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 was thinking Mistresses would be up this week. I really hope it can go up at least a couple tenths cause its a really good show, best of the summer so far

  • Nikki

    Good for UTD. Nice to see it stable.. the episode was better this week for sure. And im thinking Angies getting out next week, i dont see big jim killing her. He might be shady and into drugs but hes no killer. Plus hes not to found of his son until recent, and i dont think it matters much now. He did one good thing his dad can be proud of, other then that hes a screw up weirdo lol. Anyways.. im liking this show and am interested in the rest.

  • a p

    UTD is too good for Summer.

  • Joe

    For all the people saying UTD will be renewed, after the 13 episodes that they ordered for it, it’s done. It’s a mini-series and there will be no renewal. Sorry.

  • Guardian Owl

    So excited for the return of Whose Line is it Anyway tonight, hopefully it does well enough to get renewed.

  • Dennis

    @Joe its not a miniseries at all….

  • Darryl

    Great to see that UTD stayed stable vs last week. I was expecting a 0.2 drop in the demo. Last night’s episode was far better than week 3, and I have a feeling that it may adjust up in the finals to a 2.8, here’s to hoping.

  • networkman

    I feel the acting on UTD may not always be strong but people probably do find the characters relatable. And people are interested/invested in the mystery.

  • cc

    Could Whose Line… be just the boost the CW needs? Looking forward to it. And Catfish.

  • Buddy Glenn

    Most likely the UTD storyline will end in the 13th episode (since it’s already filmed), but there could be a way to keep the characters together. Possibly have a new story around them, like the aftermath of the fall of the doom. Maybe the residents can’t leave the area because of the aftereffect. Who knows? But what UTD has done is to give the networks the idea of new scripted summer programming. CBS could look into more Stephen King’s novels for inspiration for next summer.

  • Buddy Glenn

    I meant “dome” not “doom.” Wish I could edit my previous posting. Sorry. LOL


    Under the Dome’s acting is somthing u’d expect to see on a SyFy original movie. Too many unlikable characters on the show.

  • TomSF

    Having read the Stephen King novel, I’m not sure how they can stretch this beyond a 13 part mini-series, which is what I had assumed all along. Without providing any spoilers, I’ll say that the novel has a definitive ending to it that resolves everything. While there have been some minor to moderate differences that I’ve noticed, overall 13 episode run appears to be on pace to conclude with the ending of the novel. CBS undoubtedly didn’t expect ratings this high, so it will be interesting to see how they approach the possibility of a season 2. I can’t say much more than that without giving away the whole thing.

  • Dennis

    @Tom SF

    Stephen King has said that the series will have a totally different ending then the novel…. so thankfully there won’t be any

    ***** SPOILER ALERT *****

    Woo UTD, is up on viewers. Last night’s episode was great.

    The iHeart Festival was low because I didn’t saw anything of it online. Not a promo, not anything! So those ratings match the lack of promtion it had

  • Alan

    And I think Mistresses should be renewed for midseason. It still has good ratings against UTD!

  • Dennis

    @Alan its definitely not going to be renewed for mid season!
    If it gets renewed it will be back in the summer, but I doubt it will get renewed

  • Maslany

    Stephen King has said that he is devising ways in which the dome could potentially be over the town for months on the tv show, as opposed to just a week and a half like in the book. He very well could stretch it out with the introduction of new sub-plots that happen over a number of months, but I think it would be a terrible decision to stretch out a tv series that already has an agonizingly slow pace. Yesterday was the 4th episode and it’s only been like 2 days since the dome went up…

  • brutony!

    UTD, for those who dont like it, is a hit! And Mistresses, of which I must admit I watch as a guilty pleasure, is a FLOP! Sorry, 1.1 aint gonna do it!

  • Kimberly

    I legitimately cannot believe UTD is staying steady at 2.7. I think that just shows how crappy the other summer offerings are, because it’s a terrible, terrible show. This does not mean people can’t enjoy it, but I hate how many people think UTD is well-written television.
