Note: Preliminary numbers for the premiere of FX's The Bridge are here.

Wednesday cable numbers and broadcast finals are delayed until Friday morning. We'll post them as soon as we see them.

We know you are eager to see these numbers and appreciate your patience. The post-holiday weeks are always stressful for everyone who pays attention to the ratings. Hopefully everything will be caught up and back on a normal schedule sometime Friday.

    I think you didn’t take a good look at the home page! I’ll add a link in the post. We did post numbers (preliminary fast nationals) for The Bridge:

    For the last few weeks, DAYTIME RATINGS, normally out very very late Thursday or on Friday (when scheduled) have not been posted until MONDAYS on a regular basis, holiday or not.

    We’ll live to see another day but thanks for the heads up and concern, bro. Now, if this were the Fall premier numbers we would be forced to have you whacked:). Enjoy the summer and chill about ratings for a while.

    I don’t even care about television or ratings. I’m just a fan of benign “flop” puns.

    MAY I ASK, IS THIS STILL BECAUSE OF THE 4TH JULY, BECAUSE ITS THE 12TH ALREADY AND ITS STILL NOT SORTED YET. HOW LONG UNTIL EVERYTHINGS BETTER

  • Fake Me Out

    If a mere holiday can be so disruptive to the ratings system then one has to wonder how robust that system is in the first place.

    Being a big fan of conspiracy theories I’ll put forth that a gang of hackers has gained access to the system, is fiddling with the numbers and is making a killing in Vegas betting on the ratings spreads. Meanwhile Nielsen is desperately trying to patch their system to block the hackers and get back to providing their increasingly irrelevant numbers to a dying industry (broadcast TV)!

    ymmv

    PS: Happy Pecan Pie Day

    I’d be more annoyed if this was happening during the regular season. It’s summer so it’s not a big deal.

    HOW LONG UNTIL EVERYTHINGS BETTER

    lol

    Ratings Delays FLOP!

    HakCapone, don’t let me give you the wrong impression. I KNOW that it is not the fault of TV BY THE NUMBERS. I realize you are dependent on the informatiom being made available. Also, TV BY THE NUMBERS is one of the only web sites where one can find all this GREAT information, no matter WHICH day of the wee. I appreciate that and Sara Bible for doing the columns. This is one of my favorite internet sites! I hope this clarifies my above statement. That’s what it was intended to be a STATEMENT of things NOT IN ANYWAY a complain about this site. I adore it! Thanks again for letting me clarify, I was NOT trying to be bitchy or ungrateful.
