NBC was number one in adults 18-49 but CBS won with total viewers.

On NBC, Dateline matched last week's 1.3  adults 18-49 rating.

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

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.

    And we have also been told that CBS puts the shows that got syndication on Fridays to build up episodes because it is a WEAK night and doesn’t have to worry about beating highly rated shows. All the shows you mentioned are up against much more difficult competition.

    If H50 were in any of the other spots of the shows you mentioned, it might not be sitting at 1.4. It might be worse than TGW or TM.

    And if TM and TGW were to switch nights with H50, H50 might be at 1.2 or 1.3.

    Then the tables would be turned.

    As I have said many times. It is only surviving because of syndication and Friday night.

    Why be upset? It has one more year. I wouldn’t say more than that though.

    BTW: I am not hating on the show. I have not used derogatory language or insulted anyone or anything, unlike some here.
    I am only stating what I see as the truth in the numbers.

    As we’ve all seen ad nauseam, Randy is “fascinated” with H50′s syndication deal. She is veeery focused. LOL!

    @AllOfHerTw!st You are correct that the real comparison is in relation to other shows on the same network. H50 is doing just fine! :)

    Conjecture is so much fun!

    Hoowah!

  • Randy

    Jen and Annalise,

    I am a SHE??? You must be Chrissy. Will you ever stop obsessing on me and everyone who says the slightest thing about H50 that you take as a negative and say we are all the same person? That is what YOU do.

    You are now pretending to be a whole bunch of different people. Don’t you understand that Bill has your email address? He is a bright man and you are sickly obvious.

  • Randy

    @AllOfHerTw!st,

    Of course conjecture is fun! Isn’t that why most of us are here? LOL

    But you didn’t really address my points which means you SEE my point. That is all I ask. :-)

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    I see your point is to constantly slam H50! I’m in the Friday finals thread now.

  • Mike

    @Randy

    You do realize that syndication is what saves a lot of show…………. Can we please move on and grow up

    Also the ratings are comparable to the networks current state not other networks in terms of success..

  • Mike

    @Randy

    ILL ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS.. MY ANSWERS WILL BE IN CAPS AS I DONT KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT BOLD OR HIGHLIGHTED…

    And we have also been told that CBS puts the shows that got syndication on Fridays to build up episodes because it is a WEAK night and doesn’t have to worry about beating highly rated shows. All the shows you mentioned are up against much more difficult competition.

    I WOULNT SAY THAT THE MENTALIST OR GOOD WIFE HAVE A LOT MORE COMPETITION. I DONT BELIEVE IT WOUDLD HAVE A HEAVY EFFECT ON THE RATINGS.. ONCE UPON A TIME IS LIKE H50 GOING UP AGAINS SHARK TANK.. AND MENTALIST GOES UP AGAINST REVENE (UM NO). AND NO I HAVENT BROUGHT INTO PLAY THE CABLE SHOWS..

    ALSO DO YOU HONESTLY THINK THAT MENTALIST AND GOOD WIFE WOULD CONTINUE TO BE RENEWED WITHOUT SYNDICATION AS WELL.. LMFAO.. SYNDICATION IS THE MONEY MAKER IN THIS BUSINESS FIRST AIRINGS ARE A PART BUT SYNDICATION MEANS EVERYTHING SO THE FACT THAT YOU KEEP MENTIONING THAT MAKE NO POINT…

    If H50 were in any of the other spots of the shows you mentioned, it might not be sitting at 1.4. It might be worse than TGW or TM.

    WHAT OTHER SPOT DO YOU MEAN EXACTLY.. DO YOU MEAN MONDAY? BECAUSE I BELEIVE IT WOULD BE GETTING THE SAME RATINGS AS LAST SEASON.. HOWEVER DO YOU MEAN SUNDAYS.. THAT MAY BE TRUE, THEN AGAIN IT MAY NOT BE… THATS ALL SPECULATION.

    And if TM and TGW were to switch nights with H50, H50 might be at 1.2 or 1.3.

    ID SAY NO TO THE GOOD WIFE AND POSSIBLY TO THE MENTALIST, AND H50 I COULD SEE PULLING THE MENTALIST NUMBERS FROM LAST SEASON 1.4 AND UP.. MENTALIST ON FRIDAY I COULD SEE IT PULLING THE SAME NUMBERS AS POSSIBLY H50 BUT LIKELY CSI NY NUMBERS.. GOOD WIFE I COULD SEE PULLING MADE IN JERSEY FRIDAY NUMBERS WITH THE HIGH BEING 1.2 POSSIBLY 1.3….. AND NO IM NOT HATING ON GOOD WIFE I HAVENT SEEN IT YET AND WISH IT A PROPER ENDING AND I DO LOVE THE MENTALIST… AND THEN AGAIN THATS ALL STILL IRRELEVANT SPECULATION..

    Then the tables would be turned.

    SPECULATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL:)

    As I have said many times. It is only surviving because of syndication and Friday night.

    MENTALIST IS NOT OWNED BY CBS IS OWENED BY WB.. ITS SURVIVING BECAUSE WB LIKELY LOWERING LICENCE FEES (OR CBS DIDNT WANT TO CANCEL ANYMORE SHOWS LAST SEASON THOUGH ITS RATINGS WERE FAIRLY GOOD) WB IS SIMPLY ADDING MORE EPISODES FOR SYNDICATION… AS IS GOOD WIFE BUT IT IS OWNED BY CBS… AS I BASICALLY SAID EARLIER.. SYNDICATION IS THE CASH COW IN THIS BUSINESS TO SAY A SHOW IS ONLY SURVIVING BECAUSE OF SYNDICATION IS ODD AS THIS IS WHAT THE NETWORKS WANT.. TO GET MORE AND MORE EPISODES FOR SYNDICATION….

    Why be upset? It has one more year. I wouldn’t say more than that though.

    ID SAY IT HAS AT LEAST 2 MORE SEASONS I CAN SEE IT LASTING FOR UP TO ABOUT SEASON 6-8.. BUT THATS JUST SPECULATION ON YOURS AND MY BEHALF. BUT BASED ON THE NETWORKS DECLINE THEY GONNA START FIXING OTHER NIGHTS BEFORE DECIDING ON WHAT TO DO WITH H50.. COULD H50 END NEXT SEASON YES BUT I CANT REALLY SAY FOR SURE UNTIL NEXT FALL TO MAKE A MORE ACCURATE PREDICITON AFTER SEE THE NETWORKS SHOWS RATING TOGHETER..

    BTW: I am not hating on the show. I have not used derogatory language or insulted anyone or anything, unlike some here.

    ACTUALLY THAT IS FALSE IF I RECALL CORRECTLY I HAVE SEEN YOU PANDER PEOPLE BEFORE ABOUT THIS SUBJECT BEFORE.. FOR SOMEONE TO SAY THEY ARE NOT HATING ON A SHOW, WHY ARE THE ONLY COMMENTS I HAVE PERSONALLY READ FROM YOU ARE AT LEAST 90% ON BASHING H50…

    I am only stating what I see as the truth in the numbers.

    YOU MAYBE SEEING THE NUMBERS BUT YOUR NOT GOING ABOUT IT CORRECTLY.. H50 IS DOING GOOD.. GRIMM IS DOING GREAT. SHARK TANK IS DOING AMAZING. AND THATS THAT :)

    @Mike,

    Do you yell at home the same way you did here? Makes me think YOU have the obsession about H50, not me.

    Your reaction shows me that YOU are the one with zero objectivity. Take a chill pill. It is only a TV show,not the end to world peace.
