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.

    second episode of whose line was not a repeat

  • Josh

    The 8:30PM Whose Line was new, it wasn’t a repeat.
    Still great ratings though. Love the show.

  • xRockStarz

    Whose Line at 8.30 wasn’t a repeat…

    Hopefully Capture will rise in the next weeks, it was actually realy good.

  • rob60990

    The rerun of Whose Line is it Anyway did better than the original. Hilarious.

  • Jay

    I liked Capture but did anyone else notice that the White Team didn’t do anything or even get mentioned?

  • rob60990

    I should have known that was an error.

  • John A

    Pity Whose Line dropped. CW need something hitting a 1.0 a week. Hope it stops falling so it can be a solid performer for CW.

  • A23

    Capture wasn’t bad. The British twins should win! Whose line is still doing great

  • Anon

    Yeah, last week the 8:30 was a repeat, this week it wasn’t, next week it will be a repeat again.

    Odd scheduling.

  • MichaelChickless


    Reality and repeats last night. I caught up on some of my Community and Office recordings last night.

  • gerry

    not a horrible premiere (by cw standards) for capture. i hope it rises as well, it was fun. i mean, most all of them seem pretty horrible but its still fun to watch.

  • Anthony

    I liked Capture but did anyone else notice that the White Team didn’t do anything or even get mentioned?

    I liked it as well. And I believe they didn’t get mentioned because they are being replaced with a different team due to a medical reason. That was mentioned in the disclaimer at the end of the episode (they didn’t specifically say which team had to be replaced but said one team had to be).

  • Anthony

    Yeah, last week the 8:30 was a repeat, this week it wasn’t, next week it will be a repeat again.

    Odd scheduling.

    That was likely done to give Capture a better lead in for it’s premiere.

  • Oliver


    They were giving the Capture premiere a better lead-in.

    And Whose Line is still a huge hit at these numbers. It’s a fraction of the cost of a scripted show.

  • Dillan

    Capture was very good. I hope it rises.

  • HV

    I think that Whose Line will continue to hit 0.9 in the following weeks. I wonder if the first half-hour will get adjusted up?

  • Dennis

    CW were FAR to quick renewing Who’s Line for 22 Episodes…. they should’ve waited till the end of this season.

    UNDER THE DOME will be the #1 Broadcast show for the week in demo and viewers :D

  • david

    Good for Who’s Line still. I was hoping Capture wold start off alot better thow.

  • Jerry


    I think it’s pretty safe to say that Whose Line is -extremely- cheap to produce. The fact that it’s this high in the summer on CW is pretty good. CW is lucky to have shows at these numbers during the regular season!

  • TV Addict

    Whose Line and Capture are great. They are legit the only CW shows I watch.
