Definitions:

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    No looking good for H50. Four weeks being the only scripted original drama and not only didn’t gain any more viewers but has lost a few. Trouble ahead when Grimm returns, because Grimm next season looks good.
    If TNT drops it, and they have a good reason to do it with the bad numbers it is getting , that will mean H50 death. Well, it won’t be missed. The show is so boring

  • dantas

    @queeneeuq,

    OMG! Do we need to start this again? The Neighbors WILL be canceled by May 2014.

    Wow, Grimm hasn’t even premiered yet and we already have its fans ranting about H50. I for once will be glad if both Grimm and H50 get good ratings. Both shows went through some difficult times and they weren’t cancelled after 1 season of just after few episodes. In the time of quick cancellations (after 4 weeks we have already 4 shows cancelled) it’s good that fans can still watch their favourite shows.

  • Randy

    Alyssa,Diana,Tim,and others,
    That is how I see it also with H50. TNT numbers are literally off the charts negatively and it has been in syndication 12 weeks. It has no other scripted show against it on CBS and it is still dropping. Grimm is coming and I don’t know when FOX will air something besides repeats there.
    All the excuses I have read are the same old ones categorized clearly here as Fan Excuse Bingo.

    Facts are facts. IF it goes up or down a tenth is irrelevant IMO because it doesn’t have much competition. ST is creaming it.
    We will know more when Grimm returns.

    I keep saying the following because to me it is the key as to whether H50 gets renewed or not, regardless of its ratings on CBS.

    I think it all hangs on TNT and since we aren’t privy to TNT’s deal with CBS we really don’t know its future. It is tanking even more badly there than I would have ever predicted. That HAS to be significant to TNT with the 2.5 million per episode they are spending for the rights to air the episodes.

    Unless they are already locked into 100 episodes or so and can’t change that, would they want to renew their contract with CBS for H50?

    Obviously CBS wants the show to continue because syndication is paying so well. They are getting very poor ad money for it so without syndication, this show is dead in the water.

    So I think H50′s future all hinges on what is going on behind the scenes in syndication.

    Wish we knew.

    ‘Grimm next week, h50 will crash. LOL’

    __________________________________________________________

    These are the kind of comments that so infuriating – ‘LOL’????
    Why do wish for 5-0 (or ANY show to fail)?

    BTW – Grimm’s FINALE posted a 1.6 last year, WOW, that’s powerful!
    Enjoy your Grimm and please let 5-0 fans enjoy their show without your snide comments week after week
    ________________________________

    That’s how people are on here.. One day they’ll have their shows cancelled and know how it feels.

  • Deo

    I may be wrong, but I think Hawaii 5-0 is geting some viewers from Castle fans (the same way I think on mondays some H.5-0 fans are watching Castle); Castle usually has a lot of viewers but it doesn´r reflect on the demo and I think
    H.5-0 used to have less viewers with better demo. I say this because I know there a lot of people who like both shows but had to choose one of them before…

    LMS did much better this week! Hopefully it’ll stabilize out just a bit more then that way it will be right around its average ratings for last season. Unless it completely falls dead, again it would have to drop down into CW ratings territory, I’d say LMS will be okay. A 4th Season is far more likely than not right now. Every episode inches it closer to the 88 needed for syndication. I will be physically stunned in May if it doesn’t get that 4th year renewal.

    SSTW is a show I do plan to see when it’s season is done, along with Welcome To The Family. I’m actually pleasantly surprised at both shows, they seem to be performing pretty passably right now. To get a 1.0 on Friday is hard, never mind cracking it. NBC I imagine is pretty happy with that right now, as they should be. Hopefully those two shows will at least live to see a 2nd year. I’m genuinely happy for things looking a bit better for NBC right now. They really needed some good luck. They’re by no means out of the woods yet, but the season is off to quite an encouraging start for for them-certainly compared to the last several seasons that is. They still need a real breakout smash hit but I’m more hopeful now that will come eventually.

  • ludoredjohn

    How long before Hawaii goes back to Mondays and replaces that awful Hostages show?

  • Mike

    @randy

    You do realize that regardless of how it’s doing on tnt it won’t be canceled this year at least…. And also TNT isn’t the othly place that it could be sold into syndication… It could be sold to other networks for a lower fee of course.

