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

FOX was number one with adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

Note: Sorry, we only have half hours ratings today. In the meantime, averaging these half hours into ratings for each show will often lead to errors

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.

    Been watching Zero Hour and 666 Park Avenue since the beginning. I’ve found them both to be very enjoyable and very different from most of the same old nonsense on TV. It’s too bad the shows that try to be different die and the same old stuff like the plethora of crime shows live on.

  • Gabe

    666 was such a great show. I loved every single thing about it, but especially the 4 main characters. For me, it was a perfect show, but can’t really blame ABC for cancelling it with such ratings.

  • scifi

    ZH is down. It had 0.5 last week.

  • Rob R

    How soon before we get a live rating that rounds down to 0.0? We are awfully close. Neilsen may need to expand its significant digits to the right of the decimal point to record CW ratings and Saturday burnoff ratings.

  • Holly

    I’d rather watch baseball anyday than those boring reruns that didn’t work the first time around last Fall. That’s just me though.

  • SG

    I will miss 666! Love it!

  • MichaelChickless

    Is that the series finale for Brooklyn DA?

    I’m still recording Zero Hour for future viewing.

  • mike

    Sad no one watched

  • Other than THAT Mrs. Lincoln how was the play?

    Suprised 666 even aired the remaining episodes. Poor John Locke has had it rough this year. First 666 flops then his character on FALLING SKIES gets shot dead. He just hasnt been the same since Ben Linus killed strangled him to death.

  • Joseph

    Fewer than 10 million people watched the major broadcast networks this past Saturday (July 6th).

    That has to be the smallest number of people to have watched any night of prime-time broadcast network TV since the early 1950’s!

    And cable viewing levels probably weren’t much higher. In fact, perhaps no more than one out of nine Americans were watching prime-time network TV on Saturday.

    The reasons? The long July 4th weekend and the fact that most Americans were on vacation all week as well.
