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.

    btw, I wonder what they will do with the president next season on revolution. Earlier in the season, nora made a reference to Joe Biden, so i’m guessing the Obama administration was in office at the time of the blackout…its 16 years later, but i doubt there have been any actual elections since the blackout…so unless Obama decides to make a guest appearance(hey, he does it on the late night shows all the time), then I wonder how they will explain the legitamcy of whoever is now the president…

    Good for Revolution’s Finale. Not bad for a syfy show on a major network. I really enjoyed it.
    I guess I was not expecting anything spectacular ( ratings wise) considering
    most people are on vacation and it is summer time. I think Revolution is steady 1.9/2.0 at 10pm. I am so happy no more waiting around for the show to start at 10pm. I am so happy that they moved Revolution to an early time slot on Wednesday nights, hopefully more people will watch Revolution live. I am looking forward to S2. I wonder if Revolution is so serialized like LOST/Revenge/Dallas it’s much better for the viewer to keep up with the show, with all the twist and turns. That’s how I watched the Bates Motel on a Marathon rainy weekend.

  • K


    Revolution is. Monroe and Miles are going to be together in some capacity, since Miles is the only person Monroe really cares about. I see friction between Miles and Rachel next season, especially since she let that guy get into the room and set off the missiles.

  • gerry

    nice for revolution finale. hopefully it can rest around 2.0 for next season.

    lower for mistresses than i thought, but bach was also lower, so that probably explains some of that. that’s a decent enough number for a summer show if it can hold on to the 1.2 without much of a drop next week.

  • Janus

    @MC–thanks, yes Rev on Wednesdays. I think it will be solid for NBC and survive.

  • lostboy

    Spoiler alert.

    However the silhoutte looked like Ben Affleck or Michael Vartan. I don’t think O’bama administration responsible,for the Black out. I tried to rewind to see all the photos of Presidents in the bunker, there is one above Obama could not recognize. I think the black out takes place after 2016 for some reason. Just a thought.

  • pinkie

    Mistresses is a lot better than Desperate Housewives.Really its true.those who did not watch it missed a lot of fun.i feel sorry for those one million moms who are nothing but crackheads.

  • Freddy Arrow

    A lot of people seem to think that Mistresses didn’t do very well. 1.2 for a summer show seems like decent ratings to me. I can’t imagine ABC was expecting a lot more. I don’t think Unforgettable will do much better. Speaking of Unforgettable, what’s CBS plan with it? Not starting until late July means it will run into the season. I guess they plan on a fall show starting later than usual?

  • lostboy

    I didn’t think Rachel let Randall in the room he had his own key card. I agree about Mile/Monroe Bromance. I think the writers will add some friction to the whole Miles/Rachel love and baby Charlie connection.

  • Stephen

    About what I thought for Mistresses – since it’s summer the show will likely air all eps even if it drops some in future weeks.

    Revolution probably be mid 1s for S2 premiere and then likely drop to low 1s by end of the fall. If it premieres higher than a 2.0 I’ll be shocked.

  • gerry

    lets all keep in mind that tcd was running repeats all over the place while it was originally airing and its summer. its repeats of repeats aren’t going to be a ratings winner.

  • Dennis


    I AGREE.

    Revolution, season 2 premiere…. 1.7 in the demo..
    week 2 falls to 1.3 in the demo

  • Cass

    How CW make money? Its shows are pretty poor in ratings…. Have been wondering for months

    As someone said earlier, they are a content network. The CW is a partnership between CBS and WB, which means all shows they air are owned by one or both of the in-house production studios. Even though they have more or less cable channel ratings (the brass have admitted that they lose money on the network outright since ad rates are much lower for them), they claim to make up costs through DVD sales, syndication, foreign markets, streaming and so on.

    Essentially, so long as the shows aren’t doing catastrophically ratings-wise thereby severely depressing ad rates to the point they might as well air cheaptastic reality shows, the network is fine with taking a hit and recouping later.

  • Cass

    Good for Revolution’s Finale. Not bad for a syfy show on a major network. I really enjoyed it.

    Oh dear god, the SyFy Channel’s rebranding efforts appear to have worked. People call science fiction/sci-fi SYFY now??

    @Ivana pee (aka Petar – The POI mad one)

    BoP isn’t ABC’s biggest seller. It flopped in all the major international markets. Grey’s is probably no.1. All in all, ABC is currently doing poorly overseas.

    CBS is repeating so poorly barely eeking out a 1.0 and that the whole week. They normally order very little for summer.

    I would have premiered Mistresses midseason instead of Red Widow. Nice remake.

  • gerry

    @ pinkie,

    did one million moms stage something against it? i mean, i wouldn’t be surprised, but i hadn’t heard…. though i guess i’m so far removed from that nonsense its not surprising that if did miss it..

  • EatMorePez


    You’re hardly the first person to predict that. Plus there’s no prize if you’re correct.

  • Liam

    Considering its Summer/June and primetime tv is finished for the summer, Revolution did well. I think if the show can carry a 2.0 on Wednesdays it should be fine.

  • Cas

    So can someone tell me the ratings networks expect from summer shows? There doesn’t really ever seem to be any renewed, except for Rookie Blue and I believe they are in the 1.2 range. Also, I didn’t even know Anger Management was going to be playing on Fox. Was this even promoted?

  • SPM

    Lol @ Mistresses flopping I have hated Alyssa Milano & her second rate acting for years now so hahaha
