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.

    Oh, how NBC wishes their falls were like their summers…

  • luka

    omg! AGT very bad…

  • Sergio

    I watched AGT and I really liked it!!! :)

  • Factor Flop

    The Voice failure Shakira and usher out

  • Edward

    I liked AGT as well. Lots of fun.

  • Fumbuck

    NBC killed The Voice by airing it twice this season. People are getting sick of the show and the ratings reflect that.

  • Dennis

    Pulling in 3.0 + off cycle is fantastic

    ROFL at so you think you can dance :D

  • Travis

    Shakira and Usher out even though they’ve already signed on for the sixth cycle? The Voice is still one of the highest rated shows on TV, especially in the summer season.

  • Paul P

    Didn’t watch AGL last season but kids had it on – WOW – it was fantastic.
    Suprised how high the ratings are though for a summer show.

  • RyanCanada

    I Watched and enjoyed AGT for the first time, i really liked MelB as a judge

  • NBC Fan

    Not bad for America’s Got Talent and The Voice. The Voice being down was expected because viewership levels are much lower at 8:00 than they are at 9:00 during the summer.

    So You Think You Can Dance was obviously hurt by the competition.

    Extreme Weight Loss looks really weak.

    Brooklyn DA is dead.


    The Voice is doing extremely well which will adjust up for a results show at 8pm. Its actually close to what it had last week. Lets remember folks this is June a much lower viewing month then May which ratings go down. Summer and vacation and its steady numbers. Still demo is higher for Voice is June then Idol was. So its doing well. Michelle/Danielle are totally the top 2. Americas Got Talent thats still solid for an eight year old show and those are good summer numbers. Especially since there are so many talent shows now. AGT is still a summer hit.

  • Ivana Pee

    Body of Proof did well int he repeats, increasing it’s lead in by viewers in millions. Why is ABC repeating a canceled show?

  • Clarke

    I was pleasantly surprised with the new judges on AGT. I do miss Sharon Osbourne though…I predicted the ratings to be around 3.0. Quite honestly, I had never heard of Mel B before this show (of course I knew about the Spice Girls, just never heard about her).

  • Eric

    The problem with The Voice is that there are no cute guys left in the competition for the past few weeks. Young women are not watching anymore. And older women are barely hanging in there. Same thing happened with American Idol this season. Female-oriented programs need male eye candy to keep the women watching.

  • llama

    What’s uni

  • sally

    im sorry but I don’t watch The Voice OR AGT, I rather watch reruns of NCIS and NCIS LA

  • HoldOn2YaButts

    I think a big problem is that The Voice has way too many country finalists. There is no variety for the masses. I had it on while doing other things until some variety showed it’s face and I’d look at the television.

  • Pavelsauce

    That’s Univision, a Spanish broadcast network.

    I really enjoyed AGT last night. There were some really cool acts, and others that were hilariously bad. Also, I’m liking Heidi Klum as judge.
