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.

    Wow Under the Dome….Suprised :)

    Oh Well, Still good

  • rob60990

    Under the Dome keeps falling. Lets the excuses continue. :D

  • Dennis

    Also, go Siberia…you hang in there :)

  • Pepper

    I guess other people are finally getting sick of UTD, I gave up on it weeks ago

  • Brian

    Under the Dome starting to skew pretty old. But still a huge hit. Nothing to worry about.

  • Brendan

    It’s sad because UTD was an extremely good episode last night. Kind of predictable but I enjoyed it. I can see where fans are getting annoyed with the show but I still like it :)

  • Dennis

    There was an article on Deadline the other day, Piracy for Under the Dome shot up after last weeks episode because of the blackout… so it looks like it has actually affected it even though some people say it hasn’t

  • rob60990

    Good for CMA Music Festival. Too bad ABC wasted their promotion on a failure like Nashville. The only other returning shows that got an ad were Castle & The Middle

  • Brian

    Nothing to worry about….

    :) Still massive numbers for a summer drama.

    Also… “The Monarch will be Crowned” WTF !

  • Great for CMA!

    Last night was the tenth edition for annual “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night To Rock” and was certainly one of its best performances. Great special. I was entertained all the way through!

  • Brian

    Looks Like Bear Grylis will be back next summer on NBC :)

  • Brian

    TWC dispute is hurting UTD. It’s getting crushed in LA and Dallas, according to Variety last week. Just because other shows aren’t as affected on CBS doesn’t mean UTD can’t be.

  • rob60990

    Fans of UTD cant blame the blackout because it is still down from last week. :)

  • Brian



    All shows go down and up down and up…

    2.3(likely adjust up) and over 10 million viewers is massive for summer.
    People didnt even think it would premiere that high so stop your nonsense

  • Simon

    2.3 for Under the Dome and 10.14 million that can’t be right, can it?

  • Brian

    UTD is a smash hit… sorry for those who can’t grasp that!

  • Jake


  • Dennis


    Rob60990 predicted Under the Dome would premiere with a 1.3… so I wouldn’t bother.. he’s a troll.

    He even thinks Bates Motel has done badley, even though its A&E’s number 1 drama EVER. :D

    all he watches is tween shows anyway :)

  • Mon

    Even the repeats on CBS were down so no worries about Under the Dome. And it’s been renewed already.

  • Jacobo

    UTD is starting to become a train wreck too many subplots makes it confusing
