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.

    CBS will probably be stupid and bring back UTD in Feb…it was supposed to be a LIMITED series…12-13 episodes only…now I hear rumors of renewel and carrying this on for years…don’t do that CBS…

    Make this a big hit and then do another “one season series”…Hollywood drags out good things until no one wants it and then they cancel the show or rush story lines because they don’t want those on the show to know until they are DONE writing for the season, that they will be cancelled.

  • atlanta

    UTD is not the best series ever, but entertaining and best of all a successful drama during the summer. Enough with the junk series for summer.

  • rgxx

    No UTD is not the best series … but’s it’s not another NYPD, CSI, REEALITY contest, survival reality, a sitcom with the same jokes, it’s a little unique and it has ZERO competition…CBS will figure out a way to mess this up…

    AND Please CBS – don’t start doing: Under The Dome N.Y., Under The Dome Criminal Intent. Under The Dome NCIS, — you know where I am going with this.

  • rgxx

    Really Dateline – a whole hour on a baby? – I think 15 minutes would have been fine…how about hard news; like the IRS mess?!

  • cimmer

    The royal baby didn’t do much for NBC and didn’t bother UTD at all, kind of happy for that even though I’m not a Dome fan. Maybe NBC should have stuck with its original schedule?

  • Liam

    CBS should do the right thing and keep Under the Dome as a Summer show. Don’t kill something that is going really well during the time of the year where ratings are always dreadful.

    I don’t think the show will survive or do as well during the normal tv season.

  • LisaM

    Is UTD no good? I get tired of new shows with promising concepts and they don’t come through.

  • Jane Elliot

    I finally gave up on watching Under the Dome, but I’m thrilled that it’s doing well in the ratings. Anything that encourages scripted summer programming makes me happy.

  • Charles

    I Like UTD, but one season is enough to finish the show well.

    Good for Mistresses. I still have a little hope that ABC can renew the show. ABC renewed Rookie Blue, so I think Mistresses may have the same destiny.

    Oh CW, seriously? Premiering BP after a repeat? Bad choice.

  • a p garcia

    I like UTD, but it is getting predictable. I think it has potential to get even better. Still I have not heard a theory as to why the Dome and why even radio waves can’t cross the barrier and why nothing can even dent it.

  • JOHN

    Under the zzzzzzzzzzzz

    “The Dome within’ The Dome”

  • Jiji Moran

    Every UTD episode has been interesting, so good for them.

    The only character I’m having trouble with is Junior. I can’t tell if he is good or bad, thinking that hiding the young lady in the home storm shelter coud’ve been him trying to protect her, but then again he’s just hateful at times, good other times.

    The actor’s physique is unique, which makes him interesting, so hopefully he’s not killed off like other characters. It’s like they are going down a list of least needed characters.

  • a p garcia

    Its transparent Aluminum!

  • Leoben Conoy

    Two things:

    one, NBC can go eat a big one for preempting Siberia last night to air that Baby Kate nonsense.

    and secondly, horray for Under the Dome. Its a decent enough show (it certainly is lacking in the dialogue dept.) and I am enjoying it.

    But it is amazing that it is pulling such large numbers

  • Kissan

    I enjoyed UTD yesterday and glad it’s getting the rating it deserves. But from 8-10 yesterday I was busy on ABC Family watching SAB and The Fosters. And boy was The Fosters good, it literally ended with a BANG!

  • Paul P

    UTD was really good last night! Glad to see the ratings up!

  • BigBrotherFan

    Jiji Moran

    He’s my favourite too! I’m wondering what comes of him in the book?

    …Just to nit/pick though THAT ACTOR LOOKS WAY OLDER THAN COLLEGE years…more like 28


    So many here are calling UTD predictable or boring and “I just dropped it” but I find the show excellent. Last nights episode was great and while I feared the show might take the leap to the unrealistic like Revolution did on its 2nd-3rd episode UTD hasn’t and their character development is pretty good, but the star of the show is the Dome.

    The show grew at the 1/2 and I expect the show will continue to do well despite what people on this site say. It’s a good show but I would love for it to get even more raw (racism, mass-hysteria, revenge and such)…

    Mistresses is sooooooooo good!
