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.

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

    It is actually shorter than the previous one, but I think its more boring due to the amount of country at the show.. the Judges are better than before.

  • atlanta

    @Chrisss Castle is currently rerunning on Saturday night. The ratings reflect that peeps dont know it.

  • Tia

    Do we know the half hours?

  • Ultima

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

    Castle repeats will be in the Sunday 10pm timeslot after the NBA Finals are over.

  • Dan

    Brooklyn DOA

    Amazing for Americas Got Talent, wonder why it never aired in the fall or spring

  • Joseph A

    So where are we with So You Think You Can Dance , are we still in city audtions ? Asking because I skip the auditions because they are so badly produced .

  • Ivana Pee

    “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.”

    But why repeat a show thats canceled. I know ABC repeats show but i have never seen a canceled show been repeated after the season finale. If it repeats well, why cancel it at all. Surely ABC would rather repeat shows that are coming to the fall schedule. Perhaps ABC are rethinking their decision on canceling BOP.

  • CrimTV


    No, the reason The Voice has falled from the fall cycle is because 1. ratings fall during spring anyway and 2. it’s now June and people go on holiday, go outside etc. It will probably adjust up to a 3.1 anyway!

  • Michael

    Only the people of TVBTN think pulling over a 3.0 for the summer schedule is considered a flop, lol. Especially, when The Voice is ALWAYS adjusted upwards in the finals!

  • rgxx

    AGT was very good – better than I thought for a premier…I am glad Osborne is gone.

    SYTYCD & Extreme need to be cancelled – don’t renew them after this season.

    Voice is a little boring now b/c most of the artists are all doing country…although Shakira & Usher have been resigned as alternates so ypu’re wrong about them leaving for good. And I think NBC needs to have it on once a year not twice.

  • networkman

    I agree that Body of Proof should no longer be on the schedule. Since ABC wanted to cancel it and it has finish airing all its first run episodes, then what is the purpose of keeping it there? Since Mistresses is on Monday, then Castle repeats should be airing on Tuesday.

    How low can So You Think You Can Dance go before FOX cancels it? I feel it may have 1 or 2 seasons left in the tank and then its done. I’m surprised Mary Murphy is still on the judging panel.

  • CBSviewer

    NCIS repeated well considering it has been on for 10 years. Tuesday is a tough night especially during summer (The Voice and SYTYCD). The Show can hold a 1.0 and almost 9 million viewers (which is higher than some other shows).

  • Chrissy

    I liked AGT! That was a better rating for BOP, last weeks repeat got a 0.4!

  • HalCapone

    Not a fan of any singing competition show and never watch one second of any of them but don’t their ratings typically stay steady or often increase as it builds to the final show of the season?

  • Jacobo

    The voice will be adjusted up and AGT will too probably.

  • Jacobo

    The reason why the Voice needs to be twice a year is because its ratings would plummet.

  • Jacobo

    @HalCapone depends sometimes they do sometimes they don’t

  • Fakeem

    To all the onlookers, see how having compatible shows keeps ratings close [ talking about Voice/AGT ]. This is how to program a night.


    To be honest I think NBC should move Americas Got Talent to Spring and keep the Voice for fall only but they will never do that. Also another thing on Voice is viewing levels lower at 8pm. The Voice is still killing it in June. I have really enjoyed this season far more then Idol which bored me all season and hated the judges.

  • Michael

    Jonny, why wouldn’t they keep the spring edition of The Voice?

    Nothing on TV, especially on NBC are going to be able to find another show that can consistently be above a 3.0! NBC is extremely limited on powerhouse shows.
