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.

    2.8 is excellent!! Go Ninja warrior!!

  • dantas

    2.8 on the dot! I’m guessing it’ll stabilize around low 2.0s

  • Dillan

    Still great for Under the Dome.

  • Jonathan

    Great for Mistresses! Obsessed with this show!!

  • Dennis

    Great for Under the Dome

    Siberia is a flop

  • Mon

    Under The Dome still did really well.

    Ouch at Siberia. It was a pretty good episode though.

  • Oliver

    Given how cheap Siberia must be, I imagine NBC will be happy with that.

  • rob60990

    Not surprised Siberia did terrible. It looked awful anyway.

  • fouratsakka

    still good for under the dome it will be adjusted up to 2.9 and maybe the season low will around 2.5-2.3 and it will be renewed

  • Potato

    Idk why people thought under the dome wouldn’t drop. Shows almost always drop from their premiere. Assuming we’re anywhere close to the ratings floor, that’s still excellent

  • Kimberly

    Even though it was horrible and awful, I kind of want Under the Dome to adjust up to a 2.9, just so I can be right in my prediction of 2.9. Although, I guess I’d be happier if it sits at 2.8. And then drops next week to 2.4, and then 2.2, then steady at 1.9/2.0 for the duration.

    It’s just too awful to maintain solid ratings.

  • JR35

    UTD could be adjusted up like last week, too- either way, a 2.8 is still pretty impressive. Some thought it wouldn’t even get near that for the premiere.

  • Hardline_Pro

    Wow. I hope Under the Dome gets adjusted up.

  • bjssp

    Why wasn’t Siberia launched on Tuesdays or even Thursdays at 10:00?

  • Drago

    Goodwin Games was so good (in fact, the whole run, except the pilot).
    Cant believe that this is the end.

  • gerry

    2.8 is still pretty great. many shows in season aren’t pulling that. if UTD stabilizes soon, its a total win for cbs.

    also glad to see the uptick for mistresses, esp since its going up against UTD. i like it as well.

  • JoshuaCanada

    Siberia did better then I thought. For how cheap it is, a 1.1 has go to be okay. It should have went on a different day though

  • John A

    Not too bad for UTD.

  • Theisssuesarenow

    Kimberly is wrong and UTD is fine. It is not awful at all.

  • rob60990

    “Why wasn’t Siberia launched on Tuesdays or even Thursdays at 10:00?”

    Thursday at 10 would have been worse after repeats of The Office that are pulling .6-.7 ratings. I don’t know why NBC isn’t utilizing AGT lead-in however.

    “Kimberly is wrong and UTD is fine. It is not awful at all.”

    She’s not wrong for giving her opinion.
