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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

 
  • Phil

    Not good for Reign but it should be renewed.

  • Andrew43

    Let the Scandal hating begin.

  • Seth

    Not good for Michael J. Fox

  • Royalty

    Scandal still rules!!

  • psychic

    Reign is incredibly boring. The main actress can’t act. I felt like I was watching a high school play.

  • Dillan

    I can’t see “Reign” getting a 2nd season.

  • Midnight

    Go Elementary!

  • Tea

    Good numbers for Greys

  • Doug

    Well I guess plugging in The Voice didn’t help in the ratings much for NBC…

  • Bran

    Greys and Big Bang were amazing last night

  • Michael

    No Scandal. Adjust up!

  • psychic

    Also, what’s going on with TBBT?

  • RayX

    the unfunny Michael J. Fox Show should go lower.

  • joy

    Hope TVD adjusts up!!

  • Sara

    Elementary just saved it’s ass. For now.

  • Michelle

    Reign is still holding up ok like ttp I hope it gets adjusted up

  • Wagner

    I guess Reign is a goner.

  • CraveRecords

    Reign is easily one of the worst shows The CW has ever put on the air. And that’s saying something.

  • hammard

    So once again the CW shows drop 2 tenths in (at least initially) opposite World Series. Surprised it happened as much for these female oriented shows though.

  • Alejandro

    So if TVD remains at the same rating it and SN will be tied for the top show of the week. Of course it could still adjust up or down, but I hope it remains the same then both shows fans can be happy this week :)
