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.

    NASHVILLE does high 1’s with an even worse lead in for the last half of the fall season! GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

  • Josh

    The 2nd season of “Under the Dome” will be better, although this season hasn’t been bad (obviously, or the ratings would be much lower).

    CBS, now that this is a hit, will spend a LOT more money on the show, ranging from salaries for better guest actors to special effects, etc.

    Happy that the ratings are doing so well – almost certain to get a 2nd season and the 1st season does end on a cliffhanger apparently.

  • PurpleDrazi

    For the first time in a few years, we have a race for the #1 show of summer…

    I’m really hoping UTD wins. I don’t watch either show but I want the networks to see that scripted shows can be successful in the summer.

  • Simon

    I think the producers of Under The Dome can rest easy! We have a hit and so does CBS’ summer lineup! RENEW IT ALREADY! :P

  • CrimTV


    “The 2nd season of “Under the Dome” will be better, although this season hasn’t been bad (obviously, or the ratings would be much lower).”

    I like Under the Dome but in no way does high ratings mean a show is good!

  • sakil

    The sad thing is that Under the Dome will get a renewal and it’s going to become another show with a stretched storyline.

  • Cyrax86

    Mistresses is rumored to be renewed soon. ABC should have kept Body of Proof as a Summer procedural instead!

  • sam

    i love UTD but id prefer they ended it this year and did a new stephen king mini series next year

  • Joe

    I heard that Under the Dome was never planned to have a season 2. It was just suppose to be 13 episodes regardless of how high the ratings are.

  • BigBrotherFan


    Ummmm…..You can’t honestly be serious

  • taylor

    I wonder if mistresses has good DVR numbers and Hulu views since all the episodes (that have aired ) are on their . Just hoping its good enough to get ABC to renew it …

  • BigBrotherFan

    I hope ABC gives MISTRESSES another go!

  • Cyrax86

    @BigBrotherFan, It’s not unlikely that BoP would have produced the same numbers Mistresses does in this timeslot as a Summer show, in my opinion.

  • enes


    Yeah but the difference is fall vs summer !

  • Tony JJ


    I agree and I hope the networks got the picture already. You have to make your scripted summer shows “events” and promote them early like CBS did with UTD. You can start promoting in may because then it just feels like summer burn off shows that are airing in the summer because they suck and are just going to be canceled.

    UTD is doing amazing! ABC should renew mistresses, I don’t watch it but it’s been holding steady/growing and has not dropped below 1.0. If they add to netflix it could grow next summer. I’m sure it’s cheap to produce and it’s doing better than their other new summer scripted series, MOTIVE.

  • rgxx

    Regardless of some of the script…this scripted show is better than these lame reality shows…like Winner & Big Brother…

    ***Please Angie, knock Junior out and RUN!***

  • Simon

    The producers said in interviews at Comic-Con that the season ends in ‘One hell of a Cliffhanger and if we aren’t lucky enough to be renewed, you’re screwed’

  • BigBrotherFan


    I don’t know because I look at Motives numbers…

  • Maslany


    It is NOT a miniseries as it was originally planned to be. According to the creators at Comic Con, Season 1 will end with “One hell of a cliffhanger.”

  • Seth

    Under the Dome is such a terrible show but the ratings suggest popularity which is why this is confounding situation.