    But anyway I said it gonna be renewed either way if it doesn’t sing further (AND I AM BY NO MEANS DEFENDING H50′s ratings) because CBS has other problems in ratings with their dramas to worry about now…

    Hostages: everyone know it’s canceled
    The mentalist: likely to be canceled
    Good wife: not doing good either
    Elementary: took a huge dip this week and has no syndication deal at all
    Blue bloods: I’m sure this is sticking around and has better chance at renewal but it has NO syndication deal…

    Midseason dramas intelligence and reckless and likely to be canceled due to the fact that CBS hasn’t renewed a midseason drama sense The Unit (correct me if I’m wrong)

    Also CBS is only likely to cancel 2 fall dramas this year unlike the normal 3 unless one of the midseason shows get renewed

  • Restless

    Glad The Neighbors went up a bit. It’s such a cute feel good show. :)

  • Maria

    @Joseph A
    Just an FYI out there to those that don’t get these numbers are only part of the ratings being used ,

    for example ,, per Nielsen for the week of October 7th, based on Live viewing and DVR playback on the Same Day, defined as 3am-3am.

    There were the top scripted shows ,
    1 , The Big Bang Theory, Demo 10.7 , audience 17.636
    2 , NCIS LA , Demo 9.3 , audience 14.839
    3 , Persons of Interest , Demo 7.4 , audience 11.652
    4 , The Millers , Demo 7.3 , audience 11.729

    nielsen.com/us/en/top10s.html

    How convenient of you to forget the tiny tidbit of info that’s after “…, defined as 3am-3am.”

    Let me paste it here for you: Ratings are the percentage of TV homes in the U.S. tuned into television. ? Otherwise known as Share, NOT the A18-49 demo!

  • eelna

    Really glad for Reign. There are a few people like me, who liked the pilot very much,to watch it again. Or they didn’t watch Thursdays and did last night. Which is a good sign, so Reign can keep up. I loved it. Hope it gets renewed. Better than HoD and BATB, TCD and Nikita.

  • Doug

    @Bill – you’d better hurry – Welcome to the Family has already been cancelled. I’m sure that SSTW is not far behind.

  • Austin

    why do some people hate The Neighbors so much? O_O

  • Randy

    @Mike,
    Yeah, I realize it is likely to be renewed, which is why this show is so fascinating to me. BTW: BB is headed toward syndication this year and I understand that that is why CBS kept it around and put it on Fridays.

    However, we haven’t seen H50 up against its competition yet. Starting Friday Grimm will begin airing and I imagine soon Fox will stop its repeats and start its shows with new episodes.So, what would happen if H50 and BB do more poorly than TM and TGW do on Sunday after they get real competition?

    Sunday has more competition than Friday and what if they still do better?
    I like TM but I can see it is winding down. I don’t watch TGW but I have heard from many that it is a quality show and has won awards. Plus Nina Tassler loves it! LOL

    Would they ever decide to cancel H50 and move TGW to Friday?

  • bluejays

    Those numbers for HFO and Blue Bloods are perfectly ok for Friday ratings!! I don’t get the worry, or the critics. Obviously if they really tank next week with NBC competition I will worry. And by tank I don’t mean lose a point or two but really drop.

    But with the Sunday shows doing so badly and the ten pm slot so weak – especially Elementary – those numbers are very good for a Friday.

    You guys do know that Friday shows get lower numbers in general right?

  • bluejays

    @Randy.

    Why is HFO so fascinating to you?? I ask this genuinely.

    It’s not as if it’s ratings are truly terrible and therefore it being on air at all is a mystery. Last year there was only a *negligible* difference between it and the other ten pm shows! And the year before it was the *top* ten pm show.

    So why do you keep acting as if it is a really bad rating show when it isn’t?? Now if you were talking about the writing – well that’s a whole other story. But lots of badly written shows survive for years.

    HFo may be gone this year, it might last another two or three, but it’s not some freakish underperformer given tons of chances, which, with all due respect, seems to be what your posts are saying.

    And I say this as a huge fan in season one, and someone who missed some of season three and might never catch up with all of season four as I do feel it has gone downhill. I’m not a fangirl of the show anymore, but it definitely isn’t some terrible loser show. Right now it’s about equal with Elementary for this week, when Elementary should be way ahead, and in front of Hostages.

    Same is true for Grimm / H50 Fans. I will watch H50 and DVR Grimm. So Grimm
    H50 Haters don’t count your Nielsen ratings just yet.I’m betting a lot
    of H50 Fans were watching Grimm last year and won’t be this year.

    People act like H50 is in real danger, but the reality is that most of CBS’ dramas are down this year. Elementary barely did better than H50, and it’s on a night with TBBT as an anchor for the night. H50 is doing fine for Fridays, and would have to fall significantly to be in any more ‘danger’ than most of CBS’ other dramas.
