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 baseball 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.

  • Revenger

    Yess yess yess Revenge
    Anyone have half hours for Revenge and Once???

  • Alex

    Good numbers for OUAT and Revenge- I see them increasing in the coming weeks as we approach fall finales. Next week is a big episode for ONCE (We are back in Storybrook, very hyped!)- Revenge also had a great ending last night. – ABC may want to consider putting Revenge at 10 which would help it even more. Hopefully ONCE adjusts up since it went up in its half-hours!

  • Cle

    Hope this is the start of upward trend both to OUAT and revenge..

  • Ultima

    no Mentalist?

    It didn’t air during primetime in most of the country; CBS pulled the originally scheduled episode and replaced it with a repeat.

  • betty

    revenge is the best

  • Setheriel

    Oh, hell yeah!
    OUAT and Revenge up! Fantastic episodes of both last night. Especially OUAT, best episode of the season by a mile.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    The FOX repeat of ” Bob’s Burgers” was actually a repeat of The Simpsons from Season 3 as homage to Bart’s Teacher who’s voice actress died. That’s why it rated so well. Please correct

  • John A

    Nice rise for Revenge. Good for TGW. Hope it dont adjust down.

  • Alex

    I have a feeling both will start to increase as we get to the good parts of the season :)

  • TVDude

    Good to see that OUAT and Revenge show a little life.

    Fox is probably missing the World Series.

  • Alex

    Once will go up again next week- I think it is very hyped. We can see storybrook again

  • Alexis

    This season of Revenge is terrific, a definite step up from the much-maligned second season (although I didn’t hate it as much as most). I’ll wait for the finals before celebrating, but it does seem like the show rose and it’s well-deserved if so. I hope it generates some positive momentum and stays in the high 1’s (I can’t see it reaching 2.0 and above again, but I’d love to be surprised!).

  • Rob R

    Good Wife almost hitting 10 million viewers! What an incredible creative run the series is on now.

  • Cle

    OUAT will hit a 2.5 next week… :)

  • Ultima

    FOX’s numbers are obviously down from the first two weeks of the season, but they are virtually flat year-to-year (excluding The Cleveland Show)…

    2012 – 2.6, 1.8, 2.5, 1.8

    2013 – 2.5, 1.8, 2.5, 1.9

  • s0303

    hopefully tgw doesn’t adjust down…it’s been so good this year…mentalist will almost for sure be cancelled this year, but i think the good wife has a chance for one more season due to its quality…

  • Alex

    I think Once will once will hit at least a 2.5 soon

    Revenge does have a shot at getting a 2 esp for the midseason finale

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Are they showing the new episode of The Mentalist, that they were supposed to air last night, next week? The previews they showed for next week’s Mentalist episode, after The Mentalist repeat they ran last night after TGW on my local CBS affilate, were for the following episode.
