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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Glad for New girl but I tried B99 and it was not that good and i have a feeling te jokes will be very repetitive. Mindy on the other hand is a great show and im disappointed with its rating

  • Matt

    I would say that is disappointing for B99
    - There is no competition so when NCIS and SHIELD premiere next week, itll go below a 2.0

  • Dillan

    Series high for Capture.

  • Bill

    Dads and Mindy will probably crash and burn by Christmas… here’s hoping Brooklyn Nine-Nine can keep those numbers for the next few weeks.

  • Tom

    Good starts for the Fox comedies.

    We’ll see how much they drop next week vs. regular competition. Does even New Girl stay above 2.0?

  • josh

    I like Dads it was kinda funy

  • Billy

    Pretty good numbers for FOX, but they will never hold up against greater competition coming.

  • Oliver

    Wow, 0.5 for Capture. Bet The CW will renew it

  • Brooke

    Mindy Project’s been available online for a week now – I watched it on Hulu the day the preview was released.

  • rob60990

    I didn’t expect Brooklyn 9-9 to do that well. I figured Dads had more buzz especially with Seth M as creator. Maybe the horrendous reviews scared viewers away. I can see Dads being replaced by Raising Hope. Horrible ratings for The Mindy Project.

    AGT really skewing older this season.

  • jT

    Go new girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The post Superbowl spot should solve the viewer issue (since the next Superbowl is being predicted as biggest ever).

  • CarShark

    Whose Line held pretty firm. Interesting.

  • luka

    Go FOX! :)

  • Steven

    I see Fox swapping Mindy and Brooklyn by the New Year. Also hoping Dads crashes quickly so Raising Hope can be rescued.

  • ToXiX

    YESSSSSSSSS for Brooklyn Nine Nine

    So glad it didnt flop.

    Why did Fix even bring back Mindy lmfao

  • Babar Suhail

    I am sure many people just watched Dads to see why the critics were grilling it.

  • Phil

    @Oliver

    Capture was always going to get renewed

  • erwanfromfrance

    I’m very happy about New Girl ! Hope it will be adjusted up to a 3.0% to start the season on a high note. Mindy Project could have done much better, disapointing.
    It is pretty low for Brooklyn 99 and Dads with the fact they had no competiton.

  • rob60990

    I Love Bates Motel

  • Sara

    CW holding up really good! Who’s Line is a smash hit!
