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.

    I really want to like Shield but so far it is underwhelming. The production values are good and I actually like the cast and characters but for some reason it doesn’t click. I’ll give it another two episodes and then I’m out.

    Great for Chicago Fire. It now is a solid hit for NBC.

  • bjssp

    To the woman whose husband is a firefighter: what’s wrong with CF?

  • Mike

    k:Alex-Agree with you about the second episode of the Goldbergs being better then the pilot.But the first episode was an introduction thing,while now its becoming like The Wonder Years of the 1980’s (in a good way).

  • Nathan

    I never expected Agents of SHIELD to keep a 4.7, that’s insane. Especially against the Voice and NCIS with Cote de Pablo leaving.

    Agents of SHIELD pilot was worse than episode 2 imo. Think we should trade Chloe Bennet for J. August Richards as regulars.

  • Bryan

    @tv_viewer

    Person of Interest is only safe because it’s in season 3 and CBS will likely barrel ahead for a fourth season and the syndication friendly number of 88 episodes. If it was already in the fourth season it would be in major trouble.

    You can’t compare a Tuesday show to shows that air on Friday either, as Friday draws less viewers. If you put POI on Friday’s its ratings would drop even lower than they are now

  • frodo

    To much panic over Shield, it will probably adjust up tonight and stay around the 2.7 – 3.2 mark, the drop was bound to happen especially with so much competition. The pilot was a bit slow but the second episode was definitely and improvement. If the Goldbergs stays around the 1.9 – 2.3 range than ABC should be Happy. Trophy Wife however looks really vulnerable. Luck is out the door anytime now.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Lucky 7 drop was expected but ouch for Trophy Wife.

    Shame about AoS because the second episode was much better than the first. Still pretty good though considering the competition. Speaking of which, I expected NCIS to be much higher.

  • Gleebo

    Clear out Dads and get Raising Hope back to open the night FOX.

    Figured Agents of Shield would drop but didn’t think it would that much.

    Looks like Blacklist may be the best performing new show of the season this fall.

    “Shaw is a mini-Reese without the charisma, empathy, sexiness, or credibility that Jim Caviezel brings to the part.”

    Say what you want about Shaw. You can *not* say she isn’t sexy. She is. I actually really like her character. And I’m not bothered by the fact that she’s similar to Reese. That’s part of the reason I like her.

  • Walker

    Lol Lucky 7. They’ll probably can it before the week is up.

  • Jarmusch

    Well, at least The Mindy Project is definitely going to be cancelled. That’s something!
