In Late-Night Metered Markets Monday 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.

    I predicted =/<2.6 for "Under the Dome" so I was pretty close. I was surprised when I saw more people were predicting a larger number. I can understand the dip because I ended up falling asleep half way through it (when I woke up Letterman was on)! Next week if I'm sleepy by 9:30 I'm going to bed. I'm not even going to bother to stay up for it.

  • K

    UTD is doing well, because of Dean Norris, just like Revolution has done because of Giancarlo Esposito.

  • Alan

    UTD stop dropping! I’m hoping it gets adjusted up. And what are you talking about, John A? I love Britt’s work, she was great on The Secret Circle and Life Unexpected.

    And, wasn’t Oh Sit a repeat?

  • Potato

    @Marsinvestigations1@gmail.com– no, cbs basically lied in the promotional materials. Everyone involved with the production is saying in interviews that they hope to have 13 eps a year for many years

  • POIFanatic

    I guessed a 2.6. Dome did great. Episode 2 was kinda awful, but I enjoyed this episode.


    Last nights episode of Under the Dome was UNDER- Whelming

  • darkstar

    I dont believe it, a crap like UTD doing 2.7!!!

  • Nikki

    Not bad for Under the Dome.. and it will probably adjust up like last week. Im enjoying the show its something different.. which means it probably wont last because people dont like different and new. Oh well. And the only problem ive had with the show is Britts been stuck under ground a bunch.. i hope that doesnt last much longer. I saw the review for the 1st episode and they praised the hell out of her. Lets hope we get to see more of her.

  • Kyle

    I love Mistresses! Too bad I think it’s probably getting cancelled.

  • lostboy

    Have not watched UTD E3. I will give it one more episode, I was hoping it would be better than it is. You can’t argue with a 2.7 demo especially for summer. Someone mentioned they fell a sleep during the episode 3, only CBS can pull this mediorce show off and still beat the competition when the average viewers are over 75. Poor Zero Hour, good show. Man even Perception sucks this summer, I feel like I am watching a rerun of S1. Please bring DALLAS back in Summer 2014. It is a sad state when you watch UTD hoping it will draw u in, but it does not. I might have to start watching Major Crimes a coworker said it is a very good show.

  • lostboy

    CBS must count infants in that 18-49 demo for UTD.

  • Why Watch

    UTD is underwhelming. The Junior story line is pathetic. And characters don’t seem to be that concerned about essentials as much as they should. Where is the food and fuel going to come from; how much air and water does get through the dome – apparently quite a bit since the smoke from the fire no longer seems to be a concern. The crazed police officer was more like you would expect the general populace to become and the crowd more like the police should be.
    I’ll give this another week to turn around before unscheduling this.

  • Kissan

    Does anybody know when ABC are gonna announce their premiere dates?

  • The End

    There was a guy on here that predicted the ratings to the letter for episodes 2 and 3 of Under the Dome. I forgot your name, but although I initially thought you were talking out your rear end, your prediction was utterly brilliant whoever you are.

  • agsb2

    In my area UTD was not broadcast because the CBS affiliate was knocked off the air.

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

    I started to lose interest in UTD when the killed off Frank Lapidus aka Duke – he made it off the LOST Island piloting Ajira 316 only to end up dead of a pacemaker explosion? That was just wrong on sooooooooooo many levels.

    King would have been better off doing a continuation of THE STAND miniseries only 15 years later and get back a few of the actors from the original mini series – to see what their post plague world turned into.

    I know they reworked the plot as to who is behind the creation of The Dome (in the original story it was alien teenage punks getting jollies out of torturing humans) so it may yet turn out to be worth watching. I will probably stick with it, but all we get are melocdramatic soap opera type episodes, I see the ratings continuing to slide. But even if they descend to REVOLUTION type levels just under 2.0 – it will likely get a 2nd 13 episode season next summer.

  • KarenM

    UtD’s the perfect summer show. I don’t know if it’d do as well in the fall.

  • Anon

    @ DenverDean

    The double-pump has ended. There is no UtD encore scheduled this week.

    I will be interested to see next Monday’s numbers – perhaps we will see a spike if people realize the Sunday encore is gone.

  • vcoolwater

    Yesterday’s episode for Under the Dome is getting a lot of hate. In fact I have seen more negative than positive reactions to it. I wonder if this will have a affect on the ratings next week.

  • Juan

    Some of you don’t think before writing. SyFy being put out to pasture? It’s ranked in the top 20 of all cable in PT weekly avg! It attracts a higher income bracket of viewers than most other cable networks. It’s stupid to even suggest it. Siberia has moved from SyFy Sat to NBC Mon. Give that some thought. It’s not a hand me down. It’s simply a better fit on NBC than being squeezed between Primeval & Sinbad on SyFy.

    I believe, UTD is a 6 part mini-series. The story ends this summer. It will not be coming back. The spots were sold this summer based on the strength of the famous people involved with it’s production. The ratings have more than solidified their status amongst the sponsors. UTD’s success this summer will greenlight more King based mini-series in the near future. CBS & their sponsors care more about total viewers than the other Big networks.
