Nielsen TV Ratings: ©2013 The Nielsen Company. All Rights Reserved.You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.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 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.

    @Kissan, I think it would be a big mistake for NBC to continue to have comedies on Thursday for the 2014-15 season. So The Blacklist may be needed for Thursday. And I do think some of midseason dramas have potential. I really like the concept of Believe and Crossbones, so Parenthood may be a goner. Night Shift is a medical drama and I feel people are tired of that.

    Okay, pretty confident Revolution is done now. It’s a shame because the show has improved so much this season over the borderline-trainwrecky first season.

    But it is NBC. Revolution keeps ticking down slowly, week after week…but so does NBC as a whole, and I really wonder where the bottom is for their scripted fare. CW ratings? Jesus.

    I hardly ever watch regular TV broadcasts anymore, I only tune in for The Walking Dead and Revolution, so I really hope Revolution picks up. I think the characters are fantastic.
