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.

    Considering…this is the summer ratings season, it’s a 10pm death slot, it’s anything but revolutionary in the science fiction genre (actually pretty terrible), and it’s on lowly NBC, the 2.0 is respectable for Revolution. I still cannot see it lasting beyond season 2, though. It will not attract a new audience at the new day and time but will no doubt lose fans/viewers with the move. Remember Terra Nova, Terminator, The Event, V, Flash Forward, etc–all were broadcast earlier and died.

  • donj1973

    Mistresses was designed and promoted as a summer series. Plus it’s airing at 10 pm, which is always a hard timeslot. Was anyone expecting it to premiere above 2.0? Especially in the offseason?

  • lostboy

    @Dennis what is your Erotic obsession over Revolution failing?
    Do u watch the show. R U upset cause The Event was cancelled? Kinda sounds like u have a trollmance with Revolution.

  • Wright

    Revolution rocks!!!!

  • Babar

    Revolution is not going to stay on Mondays next season, so it doesn’t matter anymore.

  • Grey

    “Revolution” didn’t exactly burn down the house with those numbers, did it? Hmm.

  • The End

    @Ivana Pee
    @Actually yes. It is a massive success around the world, bigger than Grey’s and Castle!

    You’re either trolling, or someone has been feeding you a bunch of lies.

  • Fake Me Out

    :-( me sad for poor ol’ Charlie. Anger Management may not be the great comedy ever, or even currently, but it is a fun way to kill 20 mins most episodes. I’m hoping Fox/FX doesn’t bail and produces all 100 episodes … then I can enjoy them for what they are, not expect more nor worry it’ll be canceled.

    Speaking of great comedies, although I don’t think it has held up with age, All in the Family was a great, funny, groundbreaking show back in the day. Even though she had a good 90 years, success, awards and the love of millions … I was still saddened at the passing of Jean ‘Edith Bunker’ Stapleton. Thanks for all the laughs and your wonderful body of work Jean. RIP.

  • Barbie

    Awwww, Mistresses. I wanted to watch it! But I’ll wait before falling in love.

  • Ian

    So out of those trashing Mistresses how many of you actually watched it? Cause if you did you would know that the show isn’t really about what the title suggests…

  • Brandy

    @Dave, so should ve your precious Nikita, which was the lowest rated show renewed yet again.I h had three 0.2s, went below a million viewers fve times.Its always been the lowest or the second lowest rated show on cw.CD got renewed, so get over your hate for it.It made enough money through Netflix to get renewed.Nikita will probably hit 0.1 on fri(still)@ Midseason.Nikitas only getting six episodes LoL!Neither CD or Nikita had great ratings and will continue to do poorly on fri, but to bash one show doing the same as your beloved show is hypocrisy .
    @Loki aka Bondoel, it’s a repeat and that episode has repeated a few times , it got only a tenth of point lower for a repeat than a Nikita original.Its summer, people are outside longer/later and plus, the summer tv season has barley started so many people aren’t watching much tv yet.Also, it was a repeat so it’s ratings don’t matter and it got renewed so get over your hate.

  • Brandy

    @Loki, Bndoel, CD repeat last night was only a tenth lower than Nikita’s repeat on fri.

  • a p garcia

    Revolution had the potential to be a ratings winner, but NBC in its stupidity ruined it. First by putting it in a 4 month hiatus. Even when it did come back, an even I though it was still in hiatus or cancelled. Considering the long hiatus, it did well. TCD had phatic numbers even if it was a repeat. I guess the person at CW, who renewed it, days are numbered.
    I am wondering why “All In the Family” isn’t shown on all those retro networks, I guess it would out rate the current comedies on NBC,CBS,& ABC or even FOX!

  • Joseph

    Chances are, “The Voice” may have been the only show on broadcast or cable last night (June 3rd) to attract more viewers than Game 7 of the Miami/Indiana NBA playoff series.

    But “Voice” may have lost out to hoops.

  • HalCapone

    I thought Mistresses was actually pretty good summer television, kinda like reading an escapist beach novel. All the female leads are good, too. High brow it is not but it doesn’t wallow in the low brow either.

  • Lisa

    Regarding TCD, this is the 4th airing of the pilot. So, no wonder it got really low ratings. Maybe it will perk up .1 or .2 more next week.

  • Ike

    @DanaK, believe it or not, most of those local channels would do worse without the CW if they went independent. Independent channels get atrocious numbers these days. Yes, worse than the CW. There is too much competition from cable channels with much bigger promotional capabilities. At least by banding together and sticking with the CW they can get shows with *some* promotion — it may not be a lot, but it’s definitely more than, say, the late lamented first-run syndicated show Legend of the Seeker ever got.

  • Russ

    Once CBS starts airing Under The Dome, Mistress will be below a 1.0.

  • vcoolwater


    Actually I can see the channals doing about the same or even better without CW programming. Plus it is cheaper to air repeats plus some local original programs.

    Except for the trinty, I doubt local affliates are getting much revenue from the other shows. Of the new shows, only Orginals and Tomorrow People to me look like a sure shot for renewal.

    However CW is in decline along with the other braodcast channels. Plus both Arrow and The Vampire Diaries experianced decline at the end of the season.. Only Supernatural gained in the ratings – but who knows in its new time slot.

  • Billy

    CBS obviously values Under The Dome as a top summer series. They are giving it The Big Bang Theory lead in on June 24. TBBT will air at 9:30 in place of Mike and Molly. CBS now uses TBBT as the lead in for most of their shows to give them a boost. LOL
