season. NBC put a freshmen show on Memorial Day and now extended the show into June. Here’s hoping Dennis the Menace will COTS while I am LMAO at Revolutions’s Finale ratings. Yeah go Revolution stay steady.

  • ToXiX

    The Goodwin games episode seemed like it went by pretty fast.

    It definitely should have premiered in the fall of 2012 instead of Ben & Kate.

    Not to mention its so much better than B&K or TMP.

    Thank you Fox for at least airing this gem.

  • HalCapone

    TVBTN isn’t immune to sensationalizing the news either. While The Bachelorette season premier is indeed the lowest premier for the reality skein, the 1.9 rating matched the regular (a non-season premier episode) Memorial Day rating of last year. But, “It was the show’s lowest rated premiere ever” probably does galvanize fans and detractors of the show alike. For the record, I have never seen a single episode of The Bachelorette or The Bachelor, for that matter…and never will.

  • Kumar


    No it not better than Mindy Project! Mindy Kaling is Emmy nominee. Dont be ridiculus.
