In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:


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.

    The FLOP Voice.

    Like I said yesterday, NBA would kill The Voice and did it.

  • Lola

    ABC is doing well this summer so far

  • Psac

    Hope SYTYCD picks back up once the competition begins. Best summer show by far.

  • Chris

    Boy, I sure hope these low numbers for The Voice are because summer has started and more people are spending time outside. It had better not be any kind of omen for the future. My thinking is NBC should premiere next spring’s cycle on February 24, the day after the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. That way, the season ends in May and not when it’s light until almost 9 pm.

  • Oliver

    I bet ABC is frustrated the NBA game was a blowout yet again.


    masterchef and the voice tie….

  • Matt

    America’s Got Talent is doing ether than American Idol did.

    Let that sink in.

  • Matt

    America’s Got Talent is doing way better than American Idol did this season.

    Let that sink in.

  • Really America?


    NBA did better than everything. The Voice was the second highest rated show on the evening. There’s no flop there at all. It’s needless trolling.

  • kbmv

    Terrible game. Terrible series so far. Only thing that can save this mess is a game 7. Wish the games were more competitive so these ratings can go up. GAME 7! Pleeeeeeeeeaaaasssseeeeee!

  • NBC Fan

    The Voice is skewing older too. The May 14th episode had a similar number in total viewers but a 3.5 in the demo.

  • Really America?


    Outside of NBA, Motive, Rookie Blue, Wipeout, and Mistresses are low rated even for the summer (none of these shows break a 1.5 in the demos) and The Bachelorette is down double digits from last year to series lows. How exactly is that “doing well”?

    ABC has had a horrible summer outside of sports. The network has to hope that this momentum doesn’t carry over to their fall schedule as right now the audience is treating the network with complete indifference.

  • kbmv

    So embarrassing for Lebron. He’s back to choking again.

  • TVDude

    I think The Voice is struggling because it’s summer and because it’s not very competitive.

    Blake brought in too many country artists and has a huge following keeping them on the show. This alienated the other views who jumped ship. After all why stick around if you can’t win? Shakira and Adam have to because they’re getting paid, but fans don’t.

    I know a lot of people watch The Voice because Blake is on it, but he’s also somewhat responsible for its downfall this season. The show’s not fun if the other coaches can’t win. It’s not really much of a competition in that regard.

  • Andies

    The Voice should only have been done once a year. The producers ruin the show by airing it twice a year…. The Voice works great in the winter but not in the summer.. Plus the contestants left suck…

    @ Factor Flop…..Shakira and Usher will be back next spring. The Voice is far from a flop. You don’t make it 4 seasons if your a flop. It will end the season as the highest rated non scripted show of the year.

  • NightWatch

    CBS Viewer… I have to agree, Brooklyn DA… what a downer. There’s nothing exciting for the summer, that is certain!

  • rgxx

    I have to say – AGT has got some good acts this year…normally I just click to see what act is on and turn the channel because it’s not that great…this year – I have watched 90% of the broadcast of the first episodes…
