Scoreboard NBC CBS FOX ABC UNI
Adults 18-49: Rating/Share 4.9/13 3.8/10 2.1/6 1.5/4 1.1/3
Adults 18-34: Rating/Share 4.5/14 3.0/10 2.3/7 1.2/4 0.7/2

NOTE: Due to the nature of live  programming the ratings for NBC & CBS (NFL Football)  are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers.  In San Diego, the NFL Network's coverage of the San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders game aired on the CBS affiliate, which means CBS numbers may be inflated.

NBC was number one among adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

On NBC  Sunday Night Football, which featured a match-up between the Texans and the 49ers earned a preliminary 5.7, down a full ratings point from last week's preliminary 6.7  adults 18-49 rating from 8:30-11PM.

On CBS, The start of prime was delayed by 44 minutes in the Eastern and Central timezones, making preliminary ratings essentially worthless. In San Diego, the NFL Network's coverage of the San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders game aired on the CBS affiliate, which means CBS numbers are subject to inflation as well. Check back tomorrow for the finals to get accurate, non-scrambled ratings for 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race , The Good Wife and The Mentalist.

On FOX, The Simpsons matched last week's 2.9 adults 18-49 rating. Bob’s Burgers garnered a 1.9, down three tenths from last week's 2.2 adults 18-49 rating. Family Guy notched a 2.5, down a tenth from last week's 2.6  adults 18-49 rating. American Dad was even with last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, Once Upon A Time scored a 2.5, down a tenth from last week's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were spot on!  Revenge garnered a 1.9, down four tenths from last week's 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too optimistic. Betrayal notched a 1.1, down four tenths from last week's 1.5 adults 18-49 rating.

Definitions:

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 baseball 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.

    Revenge is dead.

    It will not make it to season four. I hope ABC gives the writers advanced notice so they can wrap everything up by May 2014.

  • casey

    I’m first- too bad for Revenge

  • Tony JJ

    Geeez I hope revenge doesn’t fall any further

  • Simon

    Once Upon A Time down but not out!

  • Seth

    The Simpsons are in Beast Mode.

  • EatMorePez

    How’s this for hilarious. Last night’s episode of “Betrayal” was entitled . . . Except When the Bear Is Chasing You

    I bet the bear will catch it next week.

  • jupiter3765

    abc soap opera boycott is hurting revenge

  • John A

    Revenge already below a 2.0. So what the excuse for Revenge crap ratings this week? Next week will be The Walking Dead i guess.

  • fringegot5seasons

    Ouch for Revenge. ABC must not be very happy with Betrayal either. I doubt it’ll see November.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Ouch at Once and Revenge!I didn’t expect tha drop for Revenge.

  • Zth

    Wow, Revenge finished last in its timeslot, even behind The Good Wife.

  • erwanfromfrance

    NOOOOOO !!!!!! Revenge !!!!!! Why ???? This season is so much better than last season ! Hope it can be adjusted up !!!!

  • Dylan

    Half hours for revenge please

  • Hi

    So, upward for Good Wife????

  • EatMorePez

    Dante with yet another pre-written, cut and paste comment.

  • Revenger

    Revenge will probably adjust up to a 2.0 atleast. I have no worries. It will live to see season four, which gives it 2 seasons to build its ratings, so it can be a huge hit once more. I see a few more seasons out of this show, and if not a few atleast season 4 is pretty much for sure….

  • M

    Revenge needs to switch time slot ASAP… Tuesday at ten is open!

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    CBS: Please swap Hostages time slots with The Mentalist!

  • Stephan

    Poor Revenge. I guess it’s true what they say. Once you loose the viewers it’s so hard to get them back. And Revenge is really good now. Has been since the middle of last season. I do hope it adjusts up.

  • jupiter3765

    revenge will still probaly get renwed though
