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 just watched the trailer for Revolution S2. I actually think the writers listened to the viewers, because S2 appears to look like the show they promised the viewers. I also noticed the writers did not tone down the violence of the show. Not that it is any more violent than Prison Break or 24 when they aired.
    I also watched the previews for Ironside with my man Blair Underwood, I was kinda of blown away. I think NBC may no what there doing with this reboot.

  • Holly


    Just proves people will watch anything during summer when nothing else is on.

    Your point would be stronger if Under the Dome didn’t have ratings that would be great for the regular season, or if Mistresses, Camp, Motive, and Rookie Blue were better than low 1s. Like it or not, Under the Dome is a ratings success, and not just because it’s on during summer.

  • Dan S

    Yay, I nailed it with my prediction for a 2.8 last night. UTD is a keeper despite some people not liking it for various reasons. Not everyone is going to like the same type of show which is why we have a variety of different shows to choose from.

  • A.C.

    LOL at the UNDER THE DOME haters…all they can post here is they can’t believe the ratings are going up because the quality is terrible, the writing is terrible etc…well it would seem the haters and their opinions are in the minority because clearly the country disagrees and keeps watching UTD!

  • LynTex

    Missed a couple of epis but caught last night’s UTD. Really enjoyed!!

  • Thomas

    Under the Dumb is a truly awful and mindless show. I hate the American mass viewing population…

  • Melissa

    Rgxx: Big Brother is miles better than UTD. uTD is an awful television show… Mindless dumb stupid etc etc

  • hanp

    The best thing(s) about the UTD last are the butterflies.

  • Samunto

    And it goes to show that a scripted series with a good budget that doesn’t scream cheap will do well in the summer. Look at the other originals running in summer that are cheap imports. Esp Crossing Lines and those accents that do not work at all. It may have sounded good on paper but hearing so many accents was distracting.

    Atleast Camp is decent.

    With 24 and Wayward pines lined up, we can expect more original offering in the summer. The question is how much ad dollars they’ll bring in. Under the Dome is costing CBS almost nothing with prior international sales/co-producers. Same price for as for a regular series but shared with partners.

    Watched the ep and it was ah-muhzing!

  • Alan

    Great night for everyone, except NBC. And why did the CW even renewed Breaking Pointe?

  • Maslany


    It was Ben Edlund, for sure. He left the writing cast of Supernatural to help Eric Kripke with Revolution season 2. He is a brilliantly creative writer, and I’m sure the quality has gone up exponentially.

  • lostboy

    I liked S1 Revolution and found it entertaining, it was definitely in need of some help for all the Revolution haters out there. Well from what I have seen of S2 previews of Revolution it sure looks like the characters have more depth and are likable.
    I do not watch Supernatural, however a co-worker loves Supernatural and said S2 of Supernatural was the best season, and has been hooked, he also said that S1 of Supernatural was all over the place. Well here’s to Ben Edlund then.

    “Remember what people loved in movies ~5 years ago? Here’s the TV version.”

    What did people love in movies 5 years ago?

  • Ihateeverything

    Man why are there so many haters on this website.
    UTD is pulling in the ratings. Yes maybe it is mindless, but who cares. How does a summer show effect or bother people. Everybody has an excuse for why it is pulling a large audience, it just is. Just because people enjoy the show does not make them mindless. I don’t watch TGW or Scandal or any NCIS show does that make me mindless. Different strokes for different folks.

  • Melissa

    That’s the problem, ihateeverything… It’s not different strokes for different folks. It’s popular TV shows being mindless, dumb and unoriginal while quality, smart TV is cancelled or struggling. Don’t kid yourself into thinking it’s a matter of opinion here, and stop complaining that smart people dislike your stupid show. Shows like UTD are destroying the chances smart TV shows have to live and it is NOT okay.

  • Ihateeverything

    I was not complaining. I never said smart people dislike UTD. I am not sure what you consider smart tv. However I did just buy one. That is kinda an oxymoron like Military/Intelligence.
    Most shows that you consider smart tv is on the cable networks these days, which actually is quite the opposite of life 20 years ago. So watch cable tv or netflix. I hate every thing was sarcasm, wow UTD is destroying tv , I thought reality tv, and Charlies Angels did that years ago. UTD is not in my top 10, it has a a really good beat, I would give it a 5.

  • Matt

    I am stoked by how awesome Under the Dome is and the ratings. Hopefully, they won’t adapt the whole – enormous – book on season 1 so that it can get an expected season 2.

  • Joe

    It seems like when a show is a big hit(like UTD) people just have to bash it. Seems to happen with every show that gets really popular.

  • dee

    Lol at the UTD haters that can’t accept its a hit!

  • Jon

    Not sure why people keep hating on under the dome. Is it the world’s best tv show? well of course not. It’s mediocre as heck, but when you compare it to the rest of broadcast tv’s summer offerings, it truly is the only game in town. Look up and down at the major networks summer offerings. They consist mostly of reality shows and summer burn offs. UTD gives people who want to watch something on tv, at least one night in which to do it.
