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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    IF REVENGE RATINGS KEEP FALLING IT WILL SOON MATCH THE QUALITY OF THE SHOW: ZERO.

    ABC NEEDS TO MOVE THIS FAILURE TO ANOTHER TIMESLOT.

    PLEASE ABC DO SOMETHING TO SAVE YOUR SUNDAYS FROM THIS FLOP.

  • Ron

    Yikes, that demo for CBS is scary low. Nothing hitting a 2.0?

  • alex

  • CrimTV

  • Andy

    Wow horrible night for CBS… please don’t cancel Amazing Race or Good Wife!

  • Nerdbot

  • Mon

    TGW took a plunge! woooosshhhhh!

  • taylor

    Revenge will adjust up 1 tenth and only be one tenth down from last weeks 1.9 which is good against going up the walking dead.

  • Paul

    Sunday is the new Friday.

  • Sierra

    Walking Dead murdered Revenge

  • Watcher

    Ok I’m legit stunned by Revenge’s numbers Last night was great and an upgrade from last week’s snoozer. Ah well I hope the powers that be have their endgame in sight because to have a show like this not get a proper end, would be a disservice to fans.

  • EatMorePez

    All CBS shows will rise next week when they get the late football game.

  • Joe

    Holy mother of wow at TGW and TM!

  • queeneeuq

    Homeland was so boooorring yesterday. :-P

  • SJ

    Well it’s only episode 3 and Once Upon a Time and Revenge are already back to spring levels. Congratulations, ABC, you’ve successfully ruined your two once most promising shows.

    Horrible for The Good Wife and The Mentalist – both at series lows. They will both be gone by the end of the season. Hawaii 5-0 and Blue Bloods did better on Friday and TGW and TM actually started on time this week so they have no excuse for performing this poorly.

  • JR35

    Hopefully OUAT adjusts up, but at least it’s not at new lows.
