  • From 12:35-1:05 a.m. ET, ABC's "Nightline" averaged a 1.2/4 in metered-market households and a 0.5/3 in 18-49 in the Local People Meters.

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.

    What happened to CBS ?

  • Steph

    Everything is a repeat. That’s what happened lol.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Steph

    I know but I hoped NCIS to get a 1.3-1.4 considering The Voice is over.

  • rob60990

    Quite a drop for AGT. I guess the low lead-in and not airing with The Voice didn’t help. They should just air it from 8-10.

    BOP isn’t repeating badly for a cancelled show but ABC should have reaired the premiere of Whodunnit.

  • Petar

    CBS repeats looking dead this summer. Last summer POI and NCIS never go below 1.2. This summer can’t even hit 1.2. Man expect BIG timr declines this season. Bigger drop than last season.

  • Samunto

    Yes this summer CBS is repeating extremely poorly. And that coming off a season where ratings were down over 20% for most shows.

  • rob60990

    “Man expect BIG time declines this season.”

    You can’t tell how shows will do next year based off repeat ratings during the summer. Look how UTD surprised.

  • MichaelChickless

    Snoozefest. I watched an SVU and H50 that I recorded in October.

  • Tyson

    CBS’s summer strategy of airing repeats and Big Brother for four months isn’t working anymore. Time to change. Perhaps Under the Dome will help.

  • Oliver

    NBC should pull Office repeats on Thursday and air Off Their Rockers repeats instead

  • CBSviewer

    @ Petar and Samunto

    Hopefully they will all return strong in the fall :)

  • cc

    Did not watch one show on broadcast tv last night.

  • dan

    sytycd yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Aron

    SYTYCD on the upward tick hopefully it’ll adjust up and grow next week and be a 2.0 hopefully..

  • Cougar Town Forever

    I’ve been wondering how much trouble SYTYCD is in. At the start of this season, I thought it looked like this would be its last. But now I’m not so sure. It was comfortably the second highest show of the night. Not bad.

  • Bob

    America’s Got Talent is still doing well. I mean it is what the third highest ranking show for the year after The Voice and Revolution. Not to shabby especially for a summer show! I pray that Big Brother does great tonight. I just love that show….my guilty pleasure big time. But I also love Master Chief and don’t want it to take a big hit from Big Brother….why they couldn’t keep Mater Chief on Tuesday’s is beyond me (actually I guess it was Hell’s Kitchen that changed) but still…

  • BigBrotherFan


  • Percysowner

    @BigBrotherFan Wow, I thought last night’s episode of SYTYCD was great! The opening number was one of the best they have had. As one of the few dance shows on the air, I want it to keep up. I love dance and seeing trained dancers and well choreographed numbers makes me happy. Now if they will only sign the choreographers from Bunheads, I would be really happy.

  • HalCapone

    It is jarring seeing NCIS/NCIS LA repeat ratings at 1.0 and 0.8, respectively. But then I look at the surprisingly strong debut of Under The Dome–I mean, science fiction on CBS at 10pm in the summer–and I conclude once again, ratings can be so freakin’ unpredictable. As far as the coming Fall season, I think CBS as the leader probably has the most to lose with respect to ratings. Their cop procedurals are starting to feel a little creaky. I’m not sure NBC can go much lower without going off air so they will either struggle next year similar to this year or show some slight improvement but The Voice will probably start it’s inevitable ratings decline due to singing competition show fatique. The real wildcard is ABC with SHIELD, along with a few potential modest new hits (and Scandal)could achieve a close second in the yearly ratings. FOX will continue its downward trajectory with further declines of IDOL and X-Factor (their only bright spot will be the Superbowl.

    I thought Off Their Rockers already finished for the season, I guess that explains why it hasn’t been renewed or cancelled yet. Why are ABC airing Body of Proof repeats??
