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


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.

    Lets be honest here. I watch Pms because I’m a life long Tim Allen fan, but it really isn’t that great of a show.

    >>AnnaG, the only reason H50 looked good last season in mid-fall/winter was because NBC stupidly put Revolution on hiatus at the end of November, which gave H50 a chance to up its viewership. I guarantee you that if Revolution had remained H50 would have tanked. Revolution was creaming it in the demo every week they were head to head before Revolution left.>>

    Agreed Revolution started out very strong and first 6-7 episodes were basically crashing H50 and Castle in demo. As of episode 8 ratings went down pretty much to 2.6 (premiere was 4.1 demo and The Voice was lead-in). The show was buring out quickly as the writing deteriorated and the main actress was getting on everyone’s nerves. That’s why NBC was affraid to air Revolution without the Voice – it would have collapsed much faster than it did. You really think that woithout The voice Revolution would be getting high 2’s – well I guarantee you it would NOT! Look what happened to “Deception”?
    Hiatus didn’t hurt Revolution AT ALL – it returned with HIGH 2.6 demo but it collapsed to 2.3 week later (killing off Danny) and I think to 2.2 later. It matched Castle for Pete’s sake. The finale w got barely 2.0 ratings.

    >>Grimm should pick up the fans who are viewing the Sleepy Hollow repeats that many are watching now plus the Grimm fans it normally has. Between Grimm and Shark Tank, H50 might end up in third place in the demo.>>

    Yes it’s possible – I’m curiou myself how H50 will do against Grimm.

    >>What many are forgetting is H50 was supposed to be another NCIS and TNT bought the rights to it at the end of season one, prematurely as it turns out.
    So now H50 fans are happy that it will “survive.” IF it does it will be because CBS is a clever business and TNT was duped by them.>>

    H50 was getting very solid numbers on Monday for 2 seasons – of course it did not become NCIS or even CSI – still it was very solid performer on Monday nights. And yes, we fans are happy that our show is still on the air and I don’t really care that it’s due to syndication. I’m happy for it :)

    >>Without that deal with TNT in season one, we wouldn’t even be talking about H50 now.>>

    Again – so what? Are you bitter than your beloved show (whichever this is) didn’t get syndication deal?

  • Cath

    Since Hostages has a definite end game story arch CBS probably won’t get rid of it. The problem is: where would they put it. They have run the repeats on Saturday so maybe they are thinking of moving it there, but then what will they do with Monday at ten (central)? They need something to go there. If they are happy with Hawaii 5-0 where they have it they will have to wait until they can decide on that.

    Why people complain about shows that they do not watch on networks that they do not watch is a mystery.
    Why should they care? It is one of the oddities of this site. The people who trash shows just…because…

    “Why people complain about shows that they do not watch on networks that they do not watch is a mystery.

    One of many oddities for sure on this site. Not sure if it is more a case of people being trolls or just poking fun at CBS, you know, the “Crime Broadcasting Syndicate”, and their proclivity toward cop shows. CBS also has the oldest skewing audiences of the networks, in contrast to the CW’s youngest. Me, I just complain about cheesy singing competition shows, regardless of the network.

  • Steve

    There is no need to worry about H50. That is pretty solid numbers for Friday night. CBS looks stable on Fridays with H50 and BB numbers.

    Seriously, H50 will get another season especially consider it is now in syndication on TNT.

  • Rem

    Interesting that Blue Bloods runs the obligatory homosexual victim episode and its ratings in the demo slide even lower than H50 this week.

  • eridapo


    H50’s syndication numbers are horrible for TNT, so I don’t see TNT to buy any additional seasons beyond this…

    H50 will gets its 4 seasons will approx. 90 episodes. CBS might give it a shorten 10 episode order to bring it to an even 100, but it is unlikely.

  • Adien

    Don;t think CBS is too concern about their Friday night line up yet. Total viewership might actually be up from last year. Expectations for demos are low on Friday. Just keep those pharma targeting over 50s happy with some ad space!

  • methix0r

    @james if it keeps pulling 1.4-1.5+ and 9mil + it wont be cancelled and i have a feeling its gonna adjust up

  • methix0r

    hawaii five 0 will get 5-6 seasons , if the ratings hold up on friday but i dont see it going past 6 unless it is very stables from here onwards

  • Raykov

    I didn’t say they would cancel them JUST because they’re old. BUT there’s possibility that cast won’t want to come back or showrunner. I didn’t know CM signed 2-years contracts so I put it with CSI and NCIS. But they’ll all end in one of these seasons and most likely won’t run for another 10 seasons.

  • K

    Only good show on Friday night is MSJ. Those young people are very smart when it comes to cooking, especially should be front runner, Anthony.

  • John A

    H50 really held up well with the friday move. It was struggling on Monday but at this level is fine for CBS Friday.

  • John A

    Will be interesting to see if Grimm affects H50 and i forget is Fox airing anything new at 9pm for the season?

  • Feedback

    ABC is on a roll. I think they can actually recreate a Friday sitcom line-up if they play their cards right. Maybe if they moved a solid player like “The Middle”, it can carry Friday’s line-up. Pair it with “Back in the Game”, “Last Man Standing” and “Trophy Wife”, and they might actually win the night.

    Of course, it might seem best to not mess with a good thing and keep Shark Tank on Fridays, but I think it could actually find success elsewhere. If OUATIW doesn’t do that well at Thursdays 8pm, I can see Shark Tank moving there. It obviously won’t beat TBBT, but it will probably keep doing it’s solid 1.6-1.8 rating.

  • omabin

    @John A,

    I agree that H50 is so far showing to have survived the mood much better than I ever thought it would. I am extremely happy for the show. As for your question, FOX had originally schedule Raising Hope/Enlisted for 9pm starting in November but has recently said they would instead go with double episodes of Raising Hope. I doubt it will happen though, we shall see.

  • Chris_SAdvisor

    @John A – Yes, Grimm will knock a few points off H50 but only for Live. L+3 will be unaffected, and since it is syndicated, it should not matter. Right now H50 could fall to 1.3 and still be viable for Friday. It is a dead night.

    Dracula is getting a lot of talk but looks like a dud to me. A strange combination of overly artistic scenes, with lower video quality action sequences, built around an intrigue driven plot, that seems very simplistic. It is a mash-up of CW and NBC, on a budget somewhere in-between. It seems to be the new NBC plan – to do everything on the cheap and hope something catches. Even Blacklist was not full funded, though since they have picked it up for the full season, hopefully that will change. I do so hate the low quality action-cam shots that are shoehorned into an otherwise respectable level of video in *any* show, as if action is supposed to be grainy and blurry (relatively).

  • Aeiouy

    Can’t wait until Hawaii 50 hits a 0.5

  • lakersupbyten

    Five o is the top CBS show in demo…and 2nd highest viewership….mahalo five fans!!!!
