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.

    thank’s i am just not use to smilies that much because i don’t use them that much!

  • Seth

    Superb for The Voice.

  • James

    Very bad for So You Think You Can Dance. Fox’s Tuesday is going to be really tough…

  • Dave

    Now you see that’s great retention right there out of The Voice. You should try doing that Revolution; oh wait, you won’t have The Voice anymore :D

    Oh and yes, I’m a proud retentionista! ;)

    I’m sorry, I watched about 5 minutes of AGT last night. I’ve never watched it before because I really don’t like the judges, but thought I would give the show a chance. I almost had to get up and throw up at the opening, and didn’t get past the snake act before changing the channel. All the judges praised the man for being stupid and called it a talent. After that I realized this show was a farce.

    Let me just say too that they highly over dramatized the idea that the American diamond back rattle snake is as deadly as they said. Yes it can be deadly if not treated, but you have more than mere minutes. A baby copper head is far more deadly.

    However, you are just stupid to provoke one into striking at your face… God, when did stupidly become entertaining?

    Did I mention to how stupid it was!!!

  • Hardline_Pro

    I liked AGT except for that Booty act. It was so pointless…and not even funny.

  • todd35

    All it proves is that for whatever reason people want to watch stupid reality shows… I watch the voice, and that is it when it comes to reality shows. Anymore than that would be a waste of brain cells.

    I think people are kind of getting a little out of control with their criticism of the Voice. It’s leveled off in the low 3’s the last few weeks. Those are pretty good numbers, and if I am not mistaken, a little better than Idol was pulling towards the end of its season. No its not a 7, but at a time of year when hardly anything is breaking a 2 (and MANY shows are dropping below 1), the Voice is consistently pulling above a 3. That said, I’ve stopped watching this season because it SOOOOO boring.

    SYTYCD is in trouble. I love the show, but it looks like this will be its last season. I blame Nigel (of AI fame) for not doing enough to keep the show fresh. I plan to enjoy it while it lasts.

  • TVDude

    NBC is at a 3.0+ all night on Tuesday? That’s really good. Sure both The Voice and AGT have seen better, but this is the same network that renewed a show pulling a 1.0 week after week. I’m going to say that this is great news for the shows.

  • Tony JJ

    I still don’t understand why abc is repeating a canceled show? Just like on Wednesdays. They should be airing last man standing, the neighbors, or Suburgatory instead of family tools and how to live.

  • Chuck_T

    Soon the Voice will be off for a few months, which is good. They need a break.

  • Mike

    I kikda enjoyed Brooklyn DA-But felt like I was watching a crime reality show on cable (so could see why the low ratings).BDA was a better alternative to watching the 4 most annoying people on the planet host AGT.

  • Ultima

    Why is ABC repeating a canceled show?

    Because they have to fill 22 hours of primetime and Body of Proof repeats better than their serialized dramas.

    Networks have done this for decades.

  • Andrew

    @Tony JJ
    Those Family Tools and How to Live airings on Wed are first runs. Its called Summer Burnoff. I can’t explain the BOP reruns on Tues since the show is done already.

    America’s Got Talent did great! I have a feeling it would do well anytime of the year but its working really well in summer so why mess with a winning formula.

  • Ultima

    God, when did stupidly become entertaining?

    Long before television was around; however, your outrageous outrage has been noted.

  • Ultima


    All it proves is that for whatever reason people want to watch stupid reality shows… I watch the voice, and that is it when it comes to reality shows. Anymore than that would be a waste of brain cells.

    Care to explain why watching more than three hours of reality TV is a waste of brain cells, but watching the first three hours is not?

  • Tony JJ

    @ Andrew

    I should’ve been more clear. I know family tools and how to live are both first run summer burn offs, but they should be repeating last man standing and the neighbors in the summer in the Wednesday block to help. Grow their audiences. We’ll see what abc does after family tools and how to live end.

  • chrisss

    @ Ultima

    I’m just surprised that ABC are showing repeats of BOP when Castle isn’t currently on the schedule.

  • Rick

    This season of The Voice feels like it’s 3 years long.

  • FLOP Detector

    Good for NBC, even with The FLOP Voice.

    But I remember it is the same channel that renewed Flopbal.
