TV Ratings Tuesday: ‘The Million Second Quiz’ Down From Debut & ‘Capture’ Rises
|Adults 18-49: Rating/Share||2.0/6||1.3/4||1.0/3||1.0/3||1.0/3||0.5/2|
|Adults 18-34: Rating/Share||1.4/5||1.1/4||0.6/2||0.7/2||0.8/3||0.6/2|
|Total Viewers (million)||7.832||4.191||7.089||3.615||2.840||1.412|
NBC was the number one network in adults 18-49 and with total viewers.
Note: the ratings are more scrambled than usual today due to the 15 minute presidential address, which aired live from 9-9:15 on the East Coast (with some networks running analysis after the address). Week to week comparisons for shows that aired after 9PM are essentially worthless until we get the finals later on today. Ratings are broken out below by half hour.
On NBC, night two of The Million Second Quiz earned a 1.5, down two tenths from yesterday’s 1.7 adults 18-49 rating. America’s Got Talent earned a 2.3 from 9:30-11PM, but the actual program ran from 9:15-11PM, so this number is approximate and subject to revision. Last week’s episode earned a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating.
On FOX just-renewed So You Think You Can Dance earned a 1.4 both from 8-9PM and from 9:30-10PM.
On The CW, Capture notched a 0.4, up from from last week’s 0.3 adults 18-49 rating.

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.
