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


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.

    How did Letterman beat Leno? Seems like there’s something wrong with those numbers.

  • Petar

    You could see the Dracula collapse in last weeks numbers – people tuned in but barely half stayed until the end.

    @Matt M: “The Carrie Diaries just MAY sneak a short-episode 3rd season renewal. It just may.”

    I think it depends on if they want another show to go along with Dixie next season. It’s useless to try and put a new show there and of all their shows TCD seems to be the one who’s most compatible. That said, they might try to pair it with Reign instead but Reign might be killed by the fact that it’s rather expensive compared to TCD…

    The gain of Grimm after the bad lead in is amazing. From a 0.7 lead in to a 1.5 !! . Next week with Dateline back , Grimm and Dracula will probably get better numbers,
    The hopes of CBS that H50 was going to make their Fridays stronger are gone. Bad numbers for H50 , in low 1s already and dropping after the lead in. BB is a better performer for CBS.

  • Matt M.

    #4 network, ABC, just won the first 2 nights of November sweeps. Congrats!

  • David Howell

    Big drop for Dracula, the scheduling was awesome for sampling but it’s not looking so useful now. Still, for a Friday co-production, 1.3 would be enough. It’s still ahead of *any* NBC comedy!

  • rob60990

    A Shark Tank/The Neighbors crossover? Hahaha reeks desperation. It may provide a small gain but it wont be anything long term.

  • John A

    Rather watch Dateline than that Vampire special crap NBC.

  • Matt M.

    Blue Bloods and Hawaii-Five-0 will both probably be renewed. They are a good pair for Fridays, and are monsters in total viewers and OK performers in the demo.

    FUN FACT: Blue Bloods has only dipped below 10 million viewers ONCE in its entire 4 year run on CBS on Fridays, which was October 5th, 2012 with 9.8 million viewers.

  • Charmed

    TCD almost doing the same as HoD, and it might adjust up. They would make a good pair on Friday next season. I think TCD should stay as a limited series, I think 22 is too much, and this is coming from a huge fan!

  • cc

    Not surprised by the Dracula drop, borrrrring.

    Grimm will go up in the finals.

  • Percy

    Looks like Grimm and Hawaii Five-0 might adjust up!!! :) and Hawaii Five-0 has been doing better the blue bloods and is doing well on Fridays

  • Eelna

    Yay for carrie

  • charmedcraft

    Can’t believe Dracula dropped that much, I hope it can recover.

  • Sarah

    I really hope Bones does better than MasterChef Jr when it moves.

  • omabin


    I think Bones has a decent shot at winning the hour, especially because it has no other dramas to compete with apart from The Carrie Diaries!

    The gain of Grimm after the bad lead in is amazing. From a 0.7 lead in to a 1.5 !! . Next week with Dateline back , Grimm and Dracula will probably get better numbers
    Next week UB and H50 will probably get better numbers as well.

  • Charmed

    @omabin Bones and Carrie attract completely different audiences, they shouldn’t be a threat to each other. I actually think Bones could be for Fox what Ghost Whisperer was for CBS years back.
