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.

    It’s time to cancel The neighbors and move Back in the Game to Fridays at 8:30. It would perform much better there.

  • John A

    Great for Shark Tank. Up 8 tenths from its crap lead in. Probably will adjust up too.

  • Matt

    It’s time to cancel The Neighbors and move Back in the Game to Fridays at 8:30. It would perform well there and LMS and BITG actually make sense together.

  • John A

    I wonder has the neighbors hit pulled from the schedule numbers now for ABC?

  • Renz

    HAHAHAHA The Neighbors 18-49 Rating: 0.9 Share: 3 Total: 4.13 LOL ABC, get rid of “The Neighbors” and go back to back with “Last Man Standing”. The Neighbors has got to go!! What a shame for “Hawaii Five-0″ and everyone else. Remember last year when it was between 1.2-2.3 in 18-49 Rating…that was something!

  • John A

    CW should just Cancel ANTM. Those numbers arent good. Friday night be a good night for repeats for CW.

  • Renz

    BTW it’s NOT a shame for “The Neighbors” bc the show sucks!

  • Cam

    Does the Friday numbers for MJF and SSTW get added to the numbers they got on Thursday for a “total number”?

  • rob60990

    The Neighbors falls below a 1. Great news. Paul Lee should get his walking papers for renewing this among other stupid decisions.

  • Ram510

    I wish Last Man Standing was on Wednesdays, I think it would do better there

  • r0ckmypants

    @John A – “I wonder has the neighbors hit pulled from the schedule numbers now for ABC?”



    CBS #1 in 18-49 for 3 straight days as entire slate stabilises from week before

    ABC LMS down again & TN now below 1.0, 20/20 1.1 @ 10 as ST only salvation for night

    NBC 1.1 for Dateline (can’t wait for Grimm) as 8-9 sitcoms are Grimm both Thurs & Fri

    FOX doing pretty good w/ MCJ but SH doesn’t repeat well, nor does TP for the CW & ANTM only 0.4

  • Renz

    @Cam , No, it’s a shame though. it could of helped MJF and SSTW.

  • Rollie

    They won’t pull Neighbors for at least another week or two. Remember how much LMS and MC fluctuated each week last year?

  • John A

    What did i say was confusing? The Neigbors doing terrible so ABC may pull it.

  • Rollie

    Maybe it’s time for an ABC drama on Fridays again?

  • chloe

    Abc better not put suburgatory on fridays

  • Percy

    Half hours for Hawaii Five-0?

  • anna g

    I can overall drops in demo compared to last Friday. For CBS Undercover boss is dragging the whole night down. H50 again increased in demo and overall viewership and this episode was excellent – the best so far this season. BB didn’t change.
    For ABC Shark tank dropped a bit but it still almost doubled its predecessor’s demo number. I don’t think any other show does that in the whole week. 20/20 was down much – I think last Friday it had 1.6 demo.
    It’s goona be interestin situation when Grimm returns.
