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.

    Glad to see ABC take two victories this week – and the first two days of sweeps! Really solid for LMS, Shark Tank and 20/20. Neighbors is the weak link.

    Hopefully Grimm will rise a little bit next week. It looks like it is going to be a great season and it is still a solid Friday performer. It is actually beating a many non-Friday dramas. Even Dracula isn’t doing that bad. It did just as well as Parenthood.

    I will be interested to see if TCD adjusts up. If it does I think it bodes well for another shortened season. I think it would pair quite nicely with Hart of Dixie next season.

  • Carmen

    The Neighbors fate is going to be determined by how well it does with the time change and it getting dark outside an hour earlier.

    I believe that this is what ABC is thinking also. At the very least they want to see how it performs with the time change before making any renewal / cancellation decision.

    I have a suspicion – not based upon any imperial fact, but only a hunch – that a camp, non raunch family show on a Friday like The Neighbors may benefit more from the time change than many of the other 8-9 hour shows during the week.

  • Dahne

    Here’s hoping Grimm adjusts up. I predicted a 1.4 – 1.5 for Dracula, although I am not surprised. I don’t think it’s done falling yet. Many people sampling but not enough people happy with its progress.

  • DougF

    Coming from someone that has no rooting interest in carrie diaries, if it stays like this for the season I wouldn’t be surprised if the CW renewed it for another 13 episode season.

  • Michael

    How low do you think Dracula can afford to fall before it’s cancelled by NBC?

  • Cara

    CBS is still well on Friday night! Don’t care about all the other shows!

  • Will

    I’m very surprised that Grimm fell to a 1.5, How could viewers who tuned in last week not watch the conclusion to the premiere? I’m guessing it will adjust up to a 1.6-1.7

  • Heather

    @Mike 1 Undercover Boss 1.4 H50 1.3 not a big drop BB doing better with a 1.3, lol. H50 gained viewers over Undercover Boss, BB gained viewers over H50. I think everyone will agree stiffer competition at 9 than at 10.

  • Tim

    H50 a 1.3 demo. CBS must be thrilled with such a great result :-)

  • s0303

    grimm didn’t do bad…it’s still the highest drama on friday night and it had the worst lead in…

  • Timmy G

    The CW should be “satisfied” with Carrie’s ratings. Not good by any means, but again, when they moved it they had to have known it’d get .3’s. So fact that that it might adjust up to a .4 is very positive and puts it on par with its ratings from last year. BATB is even more pathetic now. It’s ratings don’t justify 22 episodes, not even on the CW.

  • T

    carmen the Neighbors got a 22 eps pickip in may doesnt need a decision till then

  • Alex

    Ouch @ Hawaii 5-Over. Was this the episode written by an internet poll?

  • HeadlessHorseman (formerly JacobYates)

    As of right now, TCD is dead. However, if it maintains this .3 rating for the majority of its episodes, then the CW might hold off on any announcements for the show until May. Then if they end up not liking their pilots, their midseason shows bomb, or TTP and/or Reign collapse in the Spring, TCD could get a renewal as midseason spackle. But that’s a long shot.

    Dracula’s ratings fell hard. Judging by all the negative reception, I’m not surprised.

    I hope the Neighbors stays at 1.0 so maybe a cable network might invest in it. But that’s also a longshot.

  • John A

    Why are people celebrating a 0.3 for TCD? Repeats could do the same as that.

  • skyfi

    Dracula is dead.
    BatB would get better numbers on fridays than on mondays. TCD proved it once again. Friday was always a good night for niche shows.


    Damn shark tank is a beast lol. Friday night smash. Neighbors is a dud in the slot. Honestly I would love to see a multi camera show after last man standing. While Hawaii 50 demo down its viewers are higher. It’s a Friday night fun. I am glad to see there is traction on Friday nights. I actually think Friday is better then other nights.

  • diana

    CBS dramas skew really old. A 1.3 demo is a bad number , even for a Friday. At least BB has the toughest 10 pm slot, but no excuses for Hawaii 50 .
    Good for ABC.

  • tommie

    @Timmy G – I guess it depends on why they renewed The Carrie Diaries in the first place. They might’ve not had the funds to premiere more shows this fall or been disappointed in their pilots and putting Carrie Diaries as cheaply produced filler on the non-important Fridays might’ve been seen as the only viable option. Now that they have a working Tuesday-Thursday line-up and the only real disaster is their Mondays they might not need to give out pity renewals next season.

  • Carmen

    @ T

    No, If it continues at 1.0 or so, they will need to decide on its long term potential long before the end of the season.

    If it shows no improvement with the time rollback, it will be gone before the start of the spring season whether or not all 22 episodes have aired.
