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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

  • The End

    @SyFy being put out to pasture?

    Surprised someone suggested that. The network has a healthy budget at least, better than some networks.

    #….Mrs. Lincoln: WTF! SPOILER ALERT!!! Ugh!

  • The End


    Wow yeah you’re right. I guess they didn’t know that you’re not allowed to post direct spoilers on here for upcoming episodes, but can discuss recently aired episodes.

    They did say that the TV adaption will be different to the Books in places, so hopefully that spoiler is moot.

  • Confusion

    Why is there is longer than usual delay with Sunday’s cable ratings?

  • Jen

    I have to agree with Marc and John A. I’m really trying to like UTD, I love Stephen King’s work but it is like a bad soap opera and the script writers should be fired! The characters say the stupidest things!! “We have to put this fire out” “how do we do that?” Seriously!!! Who writes that crap! It’s not funny it’s awful. I’m trying I really am I love the concept and everything but my god the stupidity is getting to be a little much.

  • Melanie P.

    Really loving Mistresses! Great show.

  • platypus Perry

    Wonder if Carrie will hit a 0 in demo before the Fall Premieres. It sure has been close many times this Summer. If it is this low on Monday imagine what it would deliver on a more weakened Friday Night!

    Under the Dome doing solid. CBS must have a contract with Britt Robertson she plats on so many shows owned or co-owned by CBS in the past 3 or 4 seasons with Life Unexpected, Secret Circle, and Under the Dome. Hopefully this show will work out for her.

    Bachelorette kinda low considering the Winter Bachelor was Hitting above avg network ratings. Mistresses is not doing so well.

    NBC is solid with the Ninja show. Siberia not that good ratings wise, however I must say I’m surprised it managed to score a 1.0 demo after premiering a 1.1 I thought it would’ve dropped more.

  • Rob R

    Will someone explain the CW business model to me? Only 336,000 live viewers for The Carrie Diaries? The lowest rated daytime soap opera, General Hospital, draws over 2,400,000 live viewers at 2 pm Eastern, which is 8 times better.

  • Jack Bauer

    Really don’t like CBS. Their shows sometimes gets too old and boring. :-(

  • HalCapone

    Summer mashups we’d like to see: Under The Mistresses

  • Nikki

    I dont understand all the hate for Under the Dome.. its something new and different. The acting is good, the story is interesting. Ive been digging it from the start. And Britts a great actress.. i dont get all the hate for her either. I know i said this before but in the 1st review they praised her big time.

  • Dahne

    Count me as another Under the Dome viewer frustrated yesterday. I too wish they would get rid of the Junior and Angie story line. They still haven’t earned Junior’s crazy and it is unfathomable to me that there weren’t any hints of it beforehand. It was also too melodramatic yesterday but I did enjoy the manhunt and I am glad some of the tension is rising. For some that were unhappy about the lack of panic over supplies, it looks like we are going to get that in spades in the next episode.

    @Juan – Every interview I’ve read for Under the Dome says that they plan for it to have more than one season. Not sure where you are getting your information that it will NOT be coming back. Even the show runners and Stephen King expect it to come back next year if the ratings hold and it seems like they will.

  • Brandy

    @Rb R, it was a repeat and that episode has been shown more than once already, so people aren’t going to watch what they’ve already seen.Plus, its summer.CW makes it money through d revenue, syndication,international sales,DVD/merchandise sales and through a rich mult year streaming deal with Hulu & Netflix.
    @PlatypusGerry, stop wishing a show would hit 0.0 , that’s childish.Also, at least for the next two weeks, CD won’t be aired.Mon July 15 I Heart Radio Pool Part & Monday July 22,HoD moves to 8pm Mon and at 9 Breaking Pointe.So I think you’re out of luck waiting for it to hit 0.0 for reruns.

  • The End

    @Stephen King expect it to come back next year if the ratings hold and it seems like they will.

    I haven’t heard that. I just know that he pretty much made it clear that the Dome will there for a lot longer than it was in the Books. More than a few months was the figure given.

  • HalCapone

    While the Stephen King book, Under The Dome isn’t his best work, it’s not bad. Unfortunately, television adaptions of books tend to drag on too long and more emphasis is placed on soap opera elements of a story which is precisely what is happening to the CBS’ version, not to mention rewriting major parts of the story. All in all, I’m not complaining because a reality show alternative would be much, much, much worse so keep the scripted escapist fare coming networks. Mistresses is surprisingly good; it doesn’t pretend to be anything other than a soap opera with compelling characters.

    Off topic: did anyone ever see that Stephen King interview on TMC? I only caught part of it. During part of the interview, he was critiqued film adaptations of his work (not sure if he covered television adaptations but this was obviously filmed well before CBS’ Under The Dome). King hated The Shining but loved Cujo and The Dead Zone.

  • TV#1

    I think as long as UTD stays above a 2.0 it should be in good shape. CBS also seems to care about its time delayed viewership as well. I hope they do another season though. I like these limited network Summer series. I hope we see more of them in the upcoming years.

  • Pepper

    Still great for UTD! TCD reruns will probably hit 0.0 soon

  • try harder

    UTD is getting worse from episode to episode. The numbers will probably remain pretty strong and it will be renewed (yep, it’s supposed to be a series now not a mini like some still think) but I don’t want to imagine the level of idiotic writing it will have in the second season.

  • GARY

    Siberia or Under The Dome, it made no difference; Verizon bought ads on both shows

  • Ram510

    Mistresses I was great last night! I hope it comes back
