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.

    Hollywood Game Night repeats better then new Hannibal ROFL :D

  • Brian

    What happened to SYTYCD? Under 4 million??

  • Dennis

    Good for AGT :D
    If it adjusts up it will be the first week its beaten Under the Dome….

    NBC must be pissed that UTD has taken its crown :D

  • Dennis

    So You Think you Can Dance is Anemic as ever

  • John A

    Good for Whose Line. Its fairly steady at 0.8-0.9 now.

  • rob60990

    Person of DisInterest not repeating very well in its new timeslot. The best it can do is tie a repeat of a cancelled show.

    Only a few more weeks left until we see something worthwhile. :)

  • Mon

    So, America’s Got Talent ties with Under the Dome (might still adjust up later though) and some idiot yesterday named rob60… had been bragging how UTD is going down and that its fans were making excuses.

  • rob60990

    AGT is in its 8th season, while sinking UTD is only in its 1st. Will UTD make it to 8 seasons? No one will even remember it even existed 8 years from now. :D

  • AllOfHerTwist

    Go NCIS!

    I don’t ever watch The CW, but that’s great for Whose Line.

    better then


  • Mon

    Of course you’re going to make that excuse because you don’t know any. Ratings were a lot higher years ago than today. Who’s making excuses now?

  • Dennis

    All That needs to be said when talking about Under the Dome…..

    Its doing better then most new shows from last season. That is all. :D

  • CrimTV

    I see Capture being renewed, remaining in the 0.3-0.4 range

  • Mon

    And UTD is based on a book so unless there’s a library about UTD somewhere, then no it’s not going to last 8 seasons because it is not meant to be that way in the first place.

  • Dennis


    I can see Under the Dome going for 3 or 4 seasons at most…there’s no way it could last beyond that, with the rate they are killing people off there’d be nodody left Under the Dome

  • Michael1


    So, what you’re really saying is that repeats of the cancelled “Body of Proof” are tying repeats of a show that has been renewed by a better network. I think we have a new entry for “Fan Excuse Bingo.”

  • vcoolwater

    Whose line is doing good for CW. However 22 episode is too much for the show. I can see viewers stop watching the show after a while. They should only ordered about 13 episodes.

  • Fred

    Body Of Proof would have worked as a summer program. New episodes would have surely garnered similar ratings compared to Motive or even Rookie Blue.
    ABC would probably have to lower the budget though.

  • Gabby

    The rerun episode of “Person of Interest” that aired last night actually aired two months ago when the show was still airing on Thursdays.

  • r0ckmypants

    I actually really like Capture. It’s a lot of fun, which is more than I can say for this season of So You Think You Can Dance. Please end it here.

  • Rebecca

    I enjoyed Whose Line but could barely watch when the dental surgery was happening behind Colin in that green screen part, yuck! Hardly anyone in the show could watch that part either, it appeared.
