NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

Definitions:

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.  More information on ratings is available here.

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.)

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.

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.

    Should of put Happy endings after last man standing

  • rob60990

    ABC could just replace The Neighbors with LMS repeats. They could show repeats from last season since i dont think all those episodes were repeated and if they were it was only once.

  • Andrew

    Mindy’s ratings doesn’t look so bad now.

  • J.R.

    They should have left both shows in their old time slots that’s what happens when you move things around..IDIOTS stop moving the shows around!!

  • steve

    I figured Shark Tank would do a lot better. Over 2.0 for sure. They have had a promotional push the past two weeks, figured that would generate more viewers for the season premiere.

    I guess ST has a limited audience, no matter what they do

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    What were the numbers for the LMS season finale?

  • court

    last man standing was good show until season 2 premired. the new actor for kristian the oldest daughter ruined it. shes to old for the part. i was disappointed because i really liked the show :(.but now i dont want to watch with the new girl she sucks.
