Due to the nature of live  programming the ratings for FOX (MLB Baseball) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers. See below for more information on these Fast Affiliate Ratings

Note: ABC ‘s line-up was preempted in Boston and NBC was preempted in Detroit.

FOX was number one with adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On FOX, MLB Baseball scored a preliminary adults 0.9 18-49 rating up 50 percent  from last week’s preliminary 0.6.

On ABC, Zero Hour earned a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating even with last week. 666 Park Avenue scored a 0.5 among adults 18-49 also matching last week’s performance.

On CBS, Brooklyn DA garnered a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating even with last week.

On NBC Do No Harm returned to a 0.3 adults 18-49 rating down 57 percent from a 0.7 for its previous episode in February. The 41 percent of you who predicted it would be the lowest performing show of the night are half right. It tied with Zero Hour for that dubious honor.

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 baseball 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.
